# Electrical circiuts

Question | Answer |
---|---|

Measures the current flowing through a circuit (current is the flow of electrons through a circuit) | Ammetre |

Measures volts. It can test to see if a battery is flat/or going flat (volts help push the current through a circuit) | Voltmetre |

When an appliance is turned on an eleric current flows. An elctric current is actually a flow of electrons (negativly charged particles found in atoms) | Current |

The higher the number of volts the more energy supply that is needed to drive the elecrtons around the circuit. e.g. different light globes. | Voltage |

Is the measure of how difficult it is for a current to move through a wire. | Resistance |

The unit for current is | Ampers (or amps) |

the symbol for current is | A |

The unit for voltage is | Volts |

The symbol for Volts are | V |

The unit for resistance is | Ohms |

The symbol for Resistance is | The grrek letter Omega |

This is a circuit is connect by more than 2 wires, and has 2 or more loads. | Parallel Circuit |

This circuit has only one wire connecting it | Series circuit |

......... is the flow of electrical charge around a circuit. | Current |

An ........ is used to measure this. | Ammetre |

A circuit which has only one path is called a ............... Circuit. | Series. |

A circiut which has 2 or more pathways is called a ............ circiut | Parrallel |
