Experiment 16- Ohm's Law Brianna Przybysz February 7, 2008 Abstract The purpose of this laboratory was to examine the relationship of how resistances add together based on the structure of the circuit (series or parallel), according to the theory of Ohm's law. In this experiment we connected the resistors in two different manners, once in a parallel structure, and secondly in a series structure. We then measured the amounts of currents that flowed through each circuit and recorded the measurements. Through our experiment we confirmed the fact that the relationship between current and potential difference are directly proportional. We also confirmed the known theory that current flows from positive to negative in a circuit. Our data coincided with Ohm's law, which states that Voltage is equal to resistance times the current.

    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.
