Circuits Lab 2

PHY 100


Student explore how current flows in a series circuit.


Name Location Quantity
Battery, D 1.5V JE-105A-S136,D100 1 per table
Clips, Paper (Large) JE-105A-X29 2 per table
Holder, D-Battery, Single JE-105A-s136 1 per table
Wire, Copper, Insulated, #22 JE-105A-S137 3 per table
Light Bulb Kit (#48, matched set) JE 105A-016 1 per table
Holder, Light Bulb, Miniature JE-105A-S137 2 per table


Set up as in the picture. Light bulbs must be put in the bulb holders during set up. Thin uninsulated wire should be used instead of the paper clips when possible. #28 wire is ideal.

Along with the initial apparatus set-up, supply a sufficient number of the appropriate paper procedure handouts for all of the lab sections that will use the set-up over the course of the week. Print the PDF, duplicate to double-sided pages, staple, and leave pile on instructor's table prior to first use of set-up.
