As seen from Graph 1 (Resistance vs. Current) there is not any particular significant relationship between resistance and current. According to Ohm’s Law, when resistance increases, current should have decrease or vice versa. There is no such display of that kind of relationship in Table 1 and Graph 1. The data does not make sense since in a circuit, the current and resistance should influence each other in some type of way. The data did not agree with the expectations. According to Graph 2 (Voltage vs. Current), again, there is not any particular relationship between voltage and current. According to Ohm’s Law, mathematically, when voltage increases, current should also increase and vice versa. The data is not reasonable since voltage helps power the current, there must be some type of relationship between the two. But the data did not agree with the expectations. Kirchhoff’s Law was applied when the circuit was interrupted to measure the current. Revisiting the schematic figure of the circuit (figure 8), when any of the resistors was removed, this should not affect any of the other current. Kirchoff’s First Law states the current entering a junction must be equal to the currents leaving the junction. Hence, the total current will be affected if a resistor was removed, but the individual current should not have change. However, with the method of the data recording, it is a bit difficult to tell if there was a change. Kirchhoff’s Second Law was demonstrate by…
