Do NOT write on these sheets or take them with you! The next class needs them too! PHYS-1200 PHYSICS II SPRING 2006 Class 4 Activity: Current and Resistance RESULTS This experiment has two parts. In part I you will investigate the electrical properties of a light bulb and a commercial resistor. In part II, you will examine the temperature dependence of resistance. Part I. Ohmic vs. Non-Ohmic Resistors Equipment: ---- DC Power supply & volt meter (source of the emf) ---- Multimeter used as an ammeter ---- four different resistors ---- three banana connector cables ---- Liquid Nitrogen and Styrofoam cup 1) Connect the circuit using the light bulb as the resistor as shown below. E is a source of emf, the DC Power supply; it provides a potential difference, or voltage, to the circuit. A voltmeter is already built into the power source to measure the potential difference at its output. A is the multimeter, set to operate as an ammeter, and wired in series so all the current flows through it. R is the light bulb.
