1.
Report your leastsquaresfit values for both the equivalent circuit resistance and R
68
in industrystandard form (uncertainty rounded to one digit, unless that digit is one, in
which case round the uncertainty to two digits; the main value then rounded to the
same place value as the uncertainty).

2.
For the linear circuit, fill in the V, I, and R = V/I values for each of the three resistors in
Sketch #1 where indicated. With the original two pairs of I,V values, you will be able to fill
in the I,V values for each of the three resistors.
Then you will be able to calculate the
resistance of each of the three resistors used in the circuit from the corresponding I,V data
using Ohm’s law.
(Some of these I,V values you have measured directly.
The values not
measured you can deduce from the set of measured values.
