INTRODUCTION & 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....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
