Electric Field Mapping
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 of the electric field lines in each configuration.Preview Download

The meter includes all functions and ranges needed for most introductory lab work.
Allows students to map both the potentials and the electric fields around any two-dimensional charged conductors.
Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
