EM4.3 Faraday Ice Pail Experiment

This consists of a metal beaker with coated balls on its side. THe beaker is charged with the Van de Graaff generator. As the beaker gains charge, the balls rise. This is observed by transferring charge to the projection electroscope with a test ball on a string. Charge remains on the surface and not inside.
