The equivalent current and equivalent voltage data across the circuit is accumulated and compared to the theoretical values calculated using Ohm’s Law equation. Eventually the deliberate results are presented in scatter plots. Introduction: A close logical examination of Ohm's experimental work reveals a conceptual structure quite different from that of the electrical science of his time. As a result of this analysis, it is claimed that the conceptual shift in Ohm's experimental work was the basis for the reaction of his contemporaries. When a steady current flow through a conductor, the ratio of potential difference between the ends of the conductor and current flowing through it is constant, provided that the physical condition of conductor that is length, temperature, etc. do not change. George Ohm formulated this theorem, which is considered the most important of the early quantitative descriptions of the physics of electricity and thus is a useful tool for analyzing electric circuits. George Simon Ohm (1787-1854), a German physicist, in 1826 experimentally determined the most basic law relating voltage and current for a resistor. Ohm’s work was initially denied by critics. Born of humble beginnings in Erlangen, Bavaria, Ohm threw himself into electrical research. His efforts resulted in his famous law. He was awarded the Copley Medal in 1841 by the Royal Society of London. In 1849, he was given the professor of Physics chair by the University of
