1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Hello all. I need help or ideas on making an experiment in which I need to show the electric field lines. I think it should be somewhat similar the the experiment when you put lots of little metal pieces on a piece of paper and then you put a magnet below the paper, and all the metal pieces align themselves along the magnetic lines. Preferably the experiment should be simple.. as it needs to be done in very short time ( part of a science project ). Thanks in advance!
