Observations
As the current increased, the lamp became brighter and brighter and also became warmer and warmer. For both the resistor and lamp, as current increased voltage increased.

Comment on Graph and Processed Results
For both the resistor and the current the lines of best fit were upward sloping indicatingthat as voltage increased, current increasedFor the resistor;A straight line almost passing through the origin is observed.The gradient is constant. This indicated that the resistance is constant. Hence, the resistor is an ohmic conductor.For the lamp;An upward sloping curve is observed.The gradient of the slope becomes steeper and steeper as the current increases. Thisindicated that the resistance becomes greater and greater as the current increases. Hence,the lamp is a non-ohmic conductor.
