This program investigates the idea of capacitance. It looks at how the electric potential of a metal plate changes when. ..you put electric charge on it...you alter its area....you introduce and earthed plate nearby...you alter the separation between the plate. You put measurements of charge and 'voltage' into a results table and values of capacitance are calculated. Graphs can be plotted and printed of the various variables. There is a help file written specially for this topic with instructions, advice, definitions and notes.
