The Design and Construction of a Wire Resistance Demonstration Package

Elmer E. Galang

Discipline: Physics

 

Abstract:

The main goal of the study is to design and construct a teaching demonstration tool to show the relationship of the resistance of a conducting wire to its length, diameter, nature of material, and temperature. This demonstration tool is named “Wire Resistance Demonstration Package” and showcases the four demonstration sets. There were three phases in the study: the design phase, construction phase and the testing phase. First, the schematic and design diagrams for the package and its demonstration sets were discussed. In the second phase, construction of the four demonstration sets and the package were discussed. Testing for workability and viability were discussed in the testing phase. Result showed the workability and viability of the four sets
