# Self-Test 1 Q&A 3-4

### Self-Test Questions Volume 1

What is the relationship of the current to the voltage and resistance in a DC circuit according to Ohm’s law? The current in amperes is equal to the emf in volts divided by resistance in ohms.
What are the three characteristics of a DC-series circuit? The total resistance is the sum of the individual resistors. The same current flows in each part of the circuit. The applied voltage will divide among the resistors according to their resistance.
What is the rule that pertains to the total current in a parallel circuit? In a parallel circuit, the total current equals the sum of the current in the branches.
Define Kirchhoff’s voltage law. The algebraic sum of the voltages around a closed loop must equal zero.
The ability to do work measured in joules. Energy
The production of motion against a resisting force measured in joules. Work
The rate of doing work measured in watts. Power
That which produces a change in motion of a body measured in dynes. Force
What formula is used to compute power in a DC circuit when you only know resistance and current? P = I^2 x R
In a parallel circuit having four equal lamps, with an applied voltage of 120 volts and a total current flow of 4 amperes, what is the power consumed at each lamp? 120 watts.

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.
