Homework Help: Physics

Posted by TP on Saturday, May 24, 2008 at 10:45am.

I'm doing a report on my experiment right now where you had to test out the voltage and current of 2 resisters and a light globe with an ammeter and voltmeter. We had to graph the results, and the reisistors had a linear relationship between voltage and current, but the light globe is either exponential or power. Can anyone explain why this is? Is it a systematic error?
