Unformatted text preview: Nigel Chou Prelab for Lab 4 1) 1 1 + 1.0 F 2.0 F In parallel: C = 1.0 F + 2.0 F = 3F Since Q = CV , and Q is the same across both, the capacitor with the lower capacitance will have the higher voltage. Thus the 1.0 F capacitor has the higher voltage. In series: 2) 1. Increase the number of coils 2. Use an iron rod instead of a cardboard tube 3) C= 1 = 2 F 3 ...
