100
The formula that relates Voltage, Current, and Resistance
What is Ohm's Law
100
This material has free electrons which allows electricity to flow.
What is a Conductor
100
This device opens and closes a circuit (turns it on and off)
What is a Switch
100
This is the unit of Voltage
What are Volts
100
This type of circuit has only one path for electricity to flow
What is a Series Circuit
200
This is how much voltage is needed to make 2 Amps flow through a resistance of 4 Ohms.
What is 8 Volts
200
This material does not have any free electrons so electricity can't flow through it easily.
What is an Insulator
200
In this pattern if one light bulb burns out then they all turn off.
What is a Series Circuit
200
This is the unit of current.
What are Amps
200
This type of circuit has multiple paths for electricity to flow
What is a Parallel Circuit
300
A voltage of 6 volts is applied to a resistance of 3 ohms and creates this current...
What is 2 Amps
300
These have no resistance and provide a path for electrons to flow.
What is a Wire
300
In this pattern if one light bulb burns, the other lights stay on still.
What is a Parallel Circuit
300
This is the unit of Resistance
What are Ohms
300
This is when a circuit can't turn on because a path is not connected
What is an Open Circuit
400
A 2 volt battery will create a current of 4 amps when there is this much resistance.
What is 0.5 Ohms
400
This device turns electrical energy into both heat and light energy.
What is a Light Bulb
400
You can do this to your light bulbs by adding more batteries or by taking light bulbs away.
How do you increase brightness?
400
This is stored in the battery and a "dead battery" has run out of it.
What is Energy (or electrical energy)
400
Any circuit where electricity can flow because there is at least one loop back to the battery.
What is a Closed Circuit
500
If you make a graph of voltage vs current, Ohms law says the resistance is found from this part of the graph.
What is the slope
500
Humans are an example of this kind of material. (Conductor, Insulator, Semiconductor)
What is a Semiconductor
500
These are things that can safely put out an electrical fire.
Fire extinguisher, Baking Soda, Fire blanket, Turn off electricity DO NOT EVER USE WATER!!!
500
This is the rate at which energy is used and is measured in Watts (W)
What is Power
500
This type of circuit is how your house is wired. (Hint: When you turn one switch off, does everything else turn off too?)
What is a Parallel Circuit
