Theory The equation below gives the attractive Force between two plates of equal area when a voltage is maintained between the plates causing them to have charges of equal magnitudes but opposite signs. F=E o AV 2 /(2d 2 ) F is the force of the attraction in Newtons, A is the area of each plate in square meters, V is the potential difference between the plates in volts, and d is the distance

Unformatted text preview: separating the plates in meters. Data and Calculations In our experiment F was ______, A was ________, V was ____volts, and d was _____m. Our value for E o was _____, while the actual value is _______. Our resulting percent error was ______. This was calculated by the equation [1-(experimental value/ actual value)] x 100= Percent Error Conclusion Our data was within a reasonable range of error to confirm the value of E o ....
