6. Without moving the fixed probe, move the hand probe about the mylar sheet, finding a point on the mylar sheet that produces a zero reading on the galvanometer. Mark this corresponding point on your graph paper.7. Without moving the fixed point, repeat step 6 (above). Mark these readings as well when the galvanometer reads zero. 8. Connect these equipotential points as recorded on your graph paper with smooth curve.

9. Reposition the fixed probe on other positions on the mylar film and then repeat step 4 – 8 above until a serious of equipotential lines are produced.10. Now draw the electric field lines, remembering that the field lines are perpendicular to the equipotential lines. 11. Repeat steps 1-10 as you did for the parallel plates, but this time using the mylar conducting sheet with circular shaped electrodes. Questions:1. a. Define the term “electric field”.
b. Define the term “electric potential”.
c. Define the term “electric potential difference”.
i2. a. How does the electric field between two parallel plates differ from those between two spherical ones?
b. Explain the difference between electric potential and electric potential difference.
