Title: 
Current Dividers 
Course: 
ECET 201001 
Abstract: The aim of this lab is to investigate the concept of current division. Current division is an application of Kirchoff’s Law. A current divider is a simple linear circuit that produces an output circuit that is a fraction of the input current. Current divider is the splitting of current between the branches of dividers.
Introduction: An experiment to verify the properties of current division is presented. The current divider is created using multiple resistors connected in parallel. It is found that if one of the resistors in the divider is greater than the other, more voltage will be dropped across it. It is also found that the greater the resistor is less current will pass through.
Experimental:
Results and Discussions: The calculated, simulated result gave out corresponding values. On the other hand the experimental results prove to be slightly different from the calculated results because we were unable to find the same exact resistors. If this experiment is redone, we can improve by prefinding the resistors before trying to figure the calculations.
Conclusions:
Questions for lab #15:
1.) If all the resistance values in figure 151 were stepped up by a factor of 10, the new current would be
A: (C) Onetenth of their old value
A: (D) None of these
A: (B) I2 only
A: (A) 5.83V
A: Current takes the path of least resistance but in parallel circuits Current flows through all path in an amount inversely proportional to their resistance.
6:) If the current I in figure 151 is kept constant, comment on the effect of varying any single resistor on the branch currents I 3, Iv, I 4
