  • After messing about with CRT's a bit I kept thinking "Mehdi! DEFLECTION! Magnets!" I'm a total noob but worth a thought.

  • Well, the electron ray itself should not be visible just like this, in a cathode ray tube it can be usually seen only on some screen with special fluorescent paint, maybe try that next time

  • 1:17 but if an electron experiences more force towards up then it will go more up than centre and nsow has more down force. So it will go in a SHM.

  • It would be really interesting if you could do the double-slit experiment with electrons in a cloud chamber. Would the alcohol vapor cloud cause the wave to collapse and behave like a particle immediately causing two vapor trails (i.e. similar to placing the observation screen extremely close to the double slit) or would it show trails of vapor disruption that align with how the interference pattern would form?

    • If you're so scared of radiation, i recommend watching some videos about it. It's not as demonic as the average person thinks. I personally recommend _Illinois EnergyProf_ and _Thunderf00t_ Both have or still do work with radiation and are very good at explaining it. They both have multiple videos about this topic. Enjoy learning \(^.^)/

  • This is a very poor vacuum -- unfortunately, the tech for making a really good vacuum is frustratingly expensive and specialized. You can get much better results, and a much better distinction between a cold and hot cathode, with a high vacuum. (you need a much higher vacuum to get truly ballistic flow of electrons, and at that point no current will flow unless the cathode is hot.)
