OBJECTIVE The purpose of this experiment is to map equipotential lines, using a computer-controlled DC supply; for a parallel-plate capacitor, a point charge with guard ring, and a two-point charge configuration, one being at +10V and the other at 0V. To prove how the electric field created by any charge or group of charges is everywhere perpendicular to the associated equipotential

Unformatted text preview: surfaces and points in the direction of decreasing potential. CONCLUSION By the definitition and graphical representation of an electric field, we come to the conclusion that the electric field of a point charge always points away from a positive charge but towards a negative charge. Different equipotential lines have different potential values, therefore, equipotential lines can never intercept....
