# Please give observations on activities in Practical Physics Subject.(CBSE CLASS 12)
Activities are:
Section A
1. To determine resistance per cm of a given wire by plotting a graph for potential difference versus current.
2. To find resistance of a given wire using metre bridge and hence determine the resistivity (specific resistance) of its material.

3. To verify the laws of combination (series) of resistances using a metre bridge.

Section -B

1. To find the value of *v *for different values of *u *in case of a concave mirror and to rind the focal length.

2. To find the focal Length of a convex mirror, using a convex lens.

3. To find the focal Length of a convex lens by plotting graphs between *u *and *v *or between *1/u *and *1/v. *

*and 1 experiment *To determine refractive index of a glass slab using a travelling microscope.

### Section A:
1. The graph in the activity is potential difference versus the resistance.
So, we need an apparatus where these two elements are available. To determine resistance implies that the apparatus will be that of Ohm's Law.
Hence, after setting up the apparatus, the following observations can be made.
1) Voltage across the wire as noted by the voltmeter.
2) Current through the wire as noted by the ammeter.
Now, by varying the battery the potential difference will be varied and so will the current.
So, the table for the observation will have Sr. No as column 1, voltage as column 2 and current as column 3.
After noting the values, the graph can be plotted with current on x-axis and voltage on y-axis. What one should get is a straight line by joining all the points on the graph. Once that is done take the slope of the graph. The slope will give you the resistance of the wire.
After calculating the resistance find the length of the wire in centimetres with the help of a ruler. When you get the length just divide the resistance (slope) with the length. You will get the final result as resistance per cm for the wire.
