# Electricity

What is static electricity? A small inbalance of positive and negative charge.
What is the two charges? Negative and positive
What is a series circuit? A circuit that has resistors that are arranged in a chain so the current has only one path to take.
What is a parallel circuit? A circuit that has resistors arranged with the heads connected together, and the tails connecteed together.
What is a circuit? Something that goes around in a circle continuously.
In a parallel circuit what happens to the voltage? It stays the same
In a series circuit what happen to the voltage? It can change depending on the resistance
What is the voltage called? The power source
What is the current called? The flow of energy
What does the wires in a circuit carry? It carries the electric current to various parts of an electrical or electronic system.
How do you get the resistance? Add up all resistances to get the total
What is the equation for voltage? V=I*R
You have a circuit with a battery and a resistor. What will happen to the total power if you add a second battery in series? It will increase
A circuit has a current of 50-ampheres when it is connected to a 25-volts source. What is the resistance of this appliance? 0.5 ohm
What do like charges do? repel
What so unlike charges do? attract
What is the difference between neutral object and a charged object? One is exactly zero and the other is charged objects
What is the units of resistance? Ohms
