Requirements

This activity introduces a sequence of all-resistor DC circuits in which one of the resistors is either open (i.e., infinite resistance) or short-circuited (zero resistance). The challenge in each case is to locate the faulted resistor with as few measurements as possible, and to identify the nature of the fault. The circuits increase in complexity from level to level, making the diagnostic problem more and more difficult. The fault in the circuit is chosen at random each time you run it, so you can repeat each level for more practice.
