In 1755, Benjamin Franklin, curious about the workings of electricity, began testing various hypotheses. In one of his experiments, Franklin took an electrified silver can and dangled an uncharged cork ball (attached to a non-conductive silk string) into the can. The cork ball was not attracted to the interior of the electrified can. Puzzled, Franklin […]
