Multimeter Measure the value of the following in the correct units of measurement. 9V battery- 1K resistor- 3.3K resistor- 10K resistor- Variable 50K- three different positions 1. 2. 3. Test the following and record what happened Wire Battery strap LED Switch
Complete Experiment #1: The Light Bulb Parts Needed: Essentials of how the circuit works: What happened when you reduces the resistance in the circuit? This circuit could be used for What parts can be removed and the circuit still work?
Define Ohm’s Law: Resistance: Draw a sample resistor and how the color bands represent values. In Experiment #2, when resistance goes up the brightness goes ________. When the resistance goes down the brightness goes_______________.
Resistors in Series Define Series Resistors: Formula for calculating resistance in series: Write out the math used to calculate the resistance of Experiment #3 Resistors in Parallel Define parallel Resistors: Formula for calculating resistance in parallel: Write out the math used to calculate the resistance of Experiment #4
Capacitors Define: Capacitors: A/C: D/C: Capacitance is measured in ______________. Formula for calculating capacitance in series: Formula for calculating capacitance in parallel:
