Converging Lens Lab
Purpose: The purpose of this lab is to find the focal length of an converging lens and to find the
relationship between 1/di versus 1/do graph.
Hypothesis: We believe that the graph of 1/di versus 1/do will be a linear line with a nega
JJ THOMSONS: CATHODES RAY EXPERIMENT
Purpose
The objective of this lab is to calculate the
Q: M ratio of an electron in a cathode ray
using J.J. Thomsons Cathode ray experiment.

ratio that I will obtain in my lab should be
ELECTROSTATIC CHARGE ON A BALLON
Purpose
The objective of this lab is to calculate the charge of the balloon when rubbed with a fur
cloth. By doing so, we will determine whether it follows Coulombs law or not.
Hypothesis
I think that the lab will follow C
