Title Discovering Ohm's Law Inquiry Lab
Description Students make 3 circuits, vary voltage, measure current. They graph data and generate line of best fit to discover that the slope is the value of the resistance in each circuit. They use this information to generate an equation for Ohm's Law and immediately check with an online source to verify. Three practice problems for conclusion.
