PURPOSE: To determine the relationship between current and voltage in ohmic material, as well as characterize the two types of resistors, such as series and parallel. THEORY: When voltage is applied across a material, then al current is proportional to the voltage, and the resistance is what is obtained. (Ohm) R= V/I (volts/amp) Resistors in series connection are connected from “head to tail”, and is calculated by the equivalent of the resistance.
R s = R 1 + R 2 Resistors in parallel connection are connected from “head to head and tail to tail” and is calculated by the equivalent in the resistance in parallel connection> R p = R 1 R 2 R 1 + R 2 PROCEDURE:

Unformatted text preview: -4 resistors w/ R = 100Ω- 1 digital multmeter- Power amplifier-Interface and computer • Set up the connections in the circuit as shown in the figures to determine the resistance. • Determine the resistance of the set ups shown mathematically. • Draw a graph and perform analysis. CONCLUSION: In this lab we concluded that resistance is the ratio of applied voltage and the resulting current. This lab helped to understand the sum of the voltages in series and parallel resistors. Voltage is also proportional to the current when it is applied to a material, such as a resistor. Different connections, such as series and parallel, can lead to different voltages according to the sum of the voltages.0...
