Electronics I Experiment I Thevenin’s Theorem Introduction In this lab, we tested Thevenin equivalent circuits on a breadboard to become familiar with lab equipment and confirm Thevenin’s theorem. Theory In a Thevenin equivalent circuit, any point is shown by a linear circuit with a resistor connected in series to both a voltage source and a ground. This means the value of the resistance and voltage are not dependent on each other. You can find the value of resistors in series by R T =R 1 +R 2 . You can find the value of resistors in parallel by R T =(R 1 *R 2 )/(R 1 +R 2 ). The resistance can be related to voltage and current by Ohm’s Law, given by V = I*R, where V is voltage, I is current, and R is resistance. Experiment In this experiment, we assembled resistors of both similar and different values in separate formations of series and parallel. With a digital ohmmeter, we measured the equivalent resistance at every node between the resistors.

### What students are saying

• 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.
