Was the thermal energy gained by the water greater, the same as, or less than the electrical energy dissipated by the resistor? 8. The heating resistor is rated at 10 ohms and 1 watt. What percentage of the power rating was used during this activity? Why didn’t the resistor burn up? 9. What are some factors that could account for the percent difference between the experimental and the accepted values for the electrical equivalent of heat? Phys320 Lab Page 3 Experiment 2...

What students are saying

• 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.
