Purpose: To study the nature of electrostatic fields by mapping and plotting equipotential lines. Procedure: 1. Draw diagram on page seven on a sheet of conducting paper and allow to dry 3-5 minutes. 2. Connect power source to electrodes. Check conductivity on electrodes. 3. Using digital multimeter, measure voltages at each one of the hatch marks between flared plates and 2 cm past the edges. 4. Connect points to find equipotential lines with the same voltage reading. 5. Draw electric field lines indicating direction with arrows. Indicate positive and negative plates. 6. Calculate electric field between two points, one each on two equipotential lines within the parallel plate region. 7. Calculate two more values in parallel plate region. 8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 for the flared plate region. 9. Compare values of E for the parallel plate and flared plate regions. QuickTime and a decompressor are needed to see this picture. Data:
