5.06 WANDA WIRETable 1Resistance Value used 0.27OhmsConclusionThe purpose of this experiment was to analyze the impact that one variable has on another when changed while a third variable remains constant. The three variables in this experiment were: resistance, voltage and current. The resistance was kept constant at 0.27 Ohms while the Voltage (independent variable) was manipulated and the current (dependent) values were noted down. The hypothesis of the experiment was that as the voltage increases then the current will increase too. When the results were graphed the line of best fit had a positive slope of 0. 2573 Volts/ amps. This indicates that voltage and currentare directly correlated. As a result, as voltage increases so does current. A possible source of error may be reading the ammeter wrong from the scale.
