## What is the IV graph for a resistor?

A resistor is one of the simplest electronic devices, and thus has one of the simplest I-V curves. It is a straight line which intercepts the origin and passes through Quadrants I and III – making a resistor a passive device. The current at each voltage is proportional to the resistance following Ohm’s law: I = V / R.

**What is the I-V characteristic of a resistor?**

A resistor R satisfies Ohm’s law I=V/R, so its I-V characteristic goes through the origin and has slope 1/R. A voltage source V_s maintains a fixed voltage drop and can allow any current, so its I-V characteristic is a vertical line at V=V_s.

**What does a straight I-V curve tell you?**

The I-V curve of an ideal voltage source is a straight line parallel to the current (I) axis—i.e., regardless of the current passing through the device, the voltage will not change.

### What is the shape of I-V curve?

Introduction to I−V Curves

As is shown in Figure 1, a standard I−V curve has the shape of a concave curve with nearly no change of current at small voltage, and a sharp decrease of current at a certain voltage point.

**What does IV graph represent?**

Slope of V−I graph represents the Resistance.

**How do Iv graphs work?**

Resistors and filament bulbs

The shape of the I-V graph changes as the temperature of the component increases. When the component becomes hotter, the atoms in the metal lattice vibrate more. More collisions occur between the free electrons and atoms, increasing the resistance.

#### How do you draw an I-V curve?

Plot a graph between VF and IF taking VF on the x-axis and IF on the y-axis. The graph obtained is known as forward bias characteristic curve. Plot a graph between VR and IR taking VR on the negative x-axis and negative IR on the y-axis. The graph obtained is known as reverse bias characteristic curve.

**What happens to the slope of I-V curve for larger resistors?**

If by “larger” you mean greater resistance, then the slope of the curve changes since R = V/I (the slope). If by “larger” you mean physically larger, then nothing is changed to the curve.

**Why I-V curve is important?**

The I-V curve provides a quick and effective means of accessing the true performance of solar PV modules or strings.

## What is slope of IV graph?

the slope of I- V graph shows conductivity of the conductor or we can say inverse of resistance.

**What does the slope of IV graph for a linear resistor represent?**

Slope of a I-V graph for a linear resistor represents its resistance.

### What does the slope of IV graph indicate?

the slope of I- V graph shows conductivity of the conductor or we can say inverse of resistance. Q.

**What does slope of VI graph indicate?**

(b) the slope of the V-I graph represents the resistance of the material. Q.

#### What is the resistance of VI graph?

So we can define resistance (R) as the ratio of voltage across the conductor to the value of current flowing through it. In a V I graph the slope of the curve gives us the resistance of the material. Also, in parallel and series configuration, the minimum resistance is present for the parallel combination of resistors.

**What does the IV graph represent?**

**How do you calculate the slope of an IV curve?**

- Slope of the curve=ΔVΔI=R1=Resistance1.
- Note: Reciprocal of resistance is also called conductance.

## How do you find the series and shunt resistance of an I-V curve?

You can determine the series resistance by calculating the inverse of the slope of the I-V curve at the open circuit voltage and you can determine the shunt resistance from the inverse of the slope of the I-V curve at the short circuit condition V=0.

**How do you find the resistance of a VI curve?**

- From table we see that at voltage 10 V , current I = 5 A.
- Resistance = Voltage / Current.
- From eqn.(2) , we get , Resistance = V / I = 2 Ω

**What do we get from slope of IV graph?**

### What is shunt resistance formula?

As an example, a shunt resistor with a resistance of 1 mΩ is used as the series resistor in an ammeter. The resistor is placed in a circuit, and a voltage drop of 30 mV is measured across the resistor. This means that the current is equal to the voltage divided over the resistance, or: I = V / R = 0.030 / 0.001 = 30 A.

**What is series and shunt resistance?**

The shunt resistance has no effect on the short circuit current while it reduces the open circuit voltage. The series resistance, however, does not change the open circuit voltage but reduces the short circuit current.

**What is the difference between IV and VI graph?**

Both the IV and VI graph shows the relation between potential V, and current I. In VI graph, we take potential at y-axis and current at x-axis. The slope of VI graph give us the resistance. In IV graph, Current is at y-axis and potential is at x-axis.
