Electric Field and Electric Potential Prelab Assignment
4-digit Code Number:_______________________________
- Write Coulomb's Law in equation form and explain what the equation means.
Do not simply translate the symbols from math into English, but rather
explain the content of the law.
- What is an electric field line?
- What are equipotential surfaces? Are they necessarily physical surfaces?
- Why must electric field lines be perpendicular to equipotential surfaces?
- For this experiment, the exact voltage supplied to the circuit is not
important. Why does it not matter?
