Capacitors (Contains Pre Laboratory Assignment) Objective: To measure (i) the properties of a single capacitor. (ii) the properties of series and parallel capacitors. (iii) the properties of a capacitor containing a dielectric. Apparatus The apparatus used includes: • Pasco variable capacitor apparatus • Regulated voltage supply (0-30 VDC) • Electrometer voltmeter with low capacitance cables • 330 pF (±2%) capacitor • Computer with Data Studiosoftware CapacitoPlates r Figure 1: Experimental setup. Certain parts of this experiment are sensitive to stray electrostatic charge. Avoid wearing clothing that contains polyester. Instead, wear fabrics that contain cotton.
