Characteristics of a Wire

In this experiment the voltage is changed across a wire and the current is measured. This allows us to investigate the behaviour of an ohmic conductor.

Characteristics of a Wire - RESULTS

The results can be plotted on a graph with voltage on the y-axis and current on the x-axis. This is an example of an ohmic conductor that obeys Ohm's Law.
