ABSTRACT
Ohm's Law and Kirchhoff's rules is fundamental for the understanding of dc circuit. This experiment proves and show how these rules can be applied to so simple dc circuits.

INTRODUCTION
In the theory of Ohm's Law, voltage is simply proportional to current as illustrated in the proportionality, V=RI. As shown in this relation, V represent voltage which is the potential difference across the two ends of a electrical conductor and between which an electric current, I, will flow. The constant, R, is called the conductor's resistance. Thus by the Ohm's Law, one can determine the resistance R in a DC circuit without measuring it directly provided that the remaining variable V and I is known.

A resistor is a piece of electric conductor which obeys Ohm's Law and has been designed to have a specific value for its resistance. As an extension of the Ohm's Law, two more relationship can be drawn for electric circuits containing resistors connected in series or/and parallel. For resistors connected in series, the sum of their resistance is, RTOTAL=R1+R2+ ..... +Rn . And for resistors connected in parallel, 1/RTOTAL==1/R1+1/R2+ ..... +1/Rn . Complex dc circuit involving a combination of parallel and series resistors can be analyzed to find the current and voltage at each point of the circuit using 2 basic rules formulated by Kirchhoff. 1) The algebraic sum of current at any branch point in a circuit is zero. 2) The algebraic sum of potential difference, V, around any closed loop in a circuit is zero. These rules and equations provided by the Ohm's law and the Kirchhoff rule can be experimentally tested with the apparatus available in the lab

...OHM’SLAW
INTRODUCTION
Ohm'slaw states that the current through a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the potential difference or voltage across the two points, and inversely proportional to the resistance between them provided the temperature remains constant.
The mathematical equation that describes this relationship is:
where V is the potential difference measured across the resistance in units...

...Conclusion
Ohm'sLaw states that V=RI where V is the difference of potential at the poles of the element (measured in volts), R is the resistance of the element being tested (a resistor in this case, measured in ohms), and I is the current passing through the circuit (measured in milliamps). When the Y-intercept on the attached voltage drop vs. current in the conductor graph is examined, it is observed that the the ranges of R values overlap, also...

...1.0 Introduction
The rule of law is fundamental in any society where human rights are to be protected. The word rule comes from “règle” and law from “lagu” roughly translating to “supremacy of law”.1It is a mechanism for safeguarding human rights by guaranteeing them legally and at the same time providing a means for redressal where violations occur.
The most important application of the rule of...

AIM OF THE EXPERIMENT
Confirmation of OHM’SLAW
THEORY:
It was George Simon Ohm (1787-1854) who established experimentally that the current in a metal wire is directly proportional to the potential difference V applied to its two ends, provided that the physical conditions such as temperature remain constant:
