### Verification of Ohm's Law

Apparatus

• DC Voltage Source : 1.0 V to 10.0 V
• Resistance
• DC voltmeter : Suitable range
• DC ammeter : Suitable range
• Multimeter

Circuit Diagram

Procedure

• Switch on the main supply.
• Set DC voltage at say 1.0 V , note down the reading of voltage and current.
• Increase DC voltage in step by step from 1.0 V to 5.0 V and note down reading of voltage and current.

Observation table

 Sr.No Potential Difference across resistor ( V ) Current passes through resistor ( I ) Ratio of V to I ( V / I ) 1 1.0 0.1 10 2 2.0 0.2 10 3 3.0 0.3 10 4 4.0 0.4 10 5 5.0 0.5 10

• Observe the reading of voltage and current.
• If the voltage increases, current increases linearly.
• Calculate the ratio of V to I for each reading.
• Draw a graph for V ( Y – axis ) and I ( X – axis ).

Conclusion

• The electric current passes through conductor is directly proportional to potential difference across it.
• The ratio of V to I remains constant considering temperature and other consider unaltered.
