|(5) Electroscope, (4) Replacement Leaves and Manuals.||Taylor 102, Demonstration Cabinet III Shelf B|
This economical electroscope is enclosed, preventing air currents from affecting the deflection of the leaves. Leaves are a combination of gold and aluminum developed to provide strength without sacrificing sensitivity. Each leaf is suspended from two small hooks, making installation simple. The leaves pivot, rather than bend, when charged. The metal case eliminates deflections caused by charges residing on glass walls. Leaf support rod is held in place by an insulating plastic sleeve.
