Title Capacitor Lab: Basics: Inquiry into Capacitor Design
Description Learning Goals: Students will be able to: ● Identify the variables that affect the capacitance and how each affects the capacitance. ● Determine the relationships between charge, voltage, and stored energy for a capacitor. ● Relate the design of the capacitor system to its ability to store energy. ● Relate the design of the capacitor system to capacitance value with known resistance. ● As per normal lab results/reports – students will show competency in o Practical mastery by: o Follows written procedures o Applies investigative approaches and methods when using instruments and equipment o Safely uses a range of practical equipment and materials o Makes and records observations o Researches, references and reports
