Introduction
In 1831, Michael Faraday discovered that he could create a current using magnets in a magnetic field. His
discoveries paved the way for the creation of things like generators and transformers. The purpose of
this experiment is to observe the
Specific Heat of Metals
Introduction
When studying the concepts of heat and specific heat we can use the Equation 1
Equation 1
Q=mcT
Where Q is heat, m is mass, c is specific heat and
T
is change in temperature (Tf Ti). The solution
to Equation 1 would t
Introduction
Capacitors consist of two metal plates separated by an insulator, which is called a dielectric. If there is a
potential difference between the two plates, they will acquire equal and opposite chargers. The
magnitude of each charge will be dir
Heat Engines and Temperature Difference
Introduction
A heat engine uses the temperature difference between a hot reservoir and a cold reservoir to
do work. Usually the temperature of the reservoir remains constant regardless of the amount of heat

Measuring charge to mass ratio for an electron
Introduction
In 1897, at Cambridge University in England, JJ Thomson studied the rays emanating from the cathode of
the Cathode Ray Tube. He measured the ratio of charge to mass of electrons which the rays we
Ohms Law
Introduction
The purpose of this experiment was to see if the closed circuits obeyed Ohms Law. To see if they
followed Ohms law we will use four circuits each with a fixed resistance, and in order to conclude that
they obey Ohms law we must obser
