Day 51: Mapping Electric Potential Lab

Today, AP Physics 2 students completed the Mapping Electric Potential Lab from Vernier’s Advanced Physics Beyond Mechanics lab manual. I purchased a conductive pen this year and modified on of the conductive sheets with parallel plates to include a closed conducting surface in the middle of the sheet. The 3D and 2D potential plots captured by the students look excellent. I’m especially interested in how the one with the closed conducting surface looks.
