Title Determinine Electric Field Relationships
Description Students set up a variety of charge distributions and measure the electric field strength at different distances from the distribution. They will experimentally determine the 1/r^2 relationship for a point charge, 1/r for an "infinite" line of charges, and 1/r^3 relationship for a dipole.
