PHY 132: Electric potential and electric Field II Abstract: There are two parts to this lab. The first consists of measuring the voltage with a set of dipole conductors, and creating equipotential lines in relationship to the dipole conductors. The second part uses oppositely-charged coaxial rings, one smaller and placed inside the larger one. Measurements are taken between the rings to show voltage and the relationship between the natural log of the radius and the voltage. Objective: The objective of this lab is to view electric fields through water. This will be demonstrated using both dipole conductors, and oppositely-charged coaxial rings.

Procedure: The first part of the lab needs a set of dipole conductors, using pennies clamped to the bottom of a tank. The clamps should run to a generator. Using a volt meter, 6 equipotential lines are drawn to show the path of the dipole. The second part of the lab, uses two rings, one almost ten times the size of the other. The smaller one is placed inside of the inner one in the water filled tank. The
