EXPERIMENT ES4: EQUIPOTENTIAL SURFACES AND ELECTRIC FIELD LINES VI-1: In the first part of this experiment, we marked potentials of 2, 4, 6, and 8 V on graphite paper with silver conducting paint in two parallel bars. a. Connecting the points produced the blue equipotential lines on sheet 1. b. Electric field lines going from positive to negative were drawn in black. c. Using the equation = , I was able to find the electric fields at a point B (between the 2V and 4V lines), and a point C (between the 6V and 8V lines): E B = (4V – 2V) m E B = V/m E C = (8V – 6V) m E C = V/m VI-2: In the second part of this experiment, we marked potentials of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 V on graphite paper with silver conducting paint in two dots 10 cm apart: a. Connecting the points produced the blue equipotential lines on sheet 2. b. Electric field lines going from positive to negative were drawn in black. c.
