This resource is an introductory physics lab on Ohm's Law.  In this experiment, students use Pasco DataStudio and lab equipment to measure the resistance and resistivity of resistors and wires.  The software tools aid  students in collecting and plotting data so they can independently and accurately recognize Ohmic devices.  This lab is closely tied with the DataStudio software and will need to be adapted to work with other equipment.  A "Lite" version of DataStudio is available for free download, but would not offer the full array of analytical tools.  This item is part of a larger collection of introductory physics labs by the authors.
