What does a straight line through the origin indicate The voltage and current are directly proportional and resistance is constant
What does a steep gradient indicate Low resistance as a large current will flow for a small p d
What does a shallow gradient indicate High resistance as a large p d is needed to produce a small current
What results as a non linear graph For some resistors the value of R is not constant but changes as the current changes
Name the considerations u need to make when investigating the characteristics of a filament lamp a diode and a resistor at constant temperature Before taking a measurement check the voltage and current with the power supply turned off this will alow zero errors to be identified
Another? Reading the supply voltage across the component. At a low component resistance the wire will take a sizeable share of the voltage resulting in a lower voltage this is why a voltmeter is used to measure the voltage across the component
what is the independent variable of this practical The potential difference across the component set by the variable resistor
