Description

This lab is designed to have students investigate the different changes that could be made to an air filled capacitor and the results that occur because of these changes. Students can vary the gap between the plates, the size of the plates, and the voltage across the plates. They can measure the charge stored on the plates, the energy stored on the plates, and the electric field between the plates. Students can calculate the capacitance by dividing the charge by the voltage.
