Abstract: In the following lab experiment, we executed a calibration of ammeter and
resistor, which indicated the difference between circuits in different settings such as series, parallel, and a combination of both series and parallel. It was conceivable to calculate the corresponding resistance of these circuits with adequate precision by using the correct equipment. Ohm’s law defined the relation between voltage, resistance and current. The percentage difference in the resistors as due to the wear and tear. Although the measuring devices had some inconsistency, we were still able to calculate the equivalent resistance using the Ohm’s law with very low percent differences. Introduction: The essential formula used in this experiment is the Ohm’s law, which defines the relation between current, voltage & resistance. This experiment was circulated into three parts; (1) resistors in parallel circuit (2), resistors in series circuit (3), resistors in combination of both. The foremost goal of this experiment is to examine the circuit theoretically and then get the predictions experimentally using the Ohm’s law. The following is the equation for the Ohm’s law Resistors can be placed in different settings such as series and parallel or a mixture of both. For the series circuit, the equivalent resistance is equal to: For parallel circuit, the resistances add as reciprocals: Apparatus: The following apparatus used for this experiment: A: AC/DC Electronics Laboratory EM-8656 This apparatus could be used for different purposes for learning about the electricity. This apparatus consists of component springs for holding circuit components, light bulbs, sockets, coil, battery holder, banana jacks, iron core & potentiometer.
