CALCULATIONS (On separate sheet) 6. DISCUSSION Out percent error ranges to about 10% to 20% in comparison from our experimental values to theoretical. The main source of error is incorrect set-up. The lab manual was not specific enough on teaching us how to set up the connections, which would have sent the voltage elsewhere, changing the values. The RMS method is the best method to use in this situation because it gives the closest values. The percent error between slopes is about 28% of the plots of the theoretical and experimental values. 7. CONCLUSION We measured the voltage induced in a coil by a changing magnetic field and compared it with the predicted value by Faradays law. Page 2 of 2...
