F x (m) x 1 x 2 F (N) PHYSICS HONORS NAME: _Tarun Chaudhry _____ GRAPHING EXERCISE: ELECTRIC POTENTIAL 1) Calculate the magnitude of the force between a +1.0 μ C charge and a +1.0 mC charge that are distance r apart for each value of r in the table below. Fill in the table. r (m) F (N) r (m) F (N) r (m) F (N) r (m) F (N) 2) Draw a set of axes and graph force F vs. distance r on the grid below.

3) In chapter 6 you learned that the quantity called “work” is the product of the force acting on an object and distance it travels: W = Fx . If the force F is not constant, then work is the area under the curve of a graph of force vs. distance The area bounded by the F curve, the x -axis, and two vertical lines at x 1 and x 2 is the work done by force F as the object moves between x 1 and x 2 . The work can be approximated by breaking up the area under the curve into a series of rectangles. Each rectangle is one grid square wide. The height of each rectangle is equal to the approximate value of F in the middle of the rectangle. The total area under the curve is the sum of the
