This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

1.Using the information from “Think About This,” hypothesize the relationship between voltage and current.
2.Analyze a single resistor circuit: Select a resistance value of your choice between .2-Ohms and .5-Ohms by adjusting the slider on the right side labeled resistanceSelect a voltage value of 0.0 by adjusting the slider on the right side labeled voltageRead the current (Amps) from the ammeter on the lower left connected to the pinwheel. Record the values in Table 1Select a new voltage and read the current. Record these values in Table1. Repeat for three more trials. Using Graphical Analysis, construct a graph of your data with Voltage on the y-axis and Current on the x-axis. . . . Voltage calculated (Volts) Current (amps) 1 0.0 0.0 2 1.68 4.0 3 2.88 9.0 44.0811.05 6.016.0Resistance Value used .4 Ohms
Analysis: Write a three-part conclusion. Remember to include a discussion of your hypothesis, how your selected resistance and slope value compare, and discussion of any possible sources of error.
