State two ways that a person can join up the parts in an electric circuit In series In parallel The more bulbs in a series circuit the bulbs will be ...... Dimmer If a bulb is taken out of a parallel circuit will the other bulb light? Yes If a bulb is taken out of a series circuit will the other bulbs light? No What is voltage? This is a measure of how much energy each electron has been given State the unit used to measure voltage Volt (V) What instrument is used to measure voltage? Voltmeter What is current? This is how much electrons pass by each second State the unit used to measure current Amp What instrument is used to measure current? Ammeter What is resistance? This measures how hard it is to move the electrons through something State the unit used to measure resistance Ohm What instrument is used to measure resistance? Ohmmeter State Ohm's Law This states that voltage is directly proportional to the current in a circuit 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 List the three effects of electricity Heat energy Magnetic energy Chemical energy Authormshowley ID152350 Card SetScience - Series & Parallel Circuits DescriptionSeries & Parallel Circuits Updated2012-05-05T20:26:22Z Show Answers
