    • 1). Clamp the gator cables to each end of the multimeter and attach the other end of the gator cables to the solar panel cable leads. Ensure that the polarity is correct; if it is incorrect, the readout will appear as a negative number on the multimeter.

    • 2). Record the base energy output of the solar panel you are using with your notepad and pencil. Test using both voltage and milliamp readings.

    • 3). Activate the laser pointer while directing the beam at the solar cell.

    • 4). Record the voltage and amperage of the solar cell in the notepad.

    • 5). Calculate the voltage and amperage of the laser by subtracting the base readings from the readings taken when the solar cell was receiving the laser beam.
