2: F 1/19 lab, 4: M 1/22 lab

Today, after a brief daily quiz, we'll get data for the next formal lab - an investigation into multiple capacitors.  If you finish taking data early, you can collaboratively plan our your lab report, and if you finish that, you can start the problems in the next post.  

Handout:  Series & Parallel Capacitor Lab
Homework: Circuits Exam on Tuesday, January 30th.  Lab due Friday, January 26th. Check out this derivation for series & parallel capacitor equations to verify your findings.  Please try to finish it or at least make some headway on it tonight.
