Vernier Differential Voltage Probe

Order code: DVP-BTA
Purchase QTY: (Each)1+    
Scientrific's price  $82.00    
Note: Prices do NOT include GST

With a range of ±6.0 V this system is ideal for use in "battery and bulb" circuits. Use it with the Current Probe to explore Ohm's law, phase relationships in reactive components and much more. Use multiple Differential Voltage Probes to explore series and parallel circuits.

The Differential Voltage Probe reports the potential difference between the red and black leads. For example, if the black terminal is attached to something that is 2V above ground and the red to something that is 3V below ground, it will report -5 V. The Differential Voltage Probe is the preferred voltage sensor in cases where more than one voltage sensor will be used in the same circuit.

    Vernier Differential Voltage Probe DVP-BTA Tech Tips

    This product is used in teaching these Australian Curriculum codes:
    ACSSU190 - Physical Sciences - Energy Conservation - Energy conservation in a system can be explained by describing energy transfers and transformations
    ACSPH044 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - Circuit analysis and design involve calculation of the potential difference across, the current in, and the power supplied to, components in series, parallel and series/parallel circuits
    ACSPH039 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - Energy is conserved in the energy transfers and transformations that occur in an electrical circuit
    ACSPH041 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - Energy is required to separate positive and negative charge carriers; charge separation produces an electrical potential difference that can be used to drive current in circuits
    ACSPH042 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - Power is the rate at which energy is transformed by a circuit component; power enables quantitative analysis of energy transformations in the circuit
    ACSPH043 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - Resistance for ohmic and non­ohmic components is defined as the ratio of potential difference across the component to the current in the component
    ACSPH040 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - The energy available to charges moving in an electrical circuit is measured using electric potential difference, which is defined as the change in potential energy per unit charge between two defined points in the circuit
    ACSCH103 - Equilibrium acids and redox reactions - Oxidation and reduction - A range of reactions, including displacement reactions of metals, combustion, corrosion, and electrochemical processes, can be modelled as redox reactions involving oxidation of one substance and reduction of another substance
    ACSCH104 - Equilibrium acids and redox reactions - Oxidation and reduction - Oxidation can be modelled as the loss of electrons from a chemical species, and reduction can be modelled as the gain of electrons by a chemical species; these processes can be represented using half­ equations
    ACSCH106 - Equilibrium acids and redox reactions - Oxidation and reduction - The relative strength of oxidising and reducing agents can be determined by comparing standard electrode potentials
    ACSPH110 - Gravity and electromagnetism - Electromagnetism - A changing magnetic flux induces a potential difference; this process of electromagnetic induction is used in step­up and step­down transformers, DC and AC generators, and AC induction motors
    ACSPH111 - Gravity and electromagnetism - Electromagnetism - Conservation of energy, expressed as Lenz’s Law of electromagnetic induction, is used to determine the direction of induced current
    ACSSU155 - Physical Sciences - Energy Forms - Energy appears in different forms, including movement (kinetic energy), heat and potential energy, and energy transformations and transfers cause change within systems
