Hardware to do electricity experiments with NeuLog Sensors.
- Basic electricity circuits
- Circuits in series and parallel
- Ohm’s Law
- Transformation of electric energy to light
- Electromagnets (using a wire wound on a nail)
Electricity is very fundamental for any basic physics course; but performing electricity experiments is sometimes complicated and requires complex and expensive equipment. This simple kit combined with NeuLog logger sensors allows students to investigate this field.
Ohm's law applies to electrical circuits; it states that the current flowing through the circuit is directly proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance. In this experiment you will be able to find out this voltage – current dependence by applying a variable voltage to a given resistance and measuring the generated electric current.
In an incandescent lamp; electric current flows through a thin thread called filament. The current heats this filament reaching approximately 3;000oC and this causes the production of heat as well as light. This experiment studies how long it takes the light bulb to finally irradiate light; from the moment current (electrons) begins to flow through the circuit. These and other basic and advanced experiments can be easily conducted using this kit along with logger sensors.
