Ohm's Law Essay

1333 words - 6 pages

Objective: The purpose of this lab is for student's to investigate the relationship between the three variables involved in Ohm's Law- Current, Voltage, and Resistance.Theory: The Ohm's law states that the direct current flowing in a conductor is directly proportional to the potential difference between its ends. It is usually formulated as V = IR, where V is the potential difference, or voltage, I is the current, and R is the resistance of the conductor.Formulas:V=IRMaterials:1) Circuits Experiment Board2) D-Cell3) Wire4) Digital Multimeter (DMM)5) ResistorsDiagrams:AmmmeterUmm WireVolt MeterrheostatProcedure:1) Making sure that the switch is open carefully construct the circuit.

2) For each value of R in table V very carefully adjust the knob of the power supply until the current R is 1ma (1ma Full scale meter). For each of these values of R in table V measure the voltage with a voltmeter (12 V Full-Scale).A. Variation of current with voltage keeping R constant.1. Applying Ohm's Law, for each value of I and Vr in Table I compute R and record these values in table I.2. Determine the average value of R from Table I and record in Table II.3. Determine the average value of Vr in table III and record in table IV.B.
