Ohm's Law Practical Report

User Description:
The aim of this experiment was to investigate and determine the relationship between voltage, current and resistance, and to prove this using Ohm’s Law. The relationship will be determined by measuring the current, whilst the voltage remains constant and the resistance is varied. The second way to determine the relationships, is by measuring current, keeping the resistance constant and varying the voltage. The third method will be to measure the voltage, whilst keeping the current constant and changing the resistance. In addition, by conducting this experiment, the desired outcome was to prove, validate and verify Ohm’s Law by proving a directly proportional relationship between voltage and current, a proportional relationship between voltage and resistance and an inversely proportional relationship between resistance and current.

Sample Text:
This led to the development of ‘Ohm’s Law’ – which states that the current through a conductor is proportional to the potential difference across it, provided that the physical conditions (e.g. temperature) remain constant. It can be illustrated using the equations below; V = I × R I = V R QUANTITY SYMBOL UNIT UNIT SYMBOL Current I Ampere A Voltage V Voltage V Resistance R Ohms Ω Here, it can be seen that the voltage, is applied across the circuit in volts is equal to the product of the current and the resistance. It implies the voltage remains constant, then the current is inversely proportional to the resistance across the circuit (I ∝ ). The ...

Ohms Law Practical Report

This student studied:
SACE - Year 11 - Physics

Throughout this report, the aim is to investigate the relationship between current, potential difference and resistance with a fixed resistor and a light globe circuit. The investigation will be divided in three parts: Firstly to see if a change in voltage affects the resistance of an Ohmic resistor, Secondly replacing a resistor with a light bulb which is defined as “Non-Ohmic”. Finally, testing the effect of different lengths and thicknesses have on the resistance of the conductor. Ohms law, V = IR will be used to calculate the results which will then lead to a discussion in this report.
