Quiz Series and Parallel

Series 1) one current path 2)current is equalin all component parts of the circuit 3)the total line voltage equals the sum of the volt drops around the circuit loop 4) the total resistance equals the sum of the individual resistance values
Parallel 1)has more than one current path 2)volage is equal at all component parts of the circuit 3) the total line current equals the sum of the branch currents
Parallel 4)The reciprocal of the total resistance is equal to the sum of the reciprocals of the branch resistance 5)The total reistance of the circuit wil be less than the value of the smallest individual resistor
Ohm's Law V=IxR I=V/R R=I/V
Resistance energy move electron give up energy
Electric Circuit 1)Source(force) 2)Path 3)Load
Electron The atomic particle having a negative charge
Proton The atomic particle having a positive charge
Neutron The atomic particle having a neutral charge
Electron and Proton found in the atom's nucleus
Neutron The particle that orbits the nucleus of the atom
Matter anything that has weight and occupies space
Solid, Liquid, Gas Three physical states of matter
Elements, Compounds, Mixtures Three chemical states of matter
Molecule The smallest particle that a compound can be divided into but retain its physical properties
Atom The smallest particle that an element can be divided into but retain its physical properties
Ionization when an electron is torn from a neutral atom, leaving a positive ion, or when an electron is added to a neutral atom, producing a negative ion
Electrical Circuits closed paths designed to cary, manipulate, or control electron flow for some purpose
Energies that change electrical balance the ability to control the movement of electrons, or electron flow is the basis of lectronics. Some common sources of energy causing electron movement or separation of charge
Energies that change electrical balance Friction(static electricity), chemical energy(batteries), mechanical energy(a generator or alternator), magnetic energy, light energy, heat energy
Conductors gold,silver, and copper have many free electrons. These materials conduct electron movement easily because their outmost ring contains one,two or three electrons rather eight electrons needed for atomic stability
Semiconductor materials that are halfway between the conductor's characterisitc of few outmost shell electrons and stable. Semiconductors materials have four outermost ring electrons. Germanium and silicaon are examples of semiconductor materials
Insulator Materials do not allow easily allow electron movement becasue their five to eight outermost shell electrons are tightly bound to the atom. Glass and ceramic are example

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.
