  1. When two or more magnetic materials are pulled towards each other due to the forces between opposite poles
    Attract
  2. The energy carried by the current, measured by its difference between two points in a circuit
    Voltage
  3. Two or more connected electrical cells which work together to produce electrical engery
    Battery
  4. when components are in different branches in a circuit. There are different paths for electrons to flow through.
    Parallel
  5. The flow of electricity
    Current
  6. A conducting pathway through which current can flow
    Circuit
  7. An instrument with a magnetised needle which shows direction in relation to earths magnetic poles
    Compass
  8. a type of energy involving charged particles which either build up in one place or flow from one place to another
    Electrical (electricity)
  9. A temporary magnet made by coiling wire around an iron core. When current flows in the coil, the iron becomes a magnet.
    Electromagnet
  10. when components are one after another in a circuit. The electrons flow through the same path.
    Series
  11. Negatively-charged particles which orbit the nucleus of an atom. They can also move from one place to another. E.g flowing to form electrical current.
    Electrons
  12. A build up of electrical charges. This happens when certain materials rub against eacher other and some electrons are transferred from one material to another.
    Static energy
  13. A substance which does not allow electrons to flow through it.
    Insulator
  14. A piece of iron, nickel, cobalt or steel that produces a magnetic field.
    Magnet
  15. When two or more magnetic materials are pushed away from each other due to the forces between similar ('like') poles.
    Repel
