this process was repeated and the charges recorded were -34.8 nC and -49.2 nC, respectively. Part 6: m = 2.4x10^-6 kg r = 0.5 cm L = 5 cm q = 0.47 nC Fe = 1.176x10^-6 k = 1.3x10^8 T = 2.35x10^-5 % of accepted value = 1.4 % See Figure 1 for Free Body Diagram Discussion/Conclusion: In Part 1, the PVC rod was rubbed and the charged end was slowly lowered into the can without touching the sides and a charge of -44 was

recorded. The number of excess electrons on the strip was recorded at 2.75x10^11 electrons. This is because when the PVC rod is rubbed with a paper towel it is left with a negative charge on it, having excess electrons. This was repeated with the nylon rod and a charge of 72 was recorded. The number of deficit electrons on the strip was also recorded at 1.10x10^10 electrons. This is because when the nylon rod is rubbed with a paper towel it is left with a positive charge on it, having a deficiency of electrons. In part 2, the assumption made in the experiment that the charge placed inside the can is the same regardless of how deeply the object is placed in the can is true. when a pith ball was charged up and lowered into the can ¼, ½, ¾ and almost all the way down. The charges were recorded respectively at -9.9 e, -10 e, -10.1 e and -10.3 e, which are almost all virtually the same. The pith ball was charged by induction, which is done by bringing a negative strip close to a neutral object, polarizing the object. The object is then ground and when the strip and ground connection is removed a positive charged object remains. In part 3, the negative charge is growing because we were adding electrons on the charge placed inside the can. The can was charged by conduction, which is done by bringing a negatively
