Ohm’s Law and Resistivity

Ohm’s Law and Resistivity By: Alexis Huddleston   Introduction:             The purpose of this experiment was to gain an understanding of Ohm’s law, to experimentally evaluate the validity of the formulas used to determine equivalent resistance, and to find the resistivity of carbon. Ohm’s law, as stated in this activity, is defined as a fundamental rule for analyzing circuits which involve only one voltage, current and resistance in the simplest cases. Interestingly Ohm’s law is named for the relationship between […]
