# Electricity circuits

What is Ohm's law? Current*resistance= Voltage
What is a series circuit? A circuit that has only one way for energy to travel
What is a parallel circuit? A circuit that allows multiple ways for energy to travel
What does every circuit consist of? A power source, conductor wires, and a resistor
What is the difference of a series circuit and a parallel circuit? A parallel circuit has multiple ways of energy travel and a series circuit has one
What is a voltmeter? A devise used to measure voltage, or electrical potential energy
What is ammeter? A devise used to measure current
What is a short circuit? Short circuits is a connection that allows current to take the path of least resistance
What measures help protect people from electrical shocks and short circuits? A measure of current
What is the difference between a circuit breaker and a fuses? A circuit breaker is a reusable safety switch that breaks the circuit when there is a lot of energy a fuse melts when there is too much energy
What does grounded mean Grounded means when charges flow directly from the circuit into the earth.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
