I. Introduction In this experiment, measurements of three different resistors were taken at different voltages. All values for this experiment were taken with the use of a multi-meter. Resistance, voltage and amperage were all measured with the DMM (Digital Multi-meter). Using this information voltage, amperage, and power were calculated using Ohm’s Law. Definitions used to determine values include current, voltage, resistance and power. Electric current is the flow of electric charge from one point to another. Electric voltage is the “potential difference” between two points, and is defined as the work or energy required to move a charge of one coulomb form one point to another. Electric resistance is the “constant of proportionality” when the voltage across a circuit element is a linear function of the current through the circuit element. Electric power, the rate at which work is performed, is dissipated in a resistor in the form of heat. Equations used in this experiment were:
