Abstract:

This experiment’s objective is to provide us with the necessary knowledge needed to

understand how to apply the Ohm’s law and understand the necessary sign conventions as regard

to voltages and currents. The Ohm’s law which is in the form of V=IR, where V=voltage,

I=current, and R=resistance is used when dealing with either simple or complex circuits. We

were provided with a power supply, VOM, a circuit board with resistors. The resistors given on

the board had some differences with the resistors needed for the experiment but using the Ohm’s

law we were able to connect certain resistors in a way that we can obtain the needed resistance.

Using the knowledge obtained from the previous lab experiments we were able to understand

what the circuit diagram meant and how to connect the wires in a way that wouldn’t cause a

short circuit. We also made use the knowledge obtained during our familiarization with the

VOM. After computing for the resistance in the circuit diagram, we were able to obtain a similar

result to the computed result by using the VOM. When the power supply was introduced to the

circuit we didn’t have much trouble since the circuit was already pretested.

Introduction:

We started the experiment by testing the connecting wires using the VOM, this was done

to ensure the all the wire were in working quality. The resistors were also tested, so as to assure

that they are set-up to give us the desired resistance needed. When everything was set-up

correctly we introduced a power supply of 20v DC to the circuit. We started testing the given

points to see what the currents and voltages were then later compared it to our computed result. It

wasn’t exactly the same but it was close. This proves that using the Ohm’s law V=IR, where

V=voltage, I=current, and R=resistance, we can compute for the resistance, ampere, or voltage

with a given circuit.

Body:

Results:

The following are the results we obtained for the resistance:

True Value: 1031 ohms Experimental Value: 1020 ohms Percentage error: 1.07%

In order to measure the current and voltage at the given points we reconnected the power

supply resulting in the following results:

Ibd Ide Ibc Vbd Vde Vbc

20mA 15mA 15mA 6V 4.5V 2.25V

Table 1.0

Discussion:

In the first set of results we obtained a true value of 1031 ohms. This was

accomplished by combining R

2

= 500 ohms and R

4

= 250 ohms

in a series connections

resulting in a total of 750 ohms. Then combining R

3

= 300 ohms and R

5

= 150 in a series

connection resulting in a total of 450 ohms.

The 750 ohmsis parallel to the 450 ohms and

can be computed as follows (750*450)/(750+450), adding R

1

= 750 which is in series

gives as a total result of 1031 ohms, which is our True Value. When using the VOM we

obtained a results of 1020 ohms which is our experimental value. To find the percent

difference we used the formula ((TV-EV)/(TV))(100) which gave us the result of 1.07%.

` In the following experiment we were asked to find the values of the current and

voltages at different points resulting in Table 1.0.

Answers to Problems:

1. Why can’t Ohm’s law be described in terms of “constant proportionality”?

Because the Ohm’s law is composed of I=V/R, where each component has its

own characteristic and value. For example when R=IV, as you increase the value of

R, it doesn’t mean that only I or only V was increased.

2. Why does the E/I ratio of an electric circuit indicate its ability to oppose electric

current rather than its ability to permit current flow?

Because the E/I is a combination of multiple resistors connected in series and in

parallel, unlike a single resistor that can either permit or oppose electron flow

depending on the current that passes.

3. An electric fuse consists of a small strip of wire with a low melting temperature. The

current in the protected circuit flows this strip. Which will have a greater resistance, a

10 A fuse or a 20 A fuse? Explain.

The 20A fuse will have more resistance based on the Ohm’s law which states that

R=IV. This means that as the current increases so does the resistance.

4. What is implied when the current direction is based on The Electron Theory? When it

is based on the generally adopted practice or the conventional way?

The Electron Theory states that electron flows from the negative (-) to the positive

(+). The conventional way states that it moves from positive (+) to negative (-).

5. The cold resistance of 100-watt – filled tungsten lamp is 16.8ohms, and the hot

resistance at its operating voltage of 118v is 139ohms. Determine the current at the

instant that the lamp is connected across the voltage and the current after it has

reached the steady operating condition.

Using the ohm’s law for current: I = V/R

The current at the instant the lamp is connected is:

118V/16.8 ohms = 7.024A

The current at steady operating condition:

118V/139 ohms = 849mA

6. The exciting current of an electromagnet is rated at 12A. When connected across a

122v source the current is 14A. Determine the ohms in a resistor w/c must be

connected in series to limit the current to a) Rated Value and b) 9A.

Using the ohm’s law for current: R = I/V

a) Rated Value

12A/122V = 0.098 ohms

b) 9A

9A/122V = 0.074 ohms

Conclusions:

In the end of the experiment we were able to understand the relation between the

resistance, voltage, and current in the Ohm’s law. Like how we were able to answer questions

concerning which fuse would have more resistance, or how much resistance is needed to obtain a

give current. Our familiarity with the VOM also improved during the process. We created a

simple circuit with a board filled with resistors and we experimented on how the connections of

the resistors can affect the overall resistance of the circuit.. All this put together have give us a

deeper understanding of the electrons that run through the circuit and how they are affected by

the components connected.
