Then model a three dimensional system as a perpendicular cross section of the field to the electrodes. Objective: To deduce the equipotential lines and the analogous electric field lines for a variety of arrangements of conductors in a plane. Procedures: 1. Set the power supply to 10 Volts. Use the paper with the two parallel lines first. Set up the single probe and use it to find a potential in between the lines. 2. Find 5 equal potentials inside the lines and 5 equal readings outside the parallel lines. Plot these points and connect them to see the configuration. 3. Obtain a graph while plotting V(voltage) vs. X to get the slope of the line and its resulting E Experimental value. 4. Hook up the other probe. Measure 4 locations inside the electric field and 4 outside the electric field. Note the direction the fields go as well....
