Analyzing your Lab Data

What is the relationship between resistance and current in a circuit? Sharing your data table with the public is not enough. It is very difficult to determine a relationship simply looking at a series of numbers. It is much better to view relationships with a trend line.

Create a trend line of your data using Google Sheets. Make sure to share the Google Sheet with your group mates and your teacher when you are finished. Then answer the question below.


Please answer the questions below.

What is the relationship between resistance and current?

Challenge Question: How does voltage relate mathematically to resistance and current?

(What is a mathematical equation that relates voltage (V), current (I), and resistance (R)?)

Take a screen shot of your graph/trend line and attach it here. (If you're not sure how to take a screen shot, Google it.)
