~ 3 ~ I. Objective : In this experiment we will study and observe the relationship between Capacitance, Voltage, and Charge for a parallel plate capacitor. We will do this by taking individual variables and making them constant, then changing the others to observe the change. Method : **Before starting any experiments we made sure that the plate capacitor was calibrated correctly to read 1 mm when fully closed. We also checked to make sure that it was uniform across the surface of the plate.** PART 1: V measured, Q variable, C constant 1. First we set the equipment up as stated in the handout. We made sure the voltage source was set to 2000 Volts Direct current and set the sphere away from the plates as far as realistic. We turned the voltage on. 2. Next we zeroed the electrometer of residual charge by pressing the “zero” button repeatedly and set it to read on the 30 V scale.
