  1. Inventory Mr. Circuit. Deal with poor quality of inventory sheets: Can we find at least one good (original) one?
  2. Rules for Mr. Circuit (See Tom's). Can Ken give us a heads up on other valuable tips?
  3. Label both Vernier Labquest boxes and see if the old greenies can be used.
  4. Calibrate the differential voltage measurement and explain what a differential voltage measurement is all about.
  5. Learn to use Vernier as a time-based voltmeter.
  6. Learn to export to Excel for data analysiss
  7. Make wish list of other things to buy for Vernier.


Mr. Circuit[edit]

Box with battery, wires, breadboard, components. Book called "Discover Electronics". How to set up circuits.

  1. Poor quality inventory sheet. Similar info on 4 and 5. Replacement part list page 75.
  2. Many have missing parts. These are replaced through engineering Teneray.
  3. You may start at the beginning. Rules: Don't plug in battery till you are certain the circuit is comoplete.

Draw actual circuit, at least till you are 100% comfortable drawing circuits. Ken drew first circuit and constructed it.

Found R1. It is a 100&Ohm; reisistor. BrownBlackBrown.


Old Greenies. Calibration is a must. Used power supply need two voltages. Zero, clicked channel 1 potential old green brings up popup whith zero or calibrate. Select calibrate. Button top left: calibrate now. Enter a value left text entry field. Used yellow dmm to verify the ps (they agree). Green: zero -keep. Value entry into number 2 box. Do not exceed 5.5 volts (verified with yellow). Used voltage reading from mm enter into #2. Press keep/ok. Informally swept thru. Ken says each sensor input needs separate calibration.
