Students are introduced to the concept and properties of voltage, including how it relates to current and resistance and how it is measured across various points in a circuit. First students will explore using a DMM to take voltage measurements of everyday objects. Following that, they will explore the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance in a circuit through Ohm's law and Kirchoff's Voltage Law. Finally they will look at several types of voltage measurements including AC/DC measurements as well as Single-Ended and Differential measurements
After completing this lab, students will be able to:
Simulate Ohm's Law using MultisimLive
Simulate AC/DC voltage sources using MultisimLive
Use your NI ELVIS III DMM to measure voltage
Use your NI ELVIS III Function Generator to generate a voltage signal and read it using an Oscilloscope
Simulate Kirchhoff's Voltage Law using MultisimLive
Conduct single-source voltage measurements using your NI Automated Measurements Board and LabVIEW
Conduct differential voltage measurements using your NI Automated Measurements Board and LabVIEW
Basic proficiency using Multisim Live and LabVIEW
Basic proficiency using ELVIS III Instruments
Basic knowledge of components and their behaviors
