Unformatted text preview: S4 Equipotential Surfaces and Electric Field Lines PHY 158 (page 1) In this lab you will complete the following tasks: a. Find several equipotential lines for four different electrode pattern b. From the equipotential lines you will determine the electric field lines as well as the magnitude and direction of the electric field vector E at selected points on the graphite paper Graphite paper Sheet No.2 Graphite paper Sheet No.3 Section V-0: In this section you choose four of the conducting electrode patterns shown below. The electrode patterns are pre-drawn on separate sheets of graphite paper using conductive nickel paint. Try not to touch or rub the electrodes, since this may reduce their conductivity.
