How It Works
With this kit students can map both the potentials and the electric fields around any conceivable system of two-dimensional charged conductors. The procedure is simple:
- Draw any electrode
- Plot the equipotentials
- Plot the electric field

In this lab, students use a DC power supply and semi-conductive paper to create dipole and parallel plate electrodes. Then they use the principles of electric fields and electric potential energy to determine the shape and direction...

The purpose of this qualitative activity is to introduce the students to the concept of a field and to make the idea of the electric field more concrete by examining a number of examples. A number of rules about the electric field...
