Featured in PASCO’s Physics through Inquiry Teacher Guide
Features over 30 inquiry based labs covering the core topic areas of mechanics, electricity and magnetism, optics, thermodynamics and more.
Use a voltage sensor and current sensor to investigate the relationship between current, voltage, and resistance in a circuit.
Students investigate the relationship between current, voltage, and resistance in a circuit.
Students gain experience conducting the following procedures:
- Measuring the current through a resistor in a circuit as the voltage applied to the resistor changes.
- Comparing the slopes of Voltage versus Current graphs for two different resistors.
- Measuring the current through a light bulb in a circuit as the voltage applied to the bulb changes.
- Comparing the plot of Voltage versus Current for a circuit with a light bulb to the voltage versus current plots that result from two different resistors.
Sensors / Equipment Used:
Allows students to safely measure voltage and current simultaneously without overloading the sensor. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.
Charge/Discharge circuit board
Patch cord 4 mm banana plug ~ 5
AA battery ~ 2
