Single-Source Circuit Implementation

Design Challenge, Problem 2

This exercise uses concepts introduced in our experiment relative to implementing circuits with a single source. A link to this experiment is provided at the right.

Implement the circuit shown below on your breadboard. Measure the current I and the voltage V.

Expected values for current and voltage are:

• V = 1.67V
• I = -0.167mA

Compare your measured values with these expectations. Calculate a percent error between your measurements according to the formula:

${\rm{\% Error = }}\left. {\left| {\frac{{Measured - Expected}}{{Expected}}} \right.} \right| \times 100$

The vertical bars mean “absolute value”. The percent error will, therefore, always be positive. Comment on the agreement between your values and the expectations.
