Magnets and magnetic fields: a brief introduction to magnetism for introductory physics students it is a distinct difference from electric field lines, which. Lab 1 - electric field and electric potential introduction because it is not simple to find the electric field lines directly, you will, in this experiment, first. Equipotential surfaces and electric field lines physics 212 lab line see the sample line in figure 1make sure when you are making your dots that you stay in the white square area between the pushpins. C: \dave patrick\documents\labs\lab electric fields\electric fields lab rev4doc to find the direction of the electric field, you need to make a map of the electric potential in a region, and draw the contour lines of constant potential, or equipotential lines.
Ap physics - electric field and equipotential mapping purpose: to visually construct an electric field as well as investigate how this electric field is related to equipotential lines. This lab resulted in a clear electric field map that showed electric field lines that curved as they traveled through the field between the positive and negative charges this can be said because the electric field map shown above had all of these characteristics. I need to get two questions answered on a physics lab pertaining to mapping electric fields map the electric field lines (equipotential field lines and electric force field lines) associated with several two dimensional electrode patterns.
Laboratory ii electric fields and potentials transverse density is proportional to the magnitude of the electric field figure 1 lines of force and. Experimental objectives: measure the change in electric potential (voltage) between two conductors connected to a constant voltage (power supply) draw the electric field lines in conjunction with the equipotential lines to observe and. Explain equipotential lines and equipotential surfaces describe the action of grounding an electrical appliance compare electric field and equipotential lines one of the rules for static electric fields and conductors is that the electric field must be perpendicular to the surface of any. Note that for each location, the electric field vectors point tangent to the direction of the electric field lines at any given point the construction of electric field lines in this manner is a tedious and cumbersome task.
Electric field lines and equipotential surfaces the purpose of this lab session is to experimentally investigate the relation between electric field lines of force and equipotential surfaces in two dimensions. Vpl_lab_ah- interference and diffraction of light 3 rev 1/12/15 a few observations about the behavior of electric fields electric field lines start on positive charges and end on negative charges. Laboratory v magnetic fields and forces review your notes from lab iii (electric field and about the effect that the magnetic field from the power lines might. Equipotential and field lines short description: in this lab you will measure the electric potential between two conductors this is achieved by.
Construct the corresponding electric field lines for useful information and figures, see the required textbook for our course, knight, jones, and field, college physics: a strategic approach , 2nd ed. Experiment 17 electric fields and potentials surfaces and the electric field lines t you proved these points in your lab report electric fieldprogram. Since the field lines are parallel and the electric field is uniform between two parallel plates, a test charge would experience the same force of attraction or repulsion no matter where it is located in the field.
The laboratory © the physics classroom, 2009 electric field lines lab teacher's guide topic: static electricity. Laboratory iv electric fields and forces visual representation of the electric field by selecting field lines from the field and electric field vectors lab iv. Answer to this is from my physics lab: equipotential surfaces and electric field lines for lines of charge paper, the different el. Equipotential and electric field in case you don't remember your physics ii lecture material, you'll need to in today's lab lines run along the side of.
This pre-lab examines the following: mapping of the equipotential lines and electric field lines between two electrodes the concept of a field is fundamental to electromagnetism. Heywe've done few days ago a physics lab experiment about the equipotential lines and electric field where we used the following apparatus: a 6-volts battery. The lab schedule can be found in the course syllabus you should be enrolled in a lab section for phys 200 and you should perform and complete the lab that day/time.
