# Universal 550 Physics Experiment Manual – Pre-Order

SKU: UI-5831 Category:

## Description

Now Available for Pre-Order

In this parallel resistor experiment, the 550 Universal Interface is used as the DC power supply and is used to measure the output voltage and the voltage across the resistors. The Wireless Current Sensor Module is used in-line in the circuit to measure the current in each loo

## Overview

This complete manual is included with the 550 Universal Physics System (UI-5830). Each experiment consists of student instructions in a Word® document that the instructor can modify as they like, a PASCO Capstone setup file ready for data collection, a Capstone file with sample data, and all the lab equipment required for the experiment. All of this content is provided on a flash drive.
