Effective Resistance Activity
Product Description
Using Power Supplies, Resistors, Voltage and Ammeters, students will first build series and parallel circuits and ultimately discover how the current and voltage behaves. The second half of the activity explores the idea that circuits can be treated as a resistor having an effective resistance value. Students are challenged to make this connection in the context of an engaging and hands-on activity.
