An electroscope is a device used to detect the presence of charge and it's relative amount.  The electroscope is usually constructed with a metal plate or sphere at the top of a metal post with thin foil leaves hanging from the bottom of the post.  This setup is typically supported in a flask or some other transparent enclosure.  If a charged object is brought near the top of the electroscope, the leaves at the bottom spread apart.  The greater the charge, the farther apart they move.

  • Electrons pushed by negative object toward the bottom of the electroscope.
  • The foil leaves at the bottom have a negative charge so they repel each other.
