Introduction Objective: This experiment is focused on slowing the rate of arrangement passing arrange circuits. First, a circuit is an electrical device that allows charged particles, in this case electrons, to pass through conductors to produce electricity such as light in a light bulb. Within this experiment, we will compare the measured resistance (equivalent resistance) of a manufactured resistor and compare it to printed/expected resistance, in addition to the combining them into different arrangements such as series and parallel. Theory: During this experiment, we will be testing Ohm’s Law by measuring and comparing the resistance of arrangement in different arrangement and voltages to by increasing the voltage, and measuring the resistance. However, to compare the measured resistance to the calculated resistance we first must use the equation V=RI (1) where the V represents the potential drop across a conductor, measured in Volts (V); and R represents the resistance of the conductor, measured in Ohms (Ω) and lastly the I represents the current in the conductor that is measure in amperes, more commonly known as Amps (A). When rearranged we can derived the equation for a resistor in a circuit. Keeping mind that we are also measuring resistors in different arrangements, there are also two different equations to measures parallel and series arrangements.

    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.
