Graphing and Excel Homework
These exercises contain examples of data you will encounter during Phys204L/206L. If some terms are
unfamiliar right now, that’s fine. The purpose of this homework is to practice using doing linear fits with
Microsoft Excel (or Google Sheets) and to gain experience with interpreting best-fit equations. You may
use Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets to do the fit.
NOTE: If you need help creating a scatter plot and inserting a linear trendline, use google to find a tutorial,
ask a peer or help, or feel free to see me during my office hours.
Instructions: Complete exercises 1 and 2. Follow all steps for each exercise. Record answers where
instructed to. Staple all graphs to this assignment.

Exercise 1: Ohm’s Law
In this exercise you will practice plotting data, adding a linear trendline and interpreting the data.
According to Ohm’s Law, the potential difference ΔV is related to the current I by the equation
Δ𝑉 = 𝐼𝑅
(Eq 1)
where R stands for resistance. Potential difference is measured in the unit volts, current in amperes (or
amps) and resistance in ohms (using the Greek symbol omega: Ω).
Part A: Making a Scatter Plot
1. Using your favorite spreadsheet program, make a scatter plot of the following dataset:
Use current as the independent (x) variable and potential difference as the dependent (y) variable.
Current, I (A)
Potential Difference, V (V)
0.12
1.3
0.25
2.8
0.30
3.4
0.45
4.9
0.52
5.7
2. Give your graph the title “Ohm’s Law.”
3. Label the x and y axes with the appropriate data labels.
