PHY-132 Electric Potential and Electric Field I - Lab Three Joshua Manski Partner: Sandra Thoms Date: September 18 th 2008 SLN# 82129, Thursday 12:00pm Brian Morrison Objectives : In this lab we set out to analyze the electric fields and the electric potentials surrounding electrodes in a water bath. This lab showed the connection between electric potential and electric fields. We learned how to calculate the fields by using the electric potential readings. Experimental Procedure : To start this experiment we first placed two metal bars in the glass container that had a shallow water level. Underneath the glass was a sheet of graph paper. This paper was used to align the metal bars so that they were parallel to each other as well as to note measurements. We then used a function generator to apply a positive and negative charge to each of the bars and noted which one was ground. We connected a DMM so that we could monitor voltages. We
