Resistance

In this lab, students will explore concepts of resistance, while experimenting with constant current sources and the effect of changing resistance. Students will use a Wheatstone bridge to measure and calculate changing resistance values.

This is lab 6 of 17 in the course, Measurements and Instrumentation.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES


After completing this lab, students will be able to:
  1. Use the NI Automated Measurements Board to measure the change in voltage across a variable-resistance load that is connected in a closed-circuit loop with a constant current source.
  2. Use the NI Automated Measurements Board to measure the change in current flowing through a variable-resistance load that is connected in closed-circuit loop with a constant voltage source.
  3. Use the Wheatstone Bridge embedded in your NI Automated Measurements Board to measure resistance.
  4. Simulate important resistance concepts using Multisim Live.
  5. User your NI ELVIS III DMM to confirm measurement results obtained from the NI Automated Measurements Board

 

REQUIRED SKILLS

 
  • Basic proficiency using Multisim Live and LabVIEW
  • Basic proficiency using ELVIS III Instruments
  • Basic knowledge of components and their behaviors

NI ELVIS III

Engineering laboratory solution for project-based learning that combines instrumentation and embedded design with a web-driven experience, delivering a greater understanding of engineering fundamentals and system design.

Automated Measurements Board for NI ELVIS III

An application board for NI ELVIS III that provides students with a experimental platform for understanding and designing a signal chain for sensor integration.

LabVIEW

LabVIEW is systems engineering software for applications that require test, measurement, and control with rapid access to hardware and data insights.

Multisim Live

Multisim Live is an online, touch-optimized component of Multisim, so students can design and simulate their circuits anywhere, anytime, on any device.
