Question 9

Describe with the help of a diagram an instrument which can be used to detect a charged body.



An electroscope can be used to detect whether a body is charged or not. In an electroscope, two metal foils are hanged with the help of a conductor in the glass jar with lid. When a charged body touches this conductor then its charges get transferred to the metal foil and they separates due to like charges. This shows that an electroscope detect charges.
