PURPOSE: To gain familiarity with the test equipment and to demonstrate the usefulness of Thevenin’s Theorem PROCEDURE: Resistance to Ground 1. Obtain the correct amount of resistors to construct models of Fig. 2 and 3 2. Connect one end of a resistor to ground. If necessary align resistors in series or in parallel depending on the figure. Connect the other end to ground or to another spot on the bread board depending on the figure. 3. Use multimeter to measure resistance to ground. Voltage to Ground 1. Obtain the correct amount of resistors to construct models of Fig. 4 2. Connect yellow wire to power source, and put other end into top part of bread board (this is your source). 3. Connect one resistor to ground, and configure resistors in series to voltage source 4. Use multimeter to measure voltage at all nodes.

OBSERVATIONS: In this experiment, the measured values were very accurate compared to those calculated in the pre-lab. The multimeter capabilities made it very easy to analyze the required material. The multimeter would move from V-mV on its own when the information was appropriate. It was important to realize where the last resistor and the first resistor in the
