Bell Ringer: Charge Decay

Published on 09/05/2010

Activity Overview

Students use a precompiled data set to explore the process of discharging of charge over time and compare that with an exponential decay model.

Key Steps

  • Image

    Students use a precompiled data set to examine how an induced charge changes over time.

    They then examine data showing how the charge on an object changed over time.

    Finally, they use the regression tool to determine the best-fit equation for the data set.
