The resistance of all pure metals increases with rise in temperature and decreases with lowering the temperature. This model helps you to verify the same. The model comes with a small coil of GI wire with connecting pin soldered. The model operates with 1.5V DC supply. After making complete circuit connections, if you heat the coil using candle flame, you will notice change in intensity of the bulb connected in the circuit. This change in intensity of the bulb indicates the change in resistance of the coil given.
Heating Effect Of Current
When current is allowed to flow through a conductor, it gets heated up. This model allows you to experience the same. The model comes with stainless steel wire fixed between two acrylic pole with electrical circuit provision to pass current through it.
Two connecting pins with crocodile clips and small quantity of wax are provided with model. Fix two small pieces of wax at opposite ends of the wire and complete the circuit connection by connecting clips to the ends of the wire, and insert the cells in cell holder. You will notice that the wax melts down immediately indicating the heating up of the wire.
Power Loss In Transmission
A tremendous amount of electricity that power plants generate is wasted by resistance in the transmission wire that carry the electricity, from the plant to our houses. This model gives you the live action of the same. Two connecting pins with crocodile clips are provided with model. Cells not included. After making complete electrical connection, the bulb which is connected directly to the supply glows with the more intensity where as another bulb which is connected through wire glows with less intensity indicating electricity being wasted due to transmission lines.

This model helps you to understand how mechanical energy is being converted into electrical energy. This model has provision to show how both alternating current and direct current are produced by rotating an armature in a magnetic field. The AC and DC generated in this model can be observed by connecting a galvanometer at suitable terminals (Galvanometer not included).
Working Of A Diode
Diode s are components that allow current to flow in only one direction. They have a positive and negative side. When the voltage on the positive side is higher than that of negative side, the current flows through the diode. When voltage is lower on positive side than the negative side, then the current does not flow. Using this simple model you can verify the same.
