PH 1120 - Electric Potential & Determining Resistance Lab Report Your Name: Connor Downie Section: B09 Partner’s Name: William MacDowell Date 11/9/10 1. Can two equipotential surfaces with different potential values ever intersect or cross? Answer and explain briefly. No they cannot ever intersect or cross because they are relative to the distance away from the individual charges and therefore it is impossible for them to ever intersect. 2. Do the numerical values of equipotentials get larger or smaller the closer the equipotentials are to a negative charge? Answer and explain briefly. The values get larger, and that is because the closer it gets to the charge, the value of r gets smaller and smaller, and when you divide by r, it increases the value of the equipotentials 3. Write each of the four least-squares results for the resistance (slope) measurements, including the uncertainties, in standard form. Also, write down the average ± standard deviation obtained from Excel in standard form. Resistance
