The Physics 30 curriculum mandates several lab exercises for students. One of the more difficult of these labs to get good results with is Coulomb's Law. I will show several ways to do a Coulomb's Law experiment that are inexpensive, quantitative, and understandable to students. The questions that teachers ask of the students doing the lab can foster critical thinking and increase achievement on exams.

Barry Edgar retired from teaching after forty years (mainly physics, science, and math) with Edmonton Public Schools. His classes always had a strong lab component, which he feels develops critical thinking skills and makes the classes more enjoyable.
