  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

A study of static electricity wouldn't be complete without building a Leyden Jar. This historical piece of science equipment was developed in the 18th century and became a precursor to the battery. If you're planning to study circuits, this is a great activity to bridge your student's understanding between static and circuit electricity.

Questions Answered:

  • How can a charge be carried from place to place?
  • How can a Leyden jar hold more or less charge?

Topics Addressed:

  • Electrostatic charge can be stored
  • The electrostatic charge increases on a Leyden Jar as the charge is added
  • The shock collected by a Leyden Jar depends upon its size and how much its charged.

Learn to use scientific equipment:

Leyden Jar, electrostatic charging rods

NGSSMS-PS2-5
Conduct an investigation and evaluate the experimental design to provide evidence that fields exist between objects exerting forces on each other even though the objects are not in contact. Examples of this phenomenon could include the interactions of magnets, electrically-charged strips of tape, and electrically-charged pith balls. Examples of investigations could include first-hand experiences or simulations. Assessment is limited to electric and magnetic fields, and limited to qualitative evidence for the existence of fields.
