Science chapter 6

Don't know

How is electric current made? when electric charges are made to flow through a material they provide an electric current
Electric Circuit a compete, unbroken path that charges can flow through
What affects current flow? current flow is effected by energy of the properties of the objects that charges flow through
Voltage the difference in electric potential energy per charge between two points in a circuit
The more resistance = less current
How do you calculate electric power? power= voltage x current
Power the rate at which energy is transformed from one form to another
Field Line shows the force that would be exerted on a positive charge at any point along that line
Electric Force the force between charged objects
What do single charges have? straight field lines
Static Electricity buildup of charges on an object
Polarization the electrons react to electric fields resulting in individual atoms having charged ends that are attracted to charged objectives
Electric Potential Energy the differences causes charges to flow through wires
Properites of an object affect current flow
Conducting Wires the path of current in a circuit is completed by these
Is energy always lost in a circuit? no, energy is conserved
Do objects have some overall charge? no, objects have no overall charge
Grounded a circuit connected to earth with a three-pronged plug

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:

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.
