Lab 1 – Ohm’s Law Kevin Lam Alexander Galloway J.D White Due Date: January 29, 2008 Abstract We started by measuring the voltage and current in a series circuit to determine the relationship between the electrical current flowing through a circuit element and the voltage applied. Using our results, it supports Ohm’s Law, which is I = V/R for the voltages applied to both resistors. The law shows a linear relationship between current and voltage, our data for the light bulb shows that the voltage for our light bulb increases exponentially, as the current increases. This is due to the dramatic warmth of the light bulb, and the temperature change as more voltage increases in the light bulb.

Introduction Ohm’s law is the relationship between currents and voltages in a conductor. It shows that the potential difference of voltage, across an ideal conductor is proportional to the current through it. The formula of Ohm’s Law is V = I R, in which R is resistance. V is the potential difference between two points and I is the current flowing through the resistance.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
