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.

### What students are saying

• 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.
