EXPERIMENT ES1: INTRODUCTION TO ELECTROSTATICS VI-1: For the first part of this experiment, we were asked to calculate the fraction of charge (p), which was transferred from the proof plane to the pail. The data is shown below. # V 1 (Volts) V 2 (Volts) p = 1-(V 2 /V 1 ) 1 0.811 0.088 0.8989 2 0.484 0.025 0.9483 3 0.503 0.036 0.9284 4 0.302 0.048 0.8411 5 0.168 0.032 0.9437 Average p 0.9121 Standard deviation of p 0.0441 P +/- σ p 0.9121 +/- 0.0441 VI-2: Next, we inserted the proof plane ¼, ½, and ¾ of the way into the pail, and once nearly touching the bottom before actually touching the bottom and recording readings. The data is shown below # V 1/4 (Volts ) f 1/4 = V 1/4 / V final V 1/2 (Volts ) F 1/2 = V 1/2 / V final V 3/4 (Volts ) F 3/4 = V 3/4 / V final V 1 (Volts ) f 1 = V 1 / V final V final (Volts) 1 0.974 0.901 0.991 0.916 0.996 0.921 0.983 0.909 1.081 2 0.253 0.955 0.260 0.981 0.259 0.977 0.257 0.970 0.265 3 0.386 0.879 0.408 0.929 0.406 0.925 0.401 0.913 0.439 4 0.536 0.910
