Description: This dissectible leyden jar capacitor has two aluminum cups which nest together with an insulating plastic cup between. A metal stem comes up from the inner cup, terminating in a solid metal ball, so that when assembled it is a Leyden Jar. Its three component pieces can be easily taken apart. You can use a Wimshurst machine or Van De Graaff generator to quickly charge the jar, or you can use something like a friction rod and fur (much more time consuming). COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED.
Specifications: Overall Dimensions: 3" x 3" x 6" / 75mm x 75mm x 150mm Weight: 0.5 lb.
