After Hiking… Be animal Lover eeling ko may gumagaya sa akin?? zzzzz…… Ikaw ba ang nawawala kong kapatid? Nilalamig na talga ako Enjoy ko to,, doing with my friends yat na rin sa wakas. .

Abstract.   The Ohm’s Law states that voltage is proportional to current, at a certain  resistance. These three variables were obtained in a basic dc connection, parallel and series. By using an ammeter and a  VOM, the current flow at each point in the resistor, the voltage, and also the totality of the values was obtained. The set-up   is arranged in such a way that three resistor is present. At each point, the three variables were determined. It is then   compared with the computed value which uses the total sum. The relationship of voltage, resistance and current were   obtained in this experiment. It is found out that for a series connection, the current is constant while for a parallel   connection, it is the voltage. For a series connection, voltage and resistance is summative. On the other hand, for parallel   connection, current is summative, while the resistance is the sum of its reciprocals raised to -1. As we compare the   experimental and computed data, the difference was 13.8% and 8.03%, respectively for series and parallel connection. INTRODUCTION Electricity is a major part of our  everyday lives which is usually taken for granted. We  don’t usually realize how dependent we are on electrical  energy until we have a power outage. Like any other  commercial   technology,   it   can   be   understood   if   one  starts with some basic concepts which is the purpose of  this experiment. Electricity  is the flow of electrical charges between two  points. Most of our everyday applications involve the flow  of electrical charges through a closed loop of electrical  elements called a  circuit . Electrical energy sources exist  which can provide charge flow continuously in a given  direction   through   a   circuit   ( direct   current   or   dc )   or  alternating   directions   at   a   well   defined   frequency  ( alternating current or ac ). The simplest circuit, and best  place to begin the study of electricity, is a dc circuit
