Question

1. Two resistors in series: Construct the circuit on your breadboard for the two-resistor series circuit. Place an ammeter to measure the TOTAL current in the circuit. • Measure the voltage across any of the two resistors. Drag the voltmeter to a convenient spot and take two wires to hook it up properly to measure the desired voltage. Place the value of the reading (what it should read ideally) in the space provided on the sheet. • Use the wires provided. Save the red for the power input and then use whatever colors you prefer, or your TA prefers, for the meters and and return wire. 2. Two resistors in parallel: Construct the circuit on your breadboard for the two-resistor parallel circuit. Place an ammeter to measure the TOTAL current in the circuit. • Measure the voltage across any of the two resistors. Drag the voltmeter to a convenient spot and take two wires to hook it up properly to measure the desired voltage. Place the value of the reading (what it should read ideally) in the space provided on the sheet. • Use the wires provided. Save the red for the power input and then use whatever colors you prefer, or your TA prefers, for the meters and and return wire. 3. One resistor in series with a parallel combination: Construct the circuit of the single resistor in series with a parallel combination. Place the ammeter to measure the TOTAL current in the circuit. • Measure the voltage across any of the three resistors. Drag the voltmeter to a convenient spot and take two wires to hook it up properly to measure the desired voltage. Place the value of the reading (what it should read ideally) in the space provided on the sheet. • Use the wires provided. Save the red for the power input and then use whatever colors you prefer, or your TA prefers, for the meters and and return wire.
