calculate the resistance of a component based on the gradient of the current–potential difference graph. Questions 1 Fill in the gaps to complete the sentences. Use the words in the box to help you. ( 7 marks ) potential difference resistance voltmeter current y -axis x -axis The letter I is used to represent the current flowing through a component in a circuit. The letter V is used to represent the Potential difference across the component. A current–potential difference ( IV ) graph can be used to find the resistance of the component. The current is plotted on the y axis and the potential difference is plotted on the x axis The circuit must contain an ammeter to measure the current and a voltmeter to measure the potential difference. 2 a Label the components in the diagram below:( 5 marks ) © Oxford University Press 2016 This resource sheet may have been changed from the original. 1 P3.2.4

    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.
