##### METAL

Measure the dependence of the resistance of metal wires to a temperature of at least 12 different temperatures in the range of temperatures from –5 °C to 65 °C.

Obtained values plotted on graph and qualitatively compare the shape obtained depending

*R*_{k}(*t*) with the theory.Calculate the average resistance coefficient of metal under examination.

fits in a spreadsheet dependence

*R*_{k}(*t*) of linear regression equation. From coefficients of equation (*y = a.x + b*) determine the temperature coefficient of resistance, or resistivity at 0 °C.Both the values of temperature coefficient of resistance (section 3 and 4) compare to each other and you know if that examined metal was platinum, and compare with the tabulated value.

##### SEMICONDUCTOR

Measure the dependence of a semiconductor thermistor resistance at temperature for at least 12 different temperatures in the range of temperatures from –5 °C to 65 °C.

Obtained values plotted on graph and qualitatively compare the shape obtained depending

*R*_{k}(*t*) with the theory.Calculate the average temperature coefficient β for the semiconductor under consideration.

Construct in a spreadsheet the graph of

**ln**[*R*_{p}(*T*)] to^{1}/_{T}. From equation coefficients (*y = a.x + b*) determine the temperature coefficient β of semiconductors, or resistivity at 0 °C.Both the values of temperature coefficient β (section 3 and 4) compare to each other. From average value of β determine the activation energy ΔE of used semiconductors - convert it to eV.

Run the remote experiment.

Use the controls (see below), gradually set the temperature of different elements.

Read temperature and store the measured values of resistance in the selected moments.

Save the experimental values to the HDD on your PC after measurement of the required data and exit remote experiment.

Open the obtained CSV file in a spreadsheet.

**METAL:**By the formula (2) determine the values of coefficient of metal resistance and averages them.plot the dependence of metal resistance in the above chart and data proloÅ¾Ãme of linear regression equation (

*b*_{k}has direct relevance to the value of*R*_{0}resistance element of used at 0 °C.emperature coefficient of electrical resistance α is obtained by dividing the coefficients of of linear regression:

We return to the chart and we obtain linear regression equation (

*b*_{p}has the meaning of**ln**(*R*_{0}). We determine from it the value of*R*_{0}- we can observe with the experimentally determined value at 0 °C.Regression coefficient

*a*_{p}has the importance of finding value and we obtain the value of activation energy Δ*E*by relationship Δ*E*= β.*k*(*k*- Boltzmann constant).We can interspace the experimental values of electrical resistance of the two elements obtained dependencies with completed parameters:
