Name: Jason Vazquez Partner: Xing Lin TA: Faisal Yaqoob Experiment #2 Electric Potential Equations: (1) U = qV (2) F = qE (3) E = Voltage Change / Position Change Procedure: Non-Circle Sheet: Connect positive terminal to the power supply of the upper bar and the negative terminal to the lower bar. Use connection labeled 0-12 Volts. Turn on power to about 5V. Be sure connection is on DC and set the multimeter to measure voltage on a 20V scale. Record the voltage for each lattice point along the central, upper, and lower bars, using excel to graph these points. It should form a roughly straight line. Using the slope of the graph as well as equation (3), compare the two and find the electric field in Volts/meter. Once completed use excel to format an x-y scatter of your results which should form a roughly straight line. Circle Sheet: Perform the same procedure as the Non-Circle Sheet, however, measure every bar instead of the central, upper, and lower. Once every lattice point voltage is accounted for input
