Unformatted text preview: point charges and the line charges) we recorded the electric potential at every value of x between x = 6 (the location of one charge) and x = 6 (the location of the other charge). After that, we measured the equipotential lines, by finding other locations where the electric potential was the same as on the x-axis for any given integer x- value. III. Data The tables of the volts vs. x- values are displayed here, along with the graphs. Diagrams showing equipotential lines and field lines are attached to this report. IV. Analysis This data shows that the electric field is significantly different for point charges than it is for line charges. V. Conclusion Potential at y=0, point charge y = 0.6396x + 5.1377 R 2 = 0.935 2 4 6 8 10 12-8-6-4-2 2 4 6 8 Potential at y=0, line charge y = 0.8238x + 5.02 R 2 = 0.9991 2 4 6 8 10 12-8-6-4-2 2 4 6 8...
