Today, we will try to describe what is happening when we operate a gold leaf electroscope.  

Watch the following video and record your observations on the Electrostatics Lab hand-out.  See the example below the video for #1 for how to record your observations.  Upload pictures of your hand-drawn observations handout to Google Classroom.
