# Circuit Test

What are Volts? Units for electric potential, which is analogous to pressure.
What is current? The rate at which charge is moving through a circuit.
What is resistance? Measured in Ohms, lowers current at given ^V
What are joules A unit of charge
What is a ohmic resistor? type of resistor where current changes predictably with different ^V's
Series circuit Circuit where all of the current must follow the same path.
Parallel circuit circuit with two or more paths from high to low potential.
Coulombs A unit of charge
Short Circuit A circuit where a connection is accidentally made without a resistor in the circuit.
How to tell if a resistor is Ohmic When the voltage goes up current goes up. Straight lines equals Ohmic.
How to find higher resistance Steeper equals higher resistance
How would you tell if a resistor is Ohmic A resistor is Ohmic if it is a straight line on the graph. The resistance doesn't change even when the voltage changes.
The current through parallel resistors compared to the total current is expected to be : Half the total
The current through parallel resistors compared to each other is expected to be: The same
The difference between resistors wired in series is expected to be: voltage/current
The current through resistors wired in a series compared to the total current through he circuit is expected to be: The same
The current through resistors wired in a series compared o each other is expected to be: The same
Resistance equation: R=V/I
Current equation: I=V/R
Voltage equation: V=IR

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.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
