Purpose: The purpose of this experiment was to see how different variables such as distance, filters, and shading can affect the output of photovoltaic cells. What we were trying to achieve was to experiment with all the different variables to see how it can fluctuate energy levels such as wattage, current (ampere), and voltage. Materials: Photovoltaic Cell Multimeter Color Filters Measuring tape Desk lamp Electrical wire (alligator clips) Method: Step 1: Constructing the Photovoltaic cell system o Connected the PV cell to the multimeter Attached the red and black alligator clips to the corresponding wires of the PV cell Connected the red wire to VΩMA terminal on the multimeter Connected the black wire to the COM terminal on the multimeter o Exposed the PV cell to the desk lamp to get current and voltage reading.

    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.
