                                                                                      Green: 5 --.> 00000
                                                                                      Gold: 5%

2. Put three resistors in series (one after the other) as shown. Label each resistor with its value.




3. Measure the overall resistance using the multimeter. Record this value:

4. What principle can you determine about overall resistance from your observations?
