Wire a "good" 6- volt battery, resistor, and a switch in a series circuit. 3. Measure the "open- circuit" voltage E of the battery. 4. Close the switch and measure the voltage Vab of the battery. 5. Calculate the current Mlowing through the circuit. 6. Repeat the measurements using a "bad" 6- volt battery. 7. Data Analysis and Results 7.1. Part #1 Present your results as follows: 1. Draw a schematic diagram of each circuit. 2. On each diagram, label all currents and voltage drops. 3. Present a table comparing theoretically and experimentally determined currents and voltage drops along with a calculation of the percent discrepancy.

Part #2 1. Draw a schematic diagram of your circuit and write down an equation stating Kirchoff's "loop" rule. 2. Solve the Kirchoff's loop rule equation for the terminal voltage . 3. State which conditions are necessary to have Vab=E, and relate this to the "open circuit" voltage of the battery. 4. Assuming that the "open circuit" voltage of the battery is equal to E, use the...

### What students are saying

• 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.
