E field on a plane surface..

Nails sticking up through a piece of styrofoam insulation.
Rectangular wire can be a Gaussian surface that shows the number of
field lines captured depends on the angle.

Van de Graaf with light strings attached to it. Field lInes.

Hoberman sphere can be a Gaussian Surface of equipotentials and show
how V decreases by 1/R''

Putting the flourescent tube perpendicular to the surface lights up the
tube showing there must be a potential difference.
