Electrostatics Objective: to investigate production of static charge, conservation of charge and the behavior of charges on conductors interacting via Coulomb forces. Theory: When two substances are rubbed together they exchange electrons. The material with excess electrons will acquire a negative electrical charge, while that with a deficiency of electrons will be positive. In general, charged materials do react with other materials’ electrons at a distance or when in contact with the effect of causing electron charge redistribution. [Please refer to course notes and textbook for a detailed account] Materials Needed: One Electrometer and accessories, one Faraday Ice pale, and three aluminum disks, Experimental set up: Note 1: All lab entries must be made into the lab notebook, not on the lab handouts, and in real-time. Lab entries must include both data and comments. Moreover, you will need the comments for your Lab Report’s Discussion section Note 2: Every member of your group should take at least one data set in each experimental subsection. Note 3: Discuss with your group the physics behind each experimental exercise for this to be a meaningful and rewarding experience for all of you. Getting Started:
