Intro To Circuits and Meters

Lab Preformed: 2 September 2008
Report Submitted: 9 September 2008
The goal of this lab was to gain basic knowledge and experience with circuits and equipment
used in the laboratory. Data was taken for resistance, voltage, and current to understand circuits
and how to quantify them.
Electrical circuits are comprised of separate components such as batteries, wires, switches,
resistors, and light bulbs. The battery is a supply of energy or power, the wires are the path and
carrier of the energy to the other components of the system. Along the wires, resistors restrict the
flow of power in the system. Using a DMM, the components can be quantified in (volts,
resistance, and amps).
Various batteries of different power output are set out at the lab. Using the DMM, measure the
amps produced by each battery.
A board with various sized and rating resistors are set out at the lab. Using the DMM, measure
the resistance in ohms of each resistor.
