How To: Use high voltages using the Wimhurst machine

Use high voltages using the Wimhurst machine

In this video, we learn how to use high voltages using the Wimhurst machine. First, you must have a spinning wheel, double ended brushes, collecting combs, leyden jars, adjustable electrodes, and small metal plates. Once you connect all these together, you will notice the brushes on either side are perpendicular to each other and the wheel spin in opposite directions. Spin the wheel and then listen to the sound it makes. The plate will then charge with different electrons and create positive and negative charges on the opposite sides of the plate. As soon as it rotates, they will change to opposite charges than they were before!
