Thomas Ranson, Ian Metzger Phys. 212 9/9/14 Dr. Forrey Experiment A: Electric Field Plotting I For step 2 in the experiment the objective was to plot the field lines amongst a distribution of three charges. The charges in this circumstance were two positive charges, +6 and +3, and one negative charge -2. The accuracy in this step was fairly good in that the field lines drawn resembled the lines rendered by the program. That being said however, or lines were not completely accurate. Placement of lines and their paths were skewed to that of the program rendered drawing. Similarly in step three, the objective was to find the distance to which the electric field was zero amongst two charges. After completing the given problem from the lab the distance was determined theoretically to be 3.0 cm. After experimentally finding the distance using the program, the results were very close to our theoretical findings. In step four the challenge was to accurately determine the location of two charges using only electric field lines. In this step the larger the field lines the closer the charge would be. Once the charges were found, the charge could be found by using E=kq/(r^2). This formula allowed for the use of the electric field magnitude multiplied by the distance from the charge. With k being a constant the charges were found to be +4 and -2. Using the program was very helpful in determining the nature of electric fields for point charges. This experiment demonstrated Coulombs law, specifically the nature of the relationship between electric field and the distance from the charge. Knowing the relationship between these two variables allows for the finding of a point where the electric field is equal to zero.
