Question 1. Adjusting the slide on the left changes the voltage of the battery connected to

the capacitor. Does the capacitor have the same voltage as the battery? Explain.

(Use the voltage probes to directly measure the voltage of the capacitor.)

Question 2. What does changing the battery voltage do to the capacitance of the capacitor,

its voltage or the amount of charge on the plates? Explain.

Question 3. Give the battery a voltage of 1.0 V and leave it connected to the capacitor. How

are the voltage, capacitance and amount of charge on the capacitor affected

when the plate area is changed? Does anything remain constant? Explain.

Question 4. Give the battery a voltage of 1.0 V before disconnecting it from the capacitor.

How are the voltage, capacitance and amount of charge on the capacitor affected

when the plate area is changed? Does anything remain constant? How is this

situation different than having the battery connected to the capacitor? Explain.
