Unformatted text preview: ARSC 010 October 24 2007 Mini-Lab Report for Lab 6 Circuits, Ohm’s Law and Capacitance 1. Series Circuits and Ohm’s Law Figure 1.1 2.) Parallel circuits [source: ARSC 010. Lab 6 Procedures. 2007] Drawing with Symbols: Figure 1.1 Legend = Resistor [ohms] 2Ω VM = Voltage [volts] = Voltmeter [measures] = Switch 2Ω Ohm’s Law Calculations for Figure 1.1 Circuit: V= 12v I= ?amps R= 2Ω + 2Ω + 2Ω = 6Ω To find the current in the circuit above: V=IR therefore: I= V/R And given the information above: I= 12v/6 Ω I= 2 amps Theoretical and Actual Measurements: In this situation, or any lab experiment, the actual measurements may be different from the theoretical ones because theoretical data does not take into account human error, faulty equipment, environmental conditions, etc. Theoretical data, unlike experimental or actual data, reflects what should result if everything occurs without any error. The actual data is what is collected during an experiment. This data reflects the experiment as a whole and the data is representative of all the variables, including the negative...
