Demonstrate the advantage and disadvantages of series and parallel circuits

Electric Current The rate which charges pass charges pass through a given point; measured in amperes
Potential Difference The difference in potential energy between two points
Voltage The potential difference between two points; measured in volts
Insulator A material that does not conduct heat of electrical energy well; often used to prevent energy from leaving a particular area
Circuit A closed path through which electricity can flow
Load A device in a circuit that does not work using electrical energy
Conductor A material that allows heat or electrical energy to flow through it easily
Resistor An object added to a circuit that restricts the flow of electrical energy; inhibits the flow of electric current by producing a voltage drop when current passes through it
Switch A device used to control the flow of current through a circuit
Series Ciruit A circuit in which the parts are joined one after another such that the current in each part is the same
Parallel Circuit A circuit in which the parts are joined in branches such that the potential difference across each part is the same
