1 RESISTANCE & OHM S LAW (PART I and II) Objectives: To understand the relationship between potential and current in a resistor and to verify Ohm s Law. To understand the relationship between potential and current in a Light Emitting Diode. To understand simple parallel and series circuits and to use this understanding to determine the circuit connections of a hidden black box resistor network. To test the connection between resistance, current, voltage, and power dissipation. Equipment: Digital multimeters(2 per group)(dmm for short), variable power supply (prefer 018 Volt), snaponcircuitboard, 6V lamps, resistors, LED's of different colors. A multimeter is a device that can be used as a voltmeter, an ammeter, or an ohmmeter. Background: Electric resistance, R, is defined by: R = V / I, (1) where V is the potential difference across the resistor and I is the current through it. The unit of resistance is the Ohm. ( Ω = Volt/Ampere = V/A). If R = 0 in a circuit, it is called a "short" circuit; if R =, it is called an open circuit. The product P = I V is the power dissipated in the resistor (of course P = I V = I 2 R = V 2 / R ). Ohm's Law: For many materials R is a constant, independent of I and V. The linear relationship between V and I, V = I R is called Ohm s Law. Materials obeying Ohm s Law are said to be "Ohmic" materials. (Simple light bulbs do NOT satisfy this Law). Equivalent Resistance: When several resistors are connected together, they can usually be replaced with a single resistor that will have the same potential drop and draw the same current as the combination of resistors. This resistance is called the equivalent resistance of the circuit. Resistors in Series: Figure 1. Series Connections When the same current flows through each of a number of resistors, they are said to be in series. The equivalent resistance R eq for resistors connected in series is Ohm 1
2 R eq = R i i (2) Note that R eq is larger than any of the individual resistances. Resistors in Parallel Figure 2. Parallel Connections When the same potential difference appears across each of a number of resistors, they are said to be in parallel. The equivalent resistance R eq for resistors connected in parallel is 1 1 = (3) Req R i i Note that Req is smaller than any of the individual resistances. Electrical Measurements: A voltmeter is a device to measure the potential drop across a circuit. It has a very large resistance so that the current through it is negligible, and it can be assumed that the potential drop across the resistor in Fig. 6a is the same whether or not the voltmeter is attached. A voltmeter is always connected in parallel with the circuit element whose potential difference is to be measured. An ammeter is a device to measure the current through a circuit element. It has a very small resistance so that the potential drop across is negligible, and it can be assumed that the current through the resistor in Fig. 6b is the same whether or not the ammeter is inserted in the circuit. An ammeter is always connected in series with circuit element whose current is to be measured. Ohm 2
3 Figure 6a Voltmeter Connection Figure 6b Ammeter Connection An ohmmeter is a device that measures resistance. It is connected in parallel across the resistance to measured. You should NOT measure the resistance of a resistor that is still part of a circuit. You will probably destroy the ohmmeter, certainly you will measure the wrong resistance. In practise first disconnect all leads of the resistor to be measured, so no electric current runs through the resistor, except for the current supplied by the battery inside the ohmmeter itself.. PART I Diagnostic Phase: You should always make a schematic drawing on paper before building anything! Make a simple circuit on the snaponcircuitboard, consisting of three 6V lamps in series and a 18V power supply. Start at low power supply output and slowly turn up the power until the lamps start to glow. Switch the multimeter to the Voltage Mode and measure the total voltage, then the voltage drop over each lamp. Switch the multimeter to the Ampere Mode and measure the electric current flowing out of the power supply, then the current between each lamp. Since by now you have become an expert in electric circuits, put the lamps back in the box and let s start with the serious stuff. Activity 1: Ohms' Law. You will measure an unknown resistance in three ways and verify that Ohm s Law applies: A. (Easy way): Use an ohmmeter to measure the resistance. See if the measured resistance remains the same if the leads to the ohmmeter are reversed. B. (Fancy way): Connect an ammeter in series with the resistor and a voltmeter in parallel with it as shown below, i.e. use two multimeters in the circuit. Use a variable output power supply to drive the circuit. As the output voltage is increased, measure I and V. To determine the resistance and verify Ohm s Law, use Graphical Analysis to plot I versus V for a number of different voltage settings, make a straight line fit to the data and obtain the correlation coefficient. From the slope you can obtain the resistance R. How? Ohm 3
