Picture of how to make an electroscope easily
electroscope.normally made with thin gold plates and glass jar,rare for normal people and costly enough for a student to buy or not may be.but now i will show you how to make one from ordinary materials at cheap rate.but what is an electroscope?its a type of instrument used to measure electrical charge.it is a great tool for using and simple to operate tool for any lab.

if you like this project visit my profile:http://www.instructables.com/member/argha%20halder/ for more science projects.so lets start.

oh if any mistake forgive and help me correct.

Step 1: The things you will need

Picture of the things you will need
the things needed can all be found at house.the things you will need are:
1)plastic or glass jar or cup that are transparent.(must be transparent)
2)aluminium foil small piece is enough.
3)1 paper clip.
4)cardboard piece small one.
5)a scissor
6)insulative tape or any tape 

May I put aliminum foil in the same direction

can we use stample not paperclip?

You could use anything that conducts electricity. So you could use staple, wire and anything that might conduct electricity. Hope it helps :)

Otherwise I will try to find it

can we use stample not paperclip?

I did exactly how you said but my electroscope is not working!! please help!

There might be a few things that could have gone wrong in your project while testing the electroscope what did you use? If you are using a comb make sure to rub it well on you r hair to produce a charge. Also make sure you are testing it on a humid day. The second thing is make sure the paper clip you are using is not insulated. If you can, then post a picture of your electroscope, then I might get a clue of any mistakes. Hope it helps.
