EQUIPOTENTIAL AND ELECTRIC FIELD LINES
Electric field lines are always perpendicular to an equipotential surface. An equipotential surface
is one on which all points have the same electric potential.
CAPACITORS IN SERIES AND PARALLEL
In this experiment we constructed capacitors in series and parallel on the circuit board. We
Measured the equivalent capacitances for different combination of capacit

Upon completion of this lab, we investigate the nature of charging an object and verify the
concepts of electrostatic interactions. This includes electrostatic charging methods: by fricti
EQUIPOTENTIAL AND ELECTRIC FIELD LINES
Electric field lines are always perpendicular to an equipotential surface. An equipotential surface
is one on which all points have the same electric potential.
