Photovoltaic Cell Take-Home Experiment

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

For this take-home experiment, students conduct an experiment to determine the load resistance at which a photovoltaic cell yields the highest power output and measure that output. An understanding of the relationship between voltage, current, resistance and power is key to this experiment.
