- Set up a circuit in such a way that you can measure the current through a wire.
- Measure the diameter of wire and then connect it between the clips or wire holder.
- Increase the current slowly until the wire breaks
- Record this current.
- Repeat the experiment for a different lengths of wire and different types of wire.
- Now test the current (I0) when a current
close to that of the previously measured when
current is suddenly applied (Im).
