Resistance Practical

Resistance of a Length of Wire

In this experiment the current and voltage are measured across a length of wire which is increased from 0.100 m to 0.600 m. As the length is increased this changes the total resistance of that piece of wire.

Resistance of a Length of Wire - RESULTS

These are my results - I paused the video and took the values from the voltmeter and ammeter at that time to calculate the resistance.
