Planning & Designing Experiment: Investigating the current

Title: Investigating the current – potential difference relationship for a metal wire. Aim: To design an experiment that will facilitate an I – V Graph to be ascertained of a metal wire and thus find the resistance of the wire by deriving the inverse of the gradient of the graph. Skill: Planning & Designing Theory:… View Article

Resistors in series and parallel

Resistors are used in various real life applications to perform tasks that involve: limiting the current that goes through a section of a circuit, introducing a voltage drop in a circuit, generating heat and the protection of components of a circuit. It is important to calculate the resistance of resistors so that the electrical circuits… View Article
