Measuring Current

Use an ammeter to measure the current through the lamp. Draw a circuit diagram with the ammeter connected correctly.

How to set up an… Ammeter A

Measuring Current – Series Circuit Measure the current through: 1.The Battery 2.Bulb 1 3.Bulb 2

Measuring Current – Parallel Circuit Measure the current through: 1.The Battery 2.Bulb 1 3.Bulb 2

Measuring Voltage

Use a voltmeter to measure voltage across the lamp. Draw a circuit diagram with the voltmeter connected correctly

How to set up a… Voltmeter V

Effect of Number of Cells on Voltage?

Measuring Voltage – Series Circuit Measure the voltage across: 1.The Battery 2.Bulb 1 3.Bulb 2

Measuring Voltage – Parallel Circuit Measure the voltage across: 1.The Battery 2.Bulb 1 3.Bulb 2

Measuring Current and Voltage Measure the current through bulb 1 and the voltage across bulb 2.
