Jacob Murphy Reed Iacarella Katie Shandri Sect: A2 Due: 3/27/08 Electricity with the Genecon Purpose: To see the difference in effort to rotate the handle of the Genecon between air, bulb A, and bulb B. Procedure: 1. Rotate the handle of the Genecon with nothing attached to the leads and not how much effort is required to do so. 2. Assemble a circuit using the “A” bulb in the kit, wires with alligator clips and the Genecon. Note the effort needed to turn the handle. 3. Replace the “A” bulb with the “B” bulb and again note the effort required to turn the handle. 4. Rank air, bulb A, and bulb B on a scale of 1 to 3. 1 being the least powerful and 3 being the most powerful. 5. Test to see if it matter which way the handle is rotated on the Genecon. Observations/Data: It took a lot more effort with bulb A than it did with air. Bulb B

Unformatted text preview: required more effort than bulb A. Air was rated 1, bulb A was rate 2, bulb B was rated 3. Air needed had the least power and bulb B had the most power. Questions: Is air an insulator or a conductor? Air is an insulator. Is the effort required to rotate the handle greater or less in this case? The effort required is more to rotate the handle with bulb A than air. Does it matter in which direction the handle of the Genecon is rotated? No it does not matter which way the handle is rotated. Generalizations: Air took had least amount of power and bulb B took the most amount of power. It does not matter which way the handle of the Genecon is rotated. To make this test better you could have a more bulbs to test so that the people doing the experiment would have to pay very close attention to the effort needed....
