Resistor and Ohmmeter Postlab Requirements

  1. What was the biggest challenge about doing this lab?
    Discuss this as part of your summary.
    Hint: Don't think in terms of "What was hard was.."; think in terms of "What I needed to understand is..."

  2. Summarize what you learned doing the lab in your lab notebook. I strongly recommend that you do this within 24 hours of completing the lab. You are summarizing the lab experience not the assigned readings. The summary should be:
    • in point form or charts or diagrams
    • in your lab notebook
    • maximum 4 pages.
      Note: Usually one or two pages should be enough for a decent summary unless you need a lot of diagrams.
    What is in the summary? Assume you are only allowed to take the summary into an exam. What information would you find useful? It is unlikely that statements like "I measured the resistance of a set of resistors" would be of any value. Ask yourself what was the point of each section of the lab? Your summary should include these key points.
  3. Photocopy your summary and submit it at the beginning of next week's lab.
