Second experiment failed

Hi everybody,

now I get to know what Edison meant by you need a thousand experiments to have one suceed. This time I created a plate capacity with whom I wanted to turn earth’s electrical field upside down. The electrical field strength of earth is roundabout 130 V/m so I hoped 45V and a distance of 21 centimetres between the plates would be good.



But again nothing happened, so I have to conclude that I’m fighting against earth charge which is 0.6 Megacoloumb and which is not featherable for me.

Now I’m thinking about the next experiment maybe something with rubbing. Wish me luck 🙂

Yours sincerly Till
