E01 Solutions-1 MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY Department of Physics 8.02 Experiment 1 Solutions : Equipotential Lines and Electric Fields IN-LAB ACTIVITIES EXPERIMENTAL SETUP 1. Download the LabView file from the web and save the file to your desktop (right click on the link and choose “Save Target As”). Start LabView by double clicking 2. Connect cables to the output of the 750 (red to the sin wave marked output, black to ground). One member of the group will hold these wires to the two conductors while another maps out the equipotentials. 3. Connect the Voltage Sensor to Analog Channel A on the 750 Interface 4. Connect the black lead of the voltage sensor to the black output (the ground). You will use the red lead to measure the potential around your landscapes. MEASUREMENTS Part 1: “Standard” Configuration 1. Choose one of the two “standard” conducting paper landscapes (the dipole or parallel plate configuration) 2. Use the voltage connectors to make contacts to the two conducting pads 3. Press the green “Go” button above the graph to energize the battery and begin recording the potential of the red lead (relative to the black lead = ground). 4.
