Unformatted text preview: Ω +current measurement current flow Modify the Parallel Circuit as Shown (measure the current through the 470 Ω resistor) Compute the current after you make your measurement. How close are the measured and computed results? current flow Vin=6V 470 Ω 220 Ω +current measurement Check for Conservation of Charge ~ ~ Kirchoff’s Current Law (KCL) – The algebraic sum of currents entering a node is zero. Current In = Current Out Vin=6V 470 Ω 220 Ω +I = I = more current goes through smaller resistor Electrons are like people – they follow the path of least resistance. The End...
