#### Transcript of Electric Circuits

Use this to get ready for the Circuit Project
Vocabulary
1. Schematic -
B) A parallel circuit with -
Use the following vocabulary and diagrams to complete Part 1
Diagrams
Electric Circuits
So... Draw these:
Now, some parallel circuits
E) A parallel circuit with -
A) A Series circuit with -
So, put it all together
A
drawing
of an electric circuit
2. Electricity -
The
flow
of electrons
3. Electric Circuit
A closed loop of electric flow.
A circle
.
Vocabulary
4. Conductor -
A material that
allows
electrons to pass easily.
5. Insulator -
A material that
prevents
the flow of electrons.
6. Resistor -
A material that makes it
difficult
for electrons to flow.
Vocabulary
7. Series Circuit -
A circuit set so that electricity must flow through
all
devices.
8. Parallel Circuit -
A circuit set so that the electricity has a
choice
of which devices to flow through.
- Conductor
(a wire)
Draw the following diagrams, along with their explanations.
1)
2)
- Battery
- In science it is known as a
dry cell
, no water
Diagrams
3) Switch (gate) -
closed, light on
open, light off
4) Fuse -
Designed weak spot
Diagrams
5) Light or lamp -
6) Ground
Diagrams
7) No connection, just 2 wires crossing
8) Connection, electricity can flow different ways.
Important for parrallel circuits!
1) Draw the following schematics.
2) When you get the hang of it...
...try to draw them
before
looking at my version.
- 3 lights, 1 battery and 1 switch
Part 2
That's it!
But, this will probably only get you a 'PASS' on the proficiency.
I encourage you to start trying to draw them
first
, then look at my version.
This will
learn to do it faster.
- 3 lights
- 3 switches
1 battery
Only 1 light on,
this one
- - -
C) A series circuit with -
- 4 lights
- 1 battery
- 1 switch
D) A series circuit with -
- 4 lights
- 1 battery
- 2 switches
No, I am not going to do it for you. Figure it out on your own.
- 3 lights
- 1 battery
each with its
own
switch
F) A parallel circuit with -
-1 battery
- 1 switch, 3 lights
- 1 switch, 2 lights
- 1) switch, 1 light
If you want a higher grade -
1) Strive to build good models.
2) Might not be able do that in Summer School, but you will in CPR.
