Electromagnet

(Science: physics) a mass, usually of soft iron, but sometimes of some other magnetic metal, as nickel or cobalt, rendered temporarily magnetic by being placed within a coil of wire through which a current of electricity is passing. The metal is generally in the form of a bar, either straight, or bent into the shape of a horseshoe.

... to be in between – touch the mouse directly to the ionizer and see whether there is an effect. Another would be to touch it to a reasonably strong electromagnet (these are fairly easy to make, and it is also easy to measure their strength). Most electric devices are far less delicate than computer ...

Ok, I got one for you. Determine the affects of electromagnetism on fish. Place a electromagnet in the center of the tank, and observe the reaction of the fish. Just be sure to not to use greasy dirty stuff to stick in the tank, afterall we do not ...
