Click on the ELECTRIC CIRCUITS banners below to watch the YouTube videos on Electric Circuits. While watching the videos, write down the answers to the questions on the right side of the link. The answers to the questions from each of the 3 sections of the unit will account for 70% of your unit grade. When you complete each section, submit your answers via the link below. The link will send you to a Google Forms document where you will input your answers to the section's questions. Unit assessments will be released on Thursdays. After you have submitted your answers for each of the 3 sections AND the unit assessment, you will receive a grade for the unit.
Your answers to the questions below need to be manually submitted via a Google Forms document, using the link (button) on the right.
AC stand for ______________ Current & DC stands for _____________ Current.
Current is designated with the letter “I” and is a measure of the _________ of ______________ around a circuit and is measured in ___________.
Potential Difference is designated with the letter “V” and is a measure of the _________ driving the _________ of electrons and is measured in ___________.
Resistance is designated with the letter “R” and is _____________ that resists or opposes the _________ of electrons and is measured in ___________.
The larger line on the “cell” or “battery” symbol represents the positive side and the shorter line represents the negative end of the battery. Even though it is a bit weird, electrons always flow from the ______________ side to the ______________ side, but the current always flows from ______________ to ______________.
In a Series Circuit, if one component is disconnected or broken, the whole circuit will ______________ ___________, the potential difference is ______________ across all of the components, the current is ______________ everywhere in the circuit, and the total resistance equals the ______________ of the individual resistances of each component.
The most important equation in electricity is Ohm’s Law which is ______________.
In a Parallel Circuit, if any one component breaks, the overall circuit is still ______________, each component gets its full potential difference, and current is ______________ between all of the ______________.
In a Parallel Circuit, loops that have ______________ resistance take a lower share of the current and the more components we have in parallel, the ______________ the total resistance.