4 C. (Way for dummies): Read the commercial color coding of the resistor. Does it agree with A and B? V A + Activity 2: Light emitting diode(led)  nonohmic behavior. As an example of a device which does not obey Ohm's law, you will investigate an LED (Light Emitting Diode). For a NONOhmic device there is no easy way to measure its resistance with an ohmmeter. Actually its resistance is not fixed, but an I versus V plot clarifies its response to an applied voltage. A. Make a circuit by connecting a 100 ~ 200 ohm resistor in series with an LED. The resistor is put in to prevent burning out the LED. Connect a voltmeter across the resistor and measure the voltage across the resistor for several values of the supply voltage setting (keep it to be less than 5V to prevent damage to the LED). Since V power source = V ps is known, and V resistor + V LED = V ps, an alternative is to measure V LED directly. To measure the current I you may add an ammeter to the circuit as you did in Activity 1, but instead you may also calculate each time the electric current I from the reading V resistor of the Voltmeter and the known value R of the resistor (V = I R for an Ohmic resistor). At what values of the current does the LED emit light, and at which values does it not emit light? Now reverse the leads from the power supply and repeat the measurement of current in the same range of voltage setting. Compare your observations with what you would expect for Ohmic behavior. B. Try another diode with a different color. ( Different materials have different electron energy gaps. As the electrons jump the gap this leads to emission of light of different colors. Available are LED s which emit red, green, yellow, or blue light.) Ohm 4
5 voltmeter resistor LED voltage supply PART II Activity 3: Back to Ohmic resistors. For this activity you will use three resistors  two with the same resistance and one with a different resistance (10 kω, 10 kω, and 20 kω, for example). A. Determine all possible ways you can connect the resistors in series and/or parallel to give different equivalent resistances. Draw a diagram of each of these combinations, and calculate the theoretical equivalent resistance. B. Set up two of the circuits in A on the breadboard and measure the actual equivalent resistance with a ohmmeter and compare with your calculation. C. Calculate the power dissipated by each resistor in the two circuits in B if a 12 V power supply is connected across the circuit. Appendix: Resistors are coded with 4 colored stripes around the body of the resistor that allow easy determination of the resistance. The code for the first 3 colored bands is given below: RESISTOR COLOR CODES COLOR 1ST DIGIT 2ND DIGIT MULTIPLIER Silver Gold Black Brown Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Violet Gray White Ohm 5
6 The 4th colored band gives the "tolerance," i. e., the uncertainty in the marked resistance, as follows: gold: 5% silver: 10% no color: 20% Example: Figure 8. A Color Coded Resistor Helpful Hint: Most people who get incorrect results in this experiment do so because they fail to use the multimeter correctly. Make sure the multimeter is reading ohms AND that the gain or sensitivity is at the maximum number of significant digits for that resistance. Change the sensitivity by trial and error the maximum number of digits. Ohm 6
7 RESISTANCE & OHM S LAW (preliminary questions) Names: Section: You have three identical light bulbs each with a constant (assume Ohmic) resistance of 150 Ω. Suppose you connect the circuits to a 12 V battery. (a) Draw diagrams showing all the 4 possible ways they can be connected in series and/or parallel. Rank the circuits as a whole in order of brightness (1 = brightest, 4 = dimmest). If ranking all 4 circuits is too difficult, just identify the 2 extremes, (which is the brightest, and which is dimmest). (c) Within each circuit, rank each of the 3 bulbs according to the relative brightness. (d) You can identify Power (= Energy per second) with the brightness. How is the current I passing through each bulb related to the brightness? Ohm 7
