Introduction: Spark Machine
- shotcky diode
- 9 volt battery
- 400 volt capacitor
note: BE CAREFUL WITH THE CHARGED CAPACITOR! THE CURRENT WILL EASILY PARALYZE YOUR HAND!!!!!
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Locate Poles...
locate the positive and negative poles.
Step 2: ...solder...
now, solder the negative lead (on the diode) to the positive lead on the capacitor.
Step 3: ...charge/discharge.
Now for this step, put the positive lead on the positive terminal of the battery and negative on negative for 5-10 seconds. To spark this Instructable, touch the leads to any conductive metal and watch 400 arching volts charge the ions in the air and spark!!!!!!!!!!!!!
