Title: What is Ohmic? I-V Characteristics of a Diode vs. a Resistor
Url: http://matse1.matse.illinois.edu/sc/d.html
Publisher: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering
Description: The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this activity as a vehicle to examine the I-V characteristics of a diode versus a resistor. The exercise will measure the voltage drop across both a diode and a resistor as voltage is varied. The students will then discover the relationship between current and voltage.

The lesson includes step by step directions for the experiment.
The activity should require about 40-50 minutes of class time to complete.
