Abstract, Experiment, and Observation Abstract: The purpose of this lab was to investigate the concepts of electric fields and to determine the shape of the equal potential lines that surround charged objects in the fields. The strength of a field is easily determined by measuring the potential difference over a given distance. The equation that models this relationship between the field and the equipotential lines is E = ΔV / Δx. Experiment: Lab Setup:

    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.
