Unformatted text preview: Ryan Henry Circuits 7/20/10 Lab partners: Tarek Abbassi & Alvaro Sarmiento Introduction The purpose of this lab is to experiment with the variables that contribute to the operation of an electrical circuit. We will look at resistances, voltages, and currents in various kinds of circuits (series, parallel, and combination). There is no theory/ background information for this lab. Data PART 1 : RESISTANCES IN CIRCUITS SAME RESISTANCES Colors Coded Resistance Measured Resistance % Error Tolerance #1 Brown, black, red, gold 1000 994 0.6% 5% #2 1000 989 1.1% 5% #3 1000 993 0.7% 5% Series Circuit: R 12 = 1882, R 23 = 1880, R 123 = 2970 Parallel Circuit: R 12 = 496, R 23 = 495, R 123 = 331 Combination Circuit: R 1 = 994, R 23 = 495, R 123 = 1489 DIFFERENT RESISTANCES Colors Coded Resistance Measured Resistance % Error Tolerance A Brown, black, red, gold 1000 994 0.6% 5% B Red, red, red, gold 2200 2200 0% 5% C Orange, orange, red, gold 3300 3260 1.2% 5% Series Circuit: R AB = 3190, R...
