Objectives

flowing through a device and the applied voltage

across the device

multimeter

the best straight line among data points, and

determining the slope of that line

difference

Apparatus Required

black colored bands)

One “47 Ohm” Resistor (with the yellow, purple

and black colored bands)

DC Power Supply

2 Digital Multimeters

5 Banana plug leads and 2 alligator clip leads

A computer for plotting data

Watch and make sure the current doesn’t exceed 200 mA.

in the circuit. If it is in parallel you will blow a

fuse and will pay the costs of a new fuse ($1.00)

that a higher range is needed.

digits are displayed for the largest reading. Then

use the same range of the multimeter for all of the

current measurements for that device. You may need a

different range for a different device, but use the

same range for each current reading for that device.

Procedure

purple, and black resistor using the multimeter in

Ohmmeter mode. This is your measured value of

resistance, which is different, most likely, than

the manufacturer’s reported value.

2. Draw a circuit diagram for a DC power supply and your

particular resistor in series.

3. Draw a new diagram indicating how you would add a

multimeter in ammeter mode to measure current in the

circuit #2.

4. Draw a new diagram indicating how you would add

another multimeter in voltmeter mode to measure

voltage across the DC power supply in the circuit

#3.

5. Put the DC power supply, two digital multimeters, and

one of the yellow, purple and black resistors in a

series circuit (just as you drew in #4, above). Be

sure that positive current flowing out of the red

terminal of the power supply will flow from the red

to the black terminals inside the multimeter. Use

the second multimeter in voltmeter mode in parallel

with the power supply to set and measure the

voltage.

6. Remember (from the previous lab) that, before turning

on the power supply, you should turn the voltage

adjust to zero (counterclockwise) and the current

adjust to maximum (clockwise).

7. Change the voltage of your power supply from 0.5 V to

5.0 V in steps of 0.5 V (10 measurements). Record

the values of the current in Amps for each value.

Record these voltages and the resulting currents in

a neat table. Be sure to indicate the units used in

each column of your data. Notice that if you use the

A/mA setting, the screen will give you mA. In such

a case, divide each number by 1000 to get Amps.

brown, green and black resistor.

that the data points are spread over most of the area

occupied by the graph.

of the two resistors. On each graph be sure to:

a. Graph the dependent variable (on the y-axis)

versus the independent variable (on the x-axis)

b. Include a title at the top

c. Label each axis

d. Indicate the units for each axis

e. Choose an appropriate scale for each axis

f. Fit a line using a spreadsheet utility to

your data.

slope of the current versus voltage graph for the

resistor. In doing this:

a. Plot the best straight line among the data

points.

b. Generate a linear fit equation to data line.

c. Calculate the resistance from the slope.

Show algebraically why the slope gives the

resistance indicated.

value of the resistance obtained from the graph

and the value of the resistance obtained from the

multimeter. Use the multimeter value as a

reference, and indicate by what percent

difference the graph value deviates from it.

Notice that a negative percent difference

indicates that the value obtained from the graph

is smaller than the value obtained from the

multimeter.
