Method 1 Extrapolation from Graph The balancing voltage required for a plate separation of 50.0 mm can be found by reading up from 50.0 mm on the x-axis to the line of the graph and then left to the y-axis. The balancing voltage is 5.8 × 103 V Method 2 Numerical Analysis V so V = (slope)d d V = (1.15 × 105 V/m)(5.0 × 10−2 m) slope = V = 5.8 × 103 V 14 Special Case – Use of Graphing Calculator • Provide a graph of the balancing voltage as a function of the plate separation, with the manipulated variable on the horizontal axis. Balancing Voltage as a Function of Plate Separation y x: [8.7, 37.5, 1] x y: [0.9089, 4.7011, 1] x-axis is plate separation in mm (or 10 −3 m) y-axis is balancing voltage in 10 3 V • Calculate the slope of the graph and describe the physical quantity or quantities this slope represents. L1 L2 = = plate separation, d, in mm (or 10 −3 m) balancing voltage, V, in 103 V Using the linear regression function on the calculator (ax + b) L1, L2, Y gives slope = 1.16 × 105 V /m The slope is the electric field between the plates or The slope is the gravitational force (weight) of the mass divided by the charge on the object Notes 1. the definition (and units) of L1 and L2 and the order they are used in the linear regression must be consistent • Using the slope, or another suitable averaging technique, determine the magnitude of the charge on the suspended mass. Same as given in regular sample solution • Determine the balancing voltage required when the plates are separated by 50.0 mm. By extending window to include x = 50.0 mm and then using the trace function, the balancing voltage is 5.8 × 103 V 15...
