Faraday Ice Pail

This experiment is designed to show that elecrical charge is stored on the outside surface of a conductor. When a neutrally charged probe is touched to the center of the pail no charge is removed from the pail. However if the probe is touched to the exterior of the pail, charge will slowly be removed from the pail.
