Introduction : In this experiment, our group was to explore both induced and transferred charges as well as experiment with capacitors. Data This experiment was made up of 2 parts. For the first part, our group used a Faraday Ice Pail to find the differences in charges that had been induced on 2 different rods. This allowed us to see the effects of inducing charges on different objects and the effects that had on that objects charge. We were also able to see the effects of transferred charges. For the second part, we used a capacitor to find the relationship between charge and the distance of the capacitor plates. We also used a dieletric to see if there was any change in capacitance or charge. Data Analysis : Part A Question: 1. When you removed the charged wand, did the electrometer reading return to zero? If not, what did it do?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
