Use the elastic bands to secure the copper stands to the plastic cups as visible in the picture. Attach alligator clips to the ends of the two lose wires as in the picture. Each table should have one

Along with the initial apparatus set-up, supply a sufficient number of the appropriate paper procedure handouts for all of the lab sections that will use the set-up over the course of the week. Print the PDF, duplicate to double-sided pages, staple, and leave pile on instructor's table prior to first use of set-up.
