The nominal resistance R of the resistor used in this experiment was printed on the resistor by the manufacturer. According to the manufacturer, the actual resistance of the resistor should not differ from its nominal value by more than 1%. Does your most accurate measured resistance agree with the nominal resistance value of the resistor to within the limits of uncertainty? Explain

  • Physics -

    My crystal ball is not working in this snowstorm today. Is there more information?

  • Physics -

    No, this is all of the information that is provided.

  • Physics -

    Then you cannot solve it. You have to have a measured resistance, and a nominal resistance to compare it to.
