Purpose: We will create working circuits so we can test the relationship described in Ohm’s Law. Through six unique experiments, students will analyze circuit design, voltage drop, open and closed circuits, conductors and insulators as they pertain to the electric current.
Question: How does the circuit design impact the electric current?
This lab uses electrical circuit kits, so make sure that you have the following materials before purchasing:
2 Battery cases
2 Lamps (light/globe)
Plastic Spoon (insulator)
Copper Penny (conductor)
Lab sheet to track data
