Introduction: Charged objects make an electric field in the space surrounding them. The field has both and electric field intensity and an electric potential. Objective: In this experiment I found the electric field potential and electric field intensity that surrounds a few different sets of charge distributions. Method and Apparatus: The apparatus used is is a conducting plate made out of cork board, resistive paper as the field plates,

Unformatted text preview: silver paint as the conductive electrodes, and a resistor box with eight resistors. A power supply is used as the source of power. Three different selected patterns are used to determine the equipotential lines at a certain voltage. From the equipotential lines, the lines of force can be found which can then be used to find the field strength at certain points....
