So i had to do an experiment which consisted of measuring the current and voltage across different resistors. Here's my question: i recorded the current through the wire that passes through the resistor and compared it with the current which i calculated (theoretical). In this case, when i apply the junction rule using the current i read from the ammeter, it is NOT equal to zero (somehow its higher than 0). Like why is this the case? I'm not sure if its right but could it be that we were not using an ideal circuit, that is, there is resistance in the wires that could have affected our ammeter readings? Like i'm thinking that the resistance in the wire also affect our voltmeter readings as well...am i on the right track?
