EXPERIMENT ES1: INTRODUCTION TO ELECTROSTATICS Liz Hauke 2/4/08 Lab Partners: Alexe Pask, Rebecca Rader, Danielle Chambers TA: Andy Russ VI-1: For the first part of this experiment, we were asked to calculate the fraction of charge (p) which was transferred from the proof plane to the pail by measuring the voltages produced when the proof plane was touched to the bottom of the pail, and then touched to the bottom again after the pail was discharged: VI-2: Next, we inserted the proof plane ¼, ½, and ¾ of the way into the pail, and once nearly touching the bottom before actually touching the bottom and recording readings. We were asked to find the fraction of the original proof plane charge transferred to the pail at the given increments: VI-3: In step 6, we recorded readings using two charge producers (blue and white) to investigate charge conservation: # V blue (Volts ) V white (Volts ) V final (Volts) 1 1.887 -1.695 .2942 2 1.492 -1.502 .0936 3 1.448 -1.327 .2358 VI-4: For this section, we measured charging by induction by inserting the proof plane,
