Unformatted text preview: the strongest there. Depending on where you drop the test charge, it can increase the potential at positive end, and decrease on the negative. If we drop the point charge at the positive end makes the charge go to the negative side. This shows that energy is contained at various places in the electric field for example, high potential energy at the positive and low potential energy at the negative. Also if the test charge id dropped in the middle it will travel faster the n if dropped on the outside edge which will cause it to travel slower. The difference in the electric potential between two points in space can be physically measured because there has to be two points to create that potential difference. In this lab, we got to experiment with test charges, electric fields and equipotential lines with applications of Coulombs law. 2 equal magnitude but opposite charges 2 equal magnitude like charges A positive point charge and a negative parallel plate...
