Unformatted text preview: to the theoretical calculations. From these values, Resistors 2 and 4 could be calculated, the currents through their associated branches, and the power absorbed by the resistors. The resistance values can be seen Table I and the power absorbed by those resistors 2 and 4 are in Appendix A, Part 5. The difference in power obtained by the different method can be explained by a couple of reasons. Each power result differed by 20 micro amps in R2 and the power results for R4 had a difference in 20 micro amps on two of the equations but the third resulted in 240 to 260 micro amps. Human error, meter error, and the actual resistance of the resistors add up to affect this difference in using Ohms Law to derive the orther power equations....
