Measure Static Electricity using a voltmeter?

I am doing some research work, and I need to find a device that will measure static electricity very accurately (within1%) of moderately small voltages (15V). How can I do this with a $300-$600 budget?

I am mainly looking for a DIY method such as using a probe and hook it up to a volt-meter and measure static electricity that way?


Answer:

Not a good idea. The best way to measure static electricity is still the foil displacement method. Measure a foil weight, suspend it by nonconducting cord that can be moved to let the foil approach the static charge, touch the foil with one node of a battery (the polarity the same as the static electricy you want to measure, move it until you can see a measurable displacement, calculate the force necessary to cause that displacement. You can look up the equation.
