Current Electricity

closed circuit complete pathway that electricity flows through
open circuit incomplete path that does NOT let electricity flow through
conductor material that electricity travels through (water, human, metal, air)
insulator material that electricity does NOT travel through (plastic, rubber, wood, concrete, dirt)
series circuit ONE pathway, but it passes through several bulbs before it gets back to the battery;if one bulb is disconnected, they all go out.
parallel circuit circuits that run next to each other; more than one path of electricity and if one bulb is disconnected, the rest stay lit because each circuit has its own connection
Switch something that can stop electricity from flowing and allow electricity to flow; opens or closes a circuit
circuit breaker prevents a fire when too much electricity flows through a closed circuit by breaking and opening the circuit; purpose is to prevent a fire.
