In this particular lab, one must start by cutting a piece of white paper, electrically conducting paper, and carbon paper in similar dimensions of 8”x6”. Then place the white, carbon, then electrically conducting paper on the surface of the modified 2-D version of an electrolytic tank and then follow figure B in Appendix A to set up the rest. Using the digital voltmeter one can determine the charge over the electrically charged paper while using the connection wire probes to indent a mark for 5 different Voltage outputs (will be later used to analyze the electric field). Next one can determine potential gradients by using the 1cm distanced two-pronged probe with the voltmeter, placing the negative lead down and finding the values for the positive prong until the maximum 1 http://www.physicsclassroom.com/class/circuits/u9l1c.cfm
