The value of current, I, flowing in a given resistor for the corresponding values of potential difference, V, across the resistor are given below :
{:(I("ampere"),0.5,1.0,2.0,3.0,4.0),(V("volt"),1.6,3.4,6.7,10.2,13.2):}
Polt a graph between V and I and calculate the resistance of the resistor.

The V-I graph is as shown in (Fig.3.35).
For V = 4 V(i.e., 9 V - 5 V),I = 1.25 A(i.e., 2.65 A - 1.40 A). Therefore, R = (V)/(I) = (4 V)/(1.25 A) = 3.2 Omega
The value of r obtained from the garph depends upon the accuracy with which the graph is plotted.
