    Hey guys!
    I came across a few questions to do with drawing a resistance against voltage graphs for filament lamps and a fixed resistor (Question 11b in January 2010 Unit 2 Edexcel). I searched everywhere but could not find any graph like this. Could someone please help me

    The R-V graph for filament lamp is sometimes drawn without the initial straight section but this is more appropriate with relevance to its I-V curve

    It's usually curved as well isn't it? Rather than a sudden change in gradient

    Do you mean the section between the 2 lines? Hmm...it could definitely be argued but I think the ones above work for Alevels. You could consult a teacher/ marking scheme as to what works best for your syllabus component. All I can say is that wouldnt be wrong either.
