Name three things you know about a filament. 1. It is a resistor. 2. It is a thin wire. 3. It gets hot and gives off light.
What changes energy to another form? Resistors
Light bulbs, T.V., computers, and filaments are examples of what? Resistors
Give examples of resistors that change electricity to heat. A toaster and a hair dryer.
What is a series circuit? A series circuit is electric charge that flows in one circular path.
True or False In a series circuit, if there is a break in the current the electrical flow stops. true
