Title Ohm's Law Remote Lab
Description This lab is designed for remote learning. There is a link to the Google doc version in the header. Learning Goals • As you change the value of the battery voltage, how does this change the current through the circuit and the resistance of the resistor? If the current or resistance remains constant, why do you think? • As you change the value of the resistance of the resistor, how does this change the current through the circuit and the battery voltage? If the current or voltage remains constant, why do you think? Use understanding to make predictions about a circuit with lights and batteries.
