Homework Help: What would happen to the slope of the graph?

  1. Nov 10, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    What would happen to the slope of the graph- Current Vs. Voltage if a higher value resistor was used?

    2. Relevant equations

    Slope is the Resistance R. This experiement was intended to verify Ohm's Law; however, can you verify Ohm's Law if the resistor overheated in the experiment? How would you rearrange Ohm's Law equation to make it useful to graph y=mx?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Maybe there would be a downward curve in the slope because a higher value resistor would decrease the flow of current?
