Jacob's Ladder is a high voltage climbing arc. The 15,000 volt difference between the two copper pipes creates a very high electric field and ionizes the air molecules. The air changes from an insulator to a conductor and an electric arc forms that "climbs up the ladder". Created by AP Physics and Mr. McGraw's gifted students Danny Sallurday and Jake MacDonald class of 2016.
