 Light Bulb Resistance
Light Bulb Resistance
Added by Craig Napier on Dec 15, 2008
This activity uses circuit models to show that a bulb's resistance will increase with increasing current, and explains that this is due to the bulb filament warming up. Pupils should be able to analyse their results by scaling and plotting a line graph, and describe a graph with a dependent variable that has a decreasing rate of increase.
This item teaches:
 about the relationship between the resistance of a bulb and the current flowing through it

Objectives
 The pupils should know that a bulb's resistance increases with increasing current.
 The pupils should know that the resistance increase is due to the bulb filament warming up.
 The pupils should be able to scale and plot a line graph from a table.
 The pupils should be able to describe a graph with a decreasing rate of increase of the dependent variable.
