There was a
small variation between the practical resistance values calculated using the
theoretical values of resistance. This slight variation could have been due to
which occur when using the color codes. This method may also not work for those
colorblind. This affects the accuracy of
To Read the First Band, You have to
know the Color-Code which we applied during the
For the first band we have;
To Read the Second Band, You also
need to know the Color-Code for this band and what they
represent as done during the experiment
For our experiment we used the
color codes below;

The Color Code for the Second Band
is Similar to the First Band.
For the third band we used the
following color codes;
This is the Multiplier Value for

resistance in the wire might have caused the discrepancies.
From our experiment, it is found
that the summation of currents approaching any junction is
equivalent to the sum of currents
leaving that junction.
From our experiments it has also
been shown that the summation of voltages round a closed
path or loop is zero.
Part 2: Kirchhoff’s Law
Law shows that the total current or charge going into a junction has the same
as the charge leaving the node because it has no were else to go. ”The
of all currents going
into and out of a node equals zero. This I shown in our experiment
The theoretical and the practical
value are almost the same. The slight variation in the two
values is due to the materials used in the experiment.
A fully discharged capacitor behaves like short circuit,
current without voltage drop.
