terminals. With a wire and resistor connected between the term

Lab #2: Electric Fields and Potential
Theory:
Electrical forces and potentials are similar to gravitational forces and potential energy. A
mass will have the same potential energy at all points where the height from the ground level is
same. Therefore, ho

Lab #6: RC Circuits
Theory:
Capacitors are things placed in circuits that store charge. The charges produce a
voltage difference V, given by q = CVc. Capacitance has units of coulomb/volt and this is
referred to as Farad. There is a switch on or near the

Lab #10: Interference
Theory:
Wave interference is the phenomenon that occurs when two waves meet while
traveling along the same medium. Because light is composed of waves, it is possible to
observe interference, just as for ripples on a pond. Constructiv
