Do NOT write on these sheets or take them with you! The next class needs them too! PHYS-1200 PHYSICS II SPRING 2006 Class 5 Activity: Simple Circuits RESULTS In this experiment, you will investigate the equivalent resistance of several combinations of resistors. You have been supplied with three resistors. Set the multimeter as an ohmmeter, and measure the resistance of each of the resistors. On your paper, record your results as shown below. To help keep track of the resistors, call the two brown resistors R 1 and R 2 , and call the one with colored bands R 3 . Record the resistance of each on your paper as follows: R 1 = 50.5 k = 50.5 ×10 3 R 2 = 50.1 k = 50.1 ×10 3 R 3 = 69.0 k = 69.0 ×10 3 Now, connect the resistors as shown in each diagram and determine the equivalent resistance by calculation and by measurement. Then record the results on your paper, arranged as shown below. DO NOT WRITE ON THIS PAPER! Calculated
