The Electric Field From Multiple Point Charges October 13, 2006 Performed By: Mitch, Arun N., Sanmi O., Nick T. TA: Hung-Sheng Chiang Problem: The question we attempted to answer in this lab was what the electric field at one corner of a square would appear, given that the other three corners of the square were imbued with a set amount of charge. The values of charge were to be (–q) in opposite corners, and in the third corner with charge the value was (1/3q). Prediction: We predicted that the electric field would behave according to the equation (K*q)/L² at each point. If you take the field between the point of interest and one of the 3 charged points for each charged point, then add all of them up (as Vectors) you will get the resultant vector with some degree of accuracy. Data: See Data Sheet

Experiment and Results: We opened up the program “EM Field” and made a box with the correct dimensions, treating every line on the grid as one meter. The charges we used were -6C in the two opposite corners, and 2C in the third corner. The length of each side of the square was
