¬¬¬¬¬¬Abstract
Electrical circuits are described with mathematical expressions. Usually, it is possible to calculate the currents and voltages in a circuit by solving a set of equations, the calculations are required to design a safe circuit.and this is one reason why advanced mathematics is so important in the field of electrical engineering. The circuit equations can be determined using Ohm’s Law, which gives the relationship between voltage and current in a resistor (V=IR), and Kirchhoff’s Current and Voltage Laws, which govern the currents entering and exiting a circuit node and the sum of voltages around a circuit loop, respectively.
Objective(s)
The purpose of this experiment is to verify Ohm's Law using resistor in dc and ac circuits.*…show more content…*

The proportionality constant, R, is known as the resistance and is determined by both material properties (the intrinsic resistivity) and geometry (length and cross-sectional area of the active material). In equation form, Ohm’s law is: V = IR. It is important to understand just what is meant by these quantities. The current (I) is a measure of how many electrons are flowing past a given point during a set amount of time. The current flows because of the electric potential (V), sometimes referred to as the voltage, applied to a circuit. In much the same way that a gravitational potential will cause mass to move, the electric potential will cause electrons to move. If you lift a book and release it from a height (high gravitational potential) it will fall downward (to a lower potential). The electric potential works in a similar way; if one point of the circuit has a high electric potential, it means that it has a net positive charge and another point of the circuit with a low potential will have a net negative charge. Electrons in a wire will flow from low electric potential with its net negative charge to high electric potential with its net positive charge because unlike charges attract and like charges*…show more content…*

The bigger the values of the resistors, the bigger the values of the electromotive force will be resulted. This shows that the voltage range and resistor value is linear to each other, while perpendicular with the value of the current. For more clear details, see the date table above Conclusion Overall, both parts of this lab demonstrated the relationship outlined by Ohm’s Law and fostered a higher comprehension of the mechanisms driving circuit behavior. The direct relationships between voltage, current, and resistance allow measurement of the voltage and current without resistance being known. Moreover, the experiment also demonstrated how the different configurations of resistors, parallel or in a series could play a role in the behavior of the circuit and its components.

Further, a dash pot is also included in a system to provide desirable damping effect; otherwise system might oscillate at its natural frequency. When the system is subjected to linear acceleration, a force equaling to mass times the acceleration acts on the proof-mass. This causes the mass to deflect; the deflection is sensed by a suitable means and is converted into an equivalent electrical signal.

In physics, Electricity is a naturally occurring phenomenon of the flow of electric charge. In other words, the process of attraction and repulsion between electric charges produce electricity. There are two types of charges- negative charges and positive charges.

Therefore it is given with two subscripts. The first defines the direction of the generated electric field and second the direction of applied stress. For example: G31 denotes an electrical field in direction 3 with mechanical stress applied in direction 1. e) Elastic compliance “S” “The elastic compliance constant is the ratio of the strain in i – direction to the stress in the j – direction”. For the directions 11 and 33 it is reciprocal of the modulus of elasticity.

The time intervals will also depend on which insulator is the best, as it can affect the structure of the material and how it conducts its temperature(s). If steel wool is made of fine strands of steel, and steel is a form of metal, metal is known to be a good conductor of heat because of the close packing of the metal ions in the lattice and the delocalised electrons that can carry kinetic energy through the lattice.

The strength of the metals also varies based on the strength of the bond.

1016 Words | 5 PagesForces Investigation Introduction & Aim Newton’s Second Law states that the force of a given object “F,” is equal to its mass “m” multiplied by its acceleration “a”, hence the equation F=ma. This investigation aims to prove this law, by investigating the changes in acceleration of a cart being pulled by varying weights. What are the effects that varying forces have on the acceleration of an object? Hypothesis I predict that the greater the weight and therefore the force is that is pulling down on the cart, the greater the cart’s acceleration will be. By whatever amount the net force acting on the cart changes, I believe its acceleration will change proportionally.
