This is a demonstration of how how electricity finds the path of least resistance...

Recommended Posts


At my dad's electronics lab we used to take a large Tesla coil and let the sparks fly out of it holding up a 2-by-4 the same way as above, and watch one of the sparks (like a constant little bolt of lightning) catch onto the board and start to burn a river of carbon until it got too close to our hand. Another thing the Tesla coil could do (besides making my sister's long hair stand on end) was to light up an unconnected fluorescent bulb that I was merely holding in my hand up near the sparks.

Interesting to see the "flow" doing its damage slowly like that......

The entire time electricity is flowing through the wood.
