• ## Lab 1: Static Electric Charge

An exploration of the world of static electricity.
• ## Lab 2: Electrostatic Potential

We use measurements of electric potential between two cylindrical conductors to determine the radial dependence of an electric field with cylindrical symmetry.
• ## Lab 3: Capacitors

We explore properties of capacitance in a static circuit, including the dependence of capacitance on the geometry of the conductors, the energy stored in the electric field, and the effect of the presence of a dielectric.
• ## Lab 4: DC Circuits

We use properties of resistors in series and parallel and Kirchhoff's rules to analyze DC networks, including power supplied by a battery and emitted by light bulbs.
• ## Lab 5: RC Circuits

We have a look at the time evolution of a circuit where the charge on a capacitor is drained-off through a resistor.
• ## Lab 6: Magnetism

We bring together tools we have learned from mechanics, magnetism, and graphical data analysis to compute the Earth's magnetic field strength, using a very simple apparatus.
• ## Lab 7: Electromagnetic Induction

We examine Faraday's law using a coil through which we pass a time-varying current (producing a time-varying magnetic field), and a second coaxial coil in which we measure the induced emf.
• ## Lab 8: Inductance

We measure the voltage as a function of time through an inductor in a circuit with resistance, and use a best-fit graph to determine its inductance.
