Caption: Physics experiment. 19th-century illustration of pieces of paper, ash, and cork, hovering and moving in the air above a sheet of paper carrying a static electric charge. The movement is due to the electrical attraction or repulsion of the charge. The static electricity is generated by friction. This illustration, part of a section titled 'Experiences de Physique sans Appareils' (illustrating popular physics experiments that don't require the use of laboratory equipment), is from 'Physique Populaire' (Emile Desbeaux, 1891).
