Experiment 0: Graphite Resistance and Voltage Shayan Rizvi Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Connecticut, Storrs, Connecticut 06269 Resistance and voltage was measured across various shapes and distances using the graphite from a pencil. Using a multi meter we were able to calculate the specific voltages and resistance levels at various points in the shapes. These readings followed a specific trend depending on units of length (distance and width) and frequency of data points (number of lines) from a stable point on the shape. The resistance (kΩ) decreased with increasing width (0.5- 3.0 a.u.) and number of lines (1-7). As we measured points further away from the stable point the voltage decreased (0.758 – 0.332 V). Introduction. Graphite was used as a means to measure resistivity and voltage. Graphite is not your average conductor, it is a semi metal. As an example a real world application of a graphite conductor could be an arc lamp electrode. We will be applying graphite to shapes and surfaces so we can then test their resistivity. We will be testing its resistivity at various lengths and widths. We will also be testing for different voltage readings at different points within a surface. Procedure. With all of our figures/surfaces we shaded them in with graphite (a pencil was used) and we tested for the resistivity with a multi meter.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
