Question | Answer |
---|---|

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 |
