1. In the circuit above, the rating of the resistor is not s
Exercise 2: Resistors in series
Create the following circuit on your breadboard:
1. Measure and record the voltage drop across each resistor:
2. Measure and record the current flowing between the first and
0 Exercise 3: Kirchoffs Voltage Law
Kirchoffs Voltage Law is a simple statement of potential: traveling around a circuit and
returning to the same point, through any path, must bring you back to the same potential.
In our simple circuits, this means that
Exercise 4: Kirchoffs Current and Voltage Laws
Kirchoffs Current Law is a statement of the conservation of current. For the picture on
the right, it implies that i1=i2+i3. In other words, the sum of the currents at any node must

Exercise 5: A nightlight
Create the following nightlight circuit on your breadboard:
1. A photoresistor is a light sensitive resistor. When its dark, the photoresistors
resistance is large; when its light, the photoresistors resistance is low.
