Leyden Jars, an early style of capacitor, can be connected to the two electrodes of the Wimshurst Machine. They will store charge as it is generated, giving a much stronger spark across the gap. Next we have a three-piece dissectible ...

Two flexible wires are suspended vertically. The wires are conected in series or parallel to a 12V storage battery. When the wires are connected in series and power is applied they will repel each other; when they are connected in par...

MIT Physics Demo -- Levitating Magnet
