Marc Pomi 106040098 2/23/09 Lab #4 Ohm’s Law Abstract: In this experiment we will measure the current as a function of different resistors in series and parallel to establish a plot to determine the resistance applied by the ratio of R=V/I. Procedure: 1. Connect a circuit with an ampere meter in series and a voltmeter in parallel to measure the values of a resistor. 2. Measure the vales of several resistors to establish the resistance with the relation R=V/I. Questions: 1. Yes this is an important effect because the voltmeter provides some resistance. We can check by Measuring known values of resistors verse measured values. 2. 3. The resistance is about 103 ohm according to the chart. This value is within reason due to the fact the resistor was a 100 ohm resistor with ± 5% tolerance. 4. 5. The light bulb does not obey ohms law.

    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.
