We investigated the charging characteristics of a conducting solid sphere (glassy carbon sphere) comparing with that of a water droplet and check the applicability of the perfect conductor theory. For the systematic research, sphere size, applied voltages, viscosity of the medium were changed and the results were compared with that of corresponding water droplets and the perfect conductor theory. Basically, a glassy carbon sphere follows the perfect conductor theory but the charging amount was lower as much as 70~80% of theoretical prediction value due to oil film formed between electrode and a carbon sphere. We hope this result provides basic understandings on the solid sphere contact charging phenomenon and related applications.
