Name: Jason Vazquez Partner: Xing Lin TA: Faisal Yaqoob Experiment #3 Ohm’s Law Equations: (1) V = I x R (2) R Series = R 1 + R 2 (3) 1/R Parallel = 1/R 1 + 1/R 2 Procedure: One- Resistor Setup: Connect power to the 0-12V terminals, with the voltage turned to a minimum to start with. The multimeter measuring current should be on the 20mA scale, with the voltage turned to minimum to start with. Using excel and plot the voltage as a function of the current in amplitude. Using the slope of the graph determine the average resistance. Read the resistor code and determine the average resistance of the resistor. Notice the consistency of resistance. Light Bulb: Perform the same procedure, however removing the resistor, add the light bulb. Again graph at various voltages correlating with the amplitude. Series Resistors: Set up a resistor circuit utilizing two resistors in series. Perform the same experiment as previous; however, do note the difference in range and again check for consistency and
