Theory What is the Ohms Law Ohms law States that current through a resistor is directly proportional to the applied voltage V and inversely proportional to the resistance R of the resistanceOhms law States that current through a resistor is directly proportional to the applied voltage V and inversely proportional to the resistance R of the resistance Ohms law is not a fundamental law of natureOhms law is not a fundamental law of nature An empirical relationship that is valid for certain materialAn empirical relationship that is valid for certain material at constant temperatureat constant temperature Electric current I=Q/T Ohms Law I=V/R

Calculation and Analysis: 1.Use data from Table 1 and plot a graph of the current I us the voltage V for both values of the resistance. Determine the slope of the graph. From the slope of the graph find the resistance using » R=1/slope and compare it to the actual value of resistance by calculating a percent difference. – – 2.Use data from Table 2 and plot a graph of the current I versus the 1/R. Determine the slope of the graph. Compare the slope of the graph with the output voltage of power supply by computing a percent difference. – – 3.Resistors in series. – – Using the resistors value compute the equivalent resistance R of the circuit by using equation (9). Compare this value with your experimental measurement by finding a percent difference. – – Using the measured voltages compute the total voltage V by using equation (5). Compare this value with your experimental measurement by finding a percent difference.
