Day #4 (final day)

The picture above is the electric house, completed. There is a circuit for each room, and each circuit is different. In previous posts, i have explained each circuit, so i won’t  go into detail here.

This is a schematic diagram that we need to make as part of the assignment. It aligns with the picture above, so you can see that we have a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and a living room. the loops with the circles around are the light bulbs, and the 2 lines, one of which is longer, is the symbol for a battery.

This is the calculations that we did for the circuits, and the main formula to know is that Resistance=voltage/current. We had voltmeters and ammeters that we used to measure the voltage and the current, and using the formula we found the resistance. In parallel circuits though, when the current branches out into different wires, it will decrease, and you have to modify your calculations as necessary (1 amp splits into 2 branches, 0.5 amps a branch).

I feel like our group is prepared for the presentation tomorrow, and we should be able to get a good mark.
