Ohm’s law & resistors in parallel & in series

Lab 4

Class: PHY 1434-E475

Due date: March, 13 20144

Group Names: Hisham Sageer

Objectives:

Our object is to confirm Ohm’s law by analyzing the dependence of the electrical current as a function of voltage and as a function of resistance. Also, we studied the current flow and voltage in series and parallel. Finally, the lab determined the equivalence resistance of series and parallel combination of resistors and compared the results with theoretical data.

Theoretical Background:

The first thing that needs to be described in this lab is what the electric current I:

Set the ammeter to the range of mA and the voltmeter across the resistor the range of 25V. b After the instructor has checked the circuits, turn on the power supply. c Vary the output voltage of the power supply from 4 V to 10 V in the increment of 1 V and record the readings of the voltage V across the resistor and the corresponding current I through the resistor in Table 1. d Using the same circuit setup, set resistance of the variable resistor box to R = 1200Ω and repeat the steps 2 and 3.

2 Investigate the variation of the current with resistance when the voltage is constant. a Use the same circuit setup and set the output voltage of power supply to 12V. b By keeping the output voltage of the power supply constant, vary the resistance of the resistor box from 700 Ω to 1700 Ω in increments of 200 Ω. Record values of the current I through the resistor and the corresponding resistance R in table2.

Data:

Attached to report.

Calculations:

1 Use the data from table 1 to plot a graph of current Vs. voltage for both values of the resistance. Determine the slope of the graph. From the slope of the graph find the resistance using:

a) R = R = R =1000 Ω

% diff = = 0%

b) R = R = R =1250 Ω

c) Slope = 12.7

V = 12 v

We used Ohm’s law R=V/I and R=E/I and the values of current and voltage to find the resistance of an electric circuit. We also found that the SI unit of volt are Joules/Coulomb and that power is measured in Watts. Questions and Answers 1. State the equation

For other uses, see Ohm's acoustic law. V, I, and R, the parameters of Ohm's law. Ohm's law states that the current through a conductor between two points is directlyproportional to the potential difference across the two points. Introducing the constant of proportionality, the resistance,[1] one arrives at the usual mathematical equation
