Jacob's Ladder

SKU Code: REMZ31-B

When an electrode is charged with a high potential, the electrons will flow taking the shortest distance towards the other electrode. Therefore, the current flow begins from the lowest part of this Jacob’s ladder. As the current heats up the air, it also rises. This setup therefore obeys the law - that heated air rises. As the air ionizes, we observe that electricity can be transmitted through air. Since this setup involves high voltage and currents, it should be operated after necessary safety precautions are taken.
