PIRA Classification: 5F10.10

Description: An ammeter and voltmeter (LabVIEW based) are used to measure the voltage and current in a simple circuit consisting of a power supply and 1-3 resistors (1 kΩ each). The voltage and/or resistance can be changed and the change in current is observed. The program will also calculate the resistance in the circuit from the measured current and voltage. The calculated and known resistances are compared.

Special Instructions: Press 'collect' to start the program. Do not adjust voltage above 14 V. Do not switch polarity.

Condition: Good

Setup time: 2 minutes

Safety Issues: None
