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

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
