Personal Safety: In this lab we will be dealing with high voltage currents as well as currents of up to 2 amperes. Currents as low as 100 mA can be lethal (Wikipedia) so proper caution is essential.
Equipment Safety: The power supply for the heating element should not exceed 6.3V. Ensure all equipment is undamaged and hooked up properly before applying any currents. A not pasted to the top of one of the digital multimeters indicates it is possibly broken, signed Steve Koch and dated January, 2009.
