Resistors in a series circuit divides the voltage Vs in the ratio Rx : R eq.Large resistors get large voltage drops.
Around any closed loop in a circuit, the algebraic sum of potential differences must equal zero. In circuit#1=.Two data points are experimentally consistent if they overlap about a common region of uncertainty. Such data points are convincingly the same.From data sheet 1, circuit1;;;, from direct reading. Applying equation 4 above gives.and.From this,lies between the range 2.67847- 2.50556.Comparing this with the range for the direct reading of, the regions of uncertainty of the two data points overlap as shown by the plot in fig. 1 above. The experimental data are therefore
