Fig. 1.6 b Actual Experiment3.Two Resistors Connected in Series (Fig. 1.6 a and b)a.Record the gradual increase in voltage from 0.5 V to 5V. Find the best fit line, display the equation and the slope and intercept. Record the slope. Measure the voltage over each current and over the current over eachresistor.4.Two Resistors Connected in Parallel (Fig. 1.7 a and b)a.Record the gradual increase in voltage from 0.5 V to 5V. Find the best fit line, display the equation and the slope and intercept. Record the slope. Measure the voltage over each current and over the current over each resistor.Fig. 1.6 a Schematic for 2 Resistors in Series Fig. 1.7 b Actual Experiment Fig. 1.7 a Schematic for 2 Resistors in Parallel
