PComp Lab: Electronics & Switches

The first part of this lab helped me to understand a bit more about the difference between volts, amp and ohms, thought I still don’t totally get it.  Here’s me measuring a resistor:

Then I measured the voltage of a circuit:

A basic circuit with a switch:

Then I did components in a series and components in parallel:

And I measure the change in voltage with a potentiometer:

After that I moved on the Switches lab.  I ran out of time today to do a creative switch, so I just did switches in series and switches in parallel.  I’ll have to come back to the creative switch.
