  1. State two ways that a person can join up the parts in an electric circuit
    In series

    In parallel
  2. The more bulbs in a series circuit the bulbs will be ......
    Dimmer
  3. If a bulb is taken out of a parallel circuit will the other bulb light?
    Yes
  4. If a bulb is taken out of a series circuit will the other bulbs light?
    No
  5. What is voltage?
    This is a measure of how much energy each electron has been given
  6. State the unit used to measure voltage
    Volt (V)
  7. What instrument is used to measure voltage?
    Voltmeter
  8. What is current?
    This is how much electrons pass by each second
  9. State the unit used to measure current
    Amp
  10. What instrument is used to measure current?
    Ammeter
  11. What is resistance?
    This measures how hard it is to move the electrons through something
  12. State the unit used to measure resistance
    Ohm
  13. What instrument is used to measure resistance?
    Ohmmeter
  14. State Ohm's Law
    This states that voltage is directly proportional to the current in a circuit
  15. Explain the difference between direct and alternating current
    Direct current is current flowing in one direction only

    Alternating current is current that changes direction many times a second
