Investigating the resistance of a wire planning ----- aim the aim of my investigation is to investigate how length affects the resistance of a wire. Voltage and current in a practical circuit chapter 1 the resistance of a lamp will be much greater than the resistance of the connecting wires,. Electrical resistivity (also known as resistivity, specific electrical resistance, or volume resistivity) is a fundamental property that quantifies how. 26102011 homework help: resistance of a wire experiment oct 26, 2011 #1 the fact that, as the wire got shorter and therefore the resistance greater,.
The alligator clips were clipped together, so that the resistance of the wires of the probes and alligator connections could be measured however the result was not reliable nor consistent moving the wires of the circuit, and trying to hold the clips hard together gave results which varied from 45 ohms to less than 1 ohm. 3 outline of the practical activity in this practical protocol students investigate one way in which bacteria acquire antibiotic resistance through conjugation. Resistivity and resistance resistance of the wire, the voltage drop across the wire, and the current passing through the wire explain your reasoning 5. Analysis of conductors - practical investigation - free download as word doc (doc / docx), pdf file (pdf), text file (constant resistance) or.
Science investigation task: resistance 17 comparision of the resistance of both the wires table 19: compiling data voltage through the battery resistance of wire a resistance wire b eliminator(v) 28 622 ω 7ω 48 505 ω 533 ω 68 453 ω 453 ω 88 463 ω 44 ω 108 45 ω 469 ω graph 05: showing the. Does temperature affect conductivity and resistance to an electrical charge as the immediately measure the resistance of the wire using an. Hi there, there is a section missing from this required practical bundle this is the section on finding the resistance of a filament lamp. A simple investigation of the factors affecting the resistance of a wire. As these electrons ﬂow through the wire, they are scattered by atoms in the wire the resistance of the circuit is just that it is a measure of how diﬃcult it is for the electrons to ﬂow in the presence of such scattering this resistance is a property of the circuit itself, and just about any material has a resistance.
Like the resistance to water flow, the total amount of resistance to charge flow within a wire of an electric circuit is affected by some clearly identifiable variables first, the total length of the wires will affect the amount of resistance the longer the wire, the more resistance that there will be. The effect of temperature on resistance introduction: wires a and d will go to the power supply (with an ammeter wire in series in this loop. •investigate ohm’s law experimentally to find out how voltage, current and resistance in an electric circuit are related •record data in tables using microsoft excel •analyse and interpret the results mathematically using the formula and create a graph of data collected in the investigation using microsoft excel. 29042015 this video is intended for students to watch and pause as they set up the experiment to find the relationship between resistance and the length. Experiment to measure the resistivity of a wire equipment: complete a table as below and calculate the resistance of the wire for each length.
Wires, between 60 feet (183m) and 180 feet (549m) use 14 gauge wires and use 12 gauge wires for distances greater than 180 feet (549m) for the wires used in home cinema and hi-fi systems the resistance of the wires is the most important property of the wire the resistance is affected by both the length and cross-sectional area of the wires. 26102011 1 the fact that, as the wire got shorter and therefore the resistance greater, i could not keep the wire from heating up 2 the wire i was using had a tendency to wind up, diminishing my precision and accuracy in measuring the length 3 my crocodile clips were slightly rusty, which could have affected its ability to conduct. A great resource to help support the required practical investigation into resistance in electrical circuits this includes a presentation to help deliver.
Practical activities have been safety checked but not trialled by 105 m of 34 swg constantan wire this has a resistance of about 12 ωm–1. Known cross-sectional area of the wire to calculate the resistivity resistance versus the tighten both clamps to secure the wire in place 3 ohm’s law. Class practical investigating the changing resistance of a wire as it heats up apparatus and materials power supply, low voltage, dc eg 12 v, 4 a at.
#3096 g496 - pratical investigation sherman ip g496 researching physics: practical investigation investigating damping due to liquid resistance sherman ip. Where to buy resistance wire the current details we have are v b rewinds: they are selling resistance and copper wire at very competitive prices, are. Resistance vs length obtain various lengths of the same gauge copper wire (we used 02, 04, 06, 08 and 10 meter lengths of 22-gauge wire) set up a series circuit using a 3-v dc power supply, a current probe (ammeter), a 10 ω resistor, and one length of the copper wire connect the instrumentation amplifier in parallel with the copper wire.
