To demonstrate Hertz's apparatus (a full scale model of the original device used for the production and transmission of electromagnetic waves).
- Large induction coil
- D.C. Powerpak
- Hertz's apparatus
- Fluorescent tube
Hertz Apparatus Setup.
The induction coil is connected to Hertz's apparatus which consists of a pair of large square plates separated by a spark gap. The approximate values for L and C in this arrangement yields a resonant frequency of ~ 55MHz λ=5.4 metres.
The production of electromagnetic waves is demonstrated by the lighting of a fluorescent tube.
