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 Studio software Capacito Plates 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.
