Measuring circuits of resistors connected in series and in parallel . Level 2 - Practices 3 and 4

In level 2, the theory of circuits is established to introduce series and parallel connections in order to proceed to the making of practices 3 and 4. In the first one, practice 3, the assembly of a three resistors series circuit is proposed using VISIR. Once the measurement is made, the same three resistors are selected in order to be connected in parallel. In both measurements, series and parallel equivalent resistors will be calculated firstly, to be then compared with the calculated ones. A subsequent errors analysis will be made.
