Circuit and Light

Science Circuit

energy ability to do work
conductor material that allows heat energy or electricity to pass through easily
flow passage of electrons in a closed circuit
electric current constant flow of electrons through a conductor
electric circuit complete pathway of conductors that electrons flow through
insulator material that does not let heat or electricity pass through easily
series circuit consists of batteries, wires, and a device
parallel circuit cross-wired circuit that is found in all homes
light a form of energy that travels in waves and can move through empty space where there is no air
opaque not transparent or translucent; impenetrable to light; not allowing light to pass through
reflection the bouncing back of light rays from a surface
refraction the bending of light rays as they move from one material into another material
translucent permitting light to pass through but diffusing it so that persons,objects, etc., on the opposite side are not clearly visible
transparent having the property of transmitting rays of light through its substance so that bodies situated beyond or behind can be distinctly seen
force a push or pull
pull exert force on (someone or something), typically by taking hold of them, in order to move or try to move them toward oneself or the origin of the force.