8 Report  RESISTANCE & OHM S LAW (Part I) Name: Section: Partners: Date: Part I Diagnostic Phase, building a circuit: On the snaponcircuitboard construct a simple circuit of three 6V lightbubs in series and connections to the 18 Volt power supply. Starting at low voltage, slowly turn up the voltage output of the power supply until the lamps start to glow. DO NOT GO HIGHER. Put the multimeter on DC Volts and measure the total voltage over the three lamps. [WITHIN THE DCVOLT RANGES ON THE MULTIMETER ALWAYS START WITH THE HIGHEST RANGE. If the reading is too low, turn to a lower range.] Now measure the voltage drop over each lamp. Put the multimeter on DC Ampere [again start at highest range] and measure the electric current that flows out of the power supply. (In order to do this step, you have to interrupt the circuit and insert the leads of the Ampmeter). Measure the current in between lamp 1 and lamp 2. Activity 1: Determine an unknown resistance in three ways and verifying Ohm s Law. a.) Direct from Ohmmeter: reading = R unknown = Note that the resistor R unknown at this point should be freestanding (not part of any circuit). b.) From I versus V graph: Draw a circuit of the unknown resistor and the power supply, and indicate where in this circuit you measure the current I and the voltage V. Construct the circuit you have just drawn. Include leads to the power supply, leads to the voltmeter, and leads to the current meter. Ohm 8
9 In this circuit vary the output voltage of the power supply and measure voltage and current at least for 12 settings in the range 0 18 V, (measure the voltage over R and the current passing through R). V I V I V I V I Make a clear graphical representation ( V on horizontal axis, I on vertical axis ) and include the graph with the report. (Don t forget labeling the axes and give it an appropriate title). How is the slope of the best fit line related to the resistance R? R unknown = correlation = Verify Ohmic behavior by checking if your data agree with Ohm s Law. c.) Resistance determined for the same unknown resistor from the color code: R unknown = ± How well does this value agree with your measured value? Ohm 9
10 Activity 2: Light emitting diode(led)  nonohmic behavior. [Do not allow more than 10 ma of current to flow through the LED to prevent damage.] A. Draw a circuit connecting an LED and a 100 ~ 200 Ohm resistor in series with power source. Where in this circuit do you measure V and I? For simplicity, measure the voltage directly over the LED. Construct this circuit on the snaponcircuitboard. B. The value of current I when the LED first lights up: ma C. The value of voltage over the LED, V LED when the LED first lights up: V Describe your observations that show nonohmic behavior of the LED. Include a table of I versus V LED for the range 0 5 V for again at least 12 settings. Since current I may change rapidly, aim at steps of at most 0.5 ma for the current. Remember Imax = 10 ma!!! In addition, show several data points (steps of about 0.1 V) just above the voltage where the LED starts lighting up and the current is still small. What happens if you reverse the leads of the LED? (rotate the LED 180 degrees, leave everything else unchanged). V LED I V LED I V LED I V LED I Ohm 10
11 Make a graph showing I versus V LED. Include also the data for reversed leads in the same graph by extending the voltage axis to include also negative values. Include the graph in the final report. Comment on the several aspects of the behaviour shown in the graph. How is this non Ohmic behavior different from Ohmic behavior B. OPTIONAL: What do you think determines the color of the LED? Ohm 11
12 Report  RESISTANCE & OHM S LAW (Part II) Name: Section: Partners: Date: PART II Activity 3: Resistance combinations. Use the ohmmeter to measure the resistances of the three resistors you will use. Choose two of the resistances to be as closely the same value as possible and the other resistance to be at least twice as big. R 1 = R 2 = R 3 = A. Draw diagrams of all possible ways that you can connect these three resistances in series and/or parallel to give different equivalent resistances. For each diagram calculate the theoretical equivalent resistance (show your work) B. Set up two of the circuits and measure the actual value with an ohmmeter. C. Calculate the power dissipated by each resistor in the two circuits in B if a 12 V battery is connected across the circuit.
