  16. Current flowing through a component in a circuit is measured in 
    Amperes (A) using an ammeter connected in a series with a component 
  17. The current through a component depends on 
    It's resistance 
  18. The greater the resistance the ...... The current per a given p.d. Across the component 
    Lower 
  19. Adding extra bulbs in series add 
    Extra resistance this decreases the current 
  20. The p.d. Across a component is measured in 
    Volts (V) using a voltmeter 
  21. The p.d. Provided by cells connected in a series is the
    Sum of the p.d. Of each cell (depending on the direction in which they are connected)
  22. The resistance of a component can be found by measuring the
    Current through and the potential difference across the component for formula is I = V/R
  23. V represents the
    Potential difference and th unit is volts (V)
  24. I represents the
    Current and the unit is amperes (A)
  25. R represents
    • Resistance and the units are ohms 
    • Image Upload
  26. If the resistance is 5 and the current is 10 what is p.d.
    • I = V/R 
    • 5 = V/10
    • 5 * 10 = V 
    • 50 V = V
  27. if  the resistance is 25 and the p.d. is 100 what is the current
    • I = V/R 
    • I = 100/25 
    • I = 4 A 
  28. if the current is 1.5 and the p.d. is 3 what is the resistance
    • I = V/R 
    • 1.5 = 3/R 
    • 1.5R = 3 
    • R = 3/1.5 
    • R = 2 ohms 
  29. the p.d. across a compnent in a circuit is measured in 
    volts (V) using a voltmeter connected across the component 
  30. ammeters are always connected in 
    series even in a parallel circuit
  31. voltmeters are always connected in 
    parallel with a compenent even in a series circuit 
  32. the p.d. provided by cells connected in a series is 
    the sum of the p.d. of each cell (depending on the direction in which they are connected)
