Features 23 core lab activities that cover the fundamental concepts of Force & Motion, Energy Transfer, Electricity & Circuits, Fluids and more.
Measuring the Voltage of Elements in Series
Use a voltage sensor to investigate the voltage drop across a varying number of elements in series in a circuit.
In this activity, students investigate the voltage drop across a varying number of elements in series in a circuit.
Students gain experience conducting the following procedures:
- Setting up the equipment and work area to measure the voltage across a circuit
- Building a simple circuit with wire, holiday "mini" light bulbs, and batteries
- Systematically measuring the voltage across different numbers of resistors ("mini" light bulbs) in series
