In order to use the practical training for beginners by means of a diagnostic X-ray, a leaf electroscope (which has a function to explain the ionization) was newly produced. The X-ray was introduced to the air in the electroscope having the electric charged leaf (the leaf was open at this time). The air irradiated by the X-ray was ionized, and then the produced ions or electrons were combined with charges on the leaf. As a result, the leaf was closed. In this way, experimenters can know the production and/or movement of charges by observing the conditions of the leaf. For the developed leaf electroscope, we added separators to divide the inner space into two regions; one is the irradiation area and the other is the space including the leaf. The separators have through-holes and/or a metallic mesh in order to create various conditions. In this paper, we described that different experimental results based on uses of the different separators were reflected in the ionization of the irradiated air and in the interaction of the charged particles. We summarized that the practical training by means of the developed leaf electroscope was valuable to educate beginners.
