b. ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

d. ability to function on multidisciplinary teams

e. ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

g. ability to communicate effectively

At the end of this activity, the student shall be able to:

a. identify a parallel connected resistors

b. calculate the total resistance of resistors in parallel

c. evaluate the characteristics of a parallel resistors

The objectives of this activity are to:

1. determine the total resistance of parallel resistive circuit.

2. verify the results with a multimeter.

In electronic circuits, there is often a need to determine the amount of current flow. The amount

of current passing through a load depends upon the source voltage (VA) and the resistance of the

load. In series circuit, we found that the equivalent circuit resistance equalled the sum of the

individual resistance. In a parallel circuit, the equivalent resistance is less than the resistance of

the lowest branch, and the total current is larger than the current through any single branch.

resistance (RE), applied across the voltage source. Once you determine RE, you can find the total

circuit current.

One way to find the equivalent resistance of a two-resistor parallel circuit is the product-

over-sum method. For example, in Figure 1.2-1, R1 and R2 are connected in parallel. With the

product-over-sum method, RE can be found as shown below.

R1 xR2

RE

R! R2

500 x1000

RE

500 1000

500 ,000

RE

1,500

RE 333

When more than two resistors are in parallel, use the reciprocal method to find the equivalent

resistance. The reciprocal of resistance is conductance. If resistance represents an opposition to

current flow, then conductance represents a lack of opposition to current flow. (The unit of

resistance is the ohm, ; the unit of conductance is the Siemens, S). Resistance is a measure of

how much opposition is present; conductance is a measure of how little opposition is present.

With respect to current flow, a higher resistance means less current, but a higher conductance

means more current. With the reciprocal method, you use conductance to find equivalent

resistance.

A reciprocal is a mathematical term in which a given value is used as a denominator under the

numerator 1. The reciprocal of a 500 resistor is expressed as follows.

1 1

Reciprocal : G

R 500

Conductance : G 0.002S

You can use one of the two following formulas to find the equivalent of a number of resistors in

parallel, where RN is the last resistor in the circuit.

Figure 1.2-2 has a parallel resistive circuit with three resistors. Using the reciprocal method, you

can find the equivalent resistance.

Notice that the equivalent resistance (RE) is less than the lowest resistance value in the parallel

branch (R1 at 500 ).

1.2.5 Materials/Equipment

1- DC FUNDAMENTALS Circuit Board

2- 15 Vdc Power Supply

1- Multimeter

1.2.6 Procedure/s

1. Turn off the power sources. Insert the DC FUNDAMENTALS circuit board into the base

unit. Do not turn on the power sources at this time.

2. Using the resistor color code, record the value of R1, R2, and R3 in the PARALLEL

CIRCUIT circuit block.

NOTE: Make individual resistance measurements without two-post connectors in place.

4. Connect the circuit shown in Figure 1.2-3. Note the placement of the two post

connectors. Calculate the equivalent resistance (RE) in the parallel circuit consisting of R1

and R2 by using the productoversum method.

RE = 1760

5. Measure and record RE. Verify that your measured value is the same as your calculated

value.

RE = 1767

6. Place CM switch 6 in the ON position. Measure and record the value of R1, R2 and RE.

R1 = 9940 R2 =2148 RE =1766

7. Did R1 and R2 increase, decrease, or remain the same? remained the same________

8. How did the change in the circuit affect the equivalent resistance? No change. Or simply,

it did not affect the equivalent resistance

9. Is the equivalent resistance less than the lowest resistor value in either branch? __Yes___

10. Place CM switch 6 in the OFF position, then connect the circuit shown in Figure 1.2-4.

11. When more than two resistors are parallel circuit, use the reciprocal method to find RE.

Calculate RE.

RE = 1277

12. Confirm your calculation by measuring and recording RE. Your calculated and measured

value may not be equal but should be nearly the same.

RE = 1279

13. Place CM switch 5 in the ON position. Measure and record RE, R1, R2, and R3.

RE = 921 R1 = 2474 R2 =2148 R3 = 4620

14. One resistance value (not including RE) has changed. Which one, and has it increased or

decreased? ___It is the R1 and it has increased__________________________________

15. How did this change affect the equivalent resistance of the circuit (measured in step 13)?

________It has decreased the equivalent resistance of the circuit because of high

resistance.____________________

16. Is the equivalent resistance less than the lowest resistor value of any branch? _____It is

less than the lowest resistor value of any branch._________________________________

17. Place CM switch 5 in the OFF position.

CONCLUSION:

The equivalent resistance was computed by reciprocating the algebraic sum of the

reciprocal values of the parallel resistors.

In, addition, turning the circuit modification switch could give us a lesser value for

resistor.

Turning on the switch modification no. 15 to have an open circuit on the third

resistor.
