Ohm’s Law Experiment

Product Code: EX-5535

Description

In this experiment, students simultaneously measure both current and voltage for a simple DC circuit. The relationship between current and voltage is explored for different resistors in parallel. Voltage is graphed vs. current to verify Ohm’s Law and recognize the physical meaning of slope.


Concepts

  • Relationship between voltage and current
