The Wimshurst Machine
Electrostatic induction refers to the principle that charges in an object (especially a conductor) redistribute themselves in the presence of nearby charges. Opposite charges are attracted to each other, while similar charges are repelled.
Larger charges can be stored by connecting the knobs to Leyden jars which are component parts of the machine.
