    +crzysoxalex13 As long as the wires are hooked up exactly as they are in
    the video, the cans can be positioned anywhere you want. It’s perfectly
    fine if you set them on the table.


    I had a doubt. When the cans are a bit distant then the tab doesnt get
    attracted to one can and simultaneously to another, but when the distance
    between them is reduced, the tab starts its activity. Why is that so?

    You should have jumped and screamed when you connected the foil.

    That was too cool. Yeah kind interesting how the aluminum tab was attracted
    to the yet still aluminum can. Makes me wonder if the tab had a positive
    charge in the first place and then conducted a high voltage negative charge
    and what we’re actually seeing is the discharge fluctuations pulling the
    tab back and forth. .. Idk. Sure was cool to see. Thanks for posting.

    Very nice example of capacitance.

    You guys are a couple of mad scientists! Strange I’ve never watched this
    one before. Nice post!

    Interesting setup you’ve got there. I wonder if the back and forth movement
    is caused by the rapid charging and discharging of the actual plastic pen:
    when the little aluminum clip makes contact with either coke can, part of
    the charge is picked up by the aluminum clip and stored in the plastic of
    the pen through the thread. The clip is then attracted to the opposite
    potential (the can connected to your body) where it looses it’s charge, and
    the cycle repeats. Anybody has a better explanation?

    That is really cool.

    I’m an electrical engineer and deal with component level electronics and
    all that stuff but i couldn’t help but laugh at myself for how cool i
    thought this was. Sure making a self balancing controller and algorithm
    thing is cool but man, 2 cans, a pen, string, some wire and foil turning
    into a cowbell made me laugh like a school girl. Yea they mention this in
    chem and electrostatics but to actually see electrons moving a pop-top is
    way cooler. I don’t need an Arduino when i got my CRT.

    it taken me 32 mins and 30 seconds so watch thin cus of the awefull wifi

    Question: Why are the residual electrons left on the screen have high
    voltage, but low current?

    We have been trying for last 2 days with a CRT monitor(17 inches)
    But it does not seam to work. Please help us as my son needs it for his
    school fest.

    I did this experiment today and it worked! I’m an electrical/electronic
    hobbyist and build valve and transistor radios
