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

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
