Questions

1. Does the absolute value of electric current in one direction is the same as in the other when you reversed the leads across

the resistance?

2.

Does your resistance follow Ohm's law? Base your answer on your experimental data.

. Does the absolute value of electric current in one direction is the same as in the other when you reversed the leads across

the diode?

4.

How does the graph of I versus V for the diode compare with the graph for the resistor?

5. A typical color television draws about 2.5 A when connected to a 120 V source. What is the effective resistance of the!

set ?
