Abstract

"This investigation determined the accuracy to be expected with conducting sheet analogy solutions for Laplace and Poisson equations using simple and relatively inexpensive instrumentation. Several problems were solved experimentally and compared to known theoretical solutions to check variables in the technique and the accuracy of the experimental solution. It was found that if proper procedures are followed, solutions can be obtained rather rapidly and with an error of less than 5% which compares favorably with accuracy obtained by other investigators with more complex, precise equipment"--Abstract, page 2.
