-Dependant: Power output
-Independent: Distance of solar cell
-Consistent Variables: the electricity of the light bulb, solar cell, voltage, amps Materials:
•Solar panel (cell)
1.Set up the equipment by plugging in the Light Bulb and attaching the Solar Panel to the Multimeter with the Alligator clips and the wires. 2.Begin by using a ruler to measure out the required distances for the practical 3.Switch on your multimeter and turn the switch clockwise until you reach 10 volts 4.Switch the light bulb on and start recording your measurements by measuring the amount of volts being produced by the Light Bulb. 5.Repeat this step, yet switch the multimeter to amps and re record your results, noting down the amount of amps being produced by the light bulb at each distance. 6.For further investigations, use a piece of paper for further results into the practical. This can be conducted by repeating the above steps with a sheet o paper 1 cm away from the solar panel. 7.Once finished, input your results into Microsoft Excel for your analysis of the results. Method Evaluation
The method that was used in the practical proved to be simple yet effective. I believe that...
