Homework Help: Omh's Law Lab

  1. Feb 27, 2013 #1

    I am currently working on my lab, and am wondering if someone would be so kind as to give it a gander. The only section I need looked over is the theory section, which, incidentally, is the only part I have written thusfar. I'd really appreciate it if you could critique the theory section in general, but I do have some specific questions that I have inserted in the text, colored red.

    Thank you in advance! :biggrin:

    PS This is the first draft, and it goes without saying, that it may be rough.

    No. It's "per second".

    Compare with water flowing in a pipe. The flow rate of the water is in "Liters per second".

    No. Think of it as flowing "past a point".

    So overall current is the quantity of charge flowing past a point per second.

    I haven't read the rest of your write up.

    I'll make the corrections, with regard to your suggestions.

    How can you bump that.

    Show us the edited write-up. (Please don't give a link to a word ('.doc') document. Many of us won't open them -- risk of virus, etc. Use a pdf format or similar.)

    Well, he said that he only viewed that parts in red, and not the rest. So, I was hoping that someone could view the rest. But, if you'd like the slightly revised, that's fine. I'll just edit my original post to include.

    EDIT: I can't edit my original post. Haha. I will just attach it to this post
