Note that the 2nd photo shows the red string reaching out toward the plain plate on the other side after a charge has been applied using a WIMSHURST MACHINE. Click on the photos to select and/or enlarge.

You can also place a PITH BALL ELECTROSCOPE between 2 charged plain plates, and watch in amazement as the pith balls "dance" frantically between the 2 plates.
