Constant voltage, battery, and constant current

What do you call the parts of a circuit?

Components or elements/branches

What is a mesh?

“Gaps” in circuits

What is a loop?

A closed path going through circuit elements

Which terminals does current go into and out of?

Current goes in the + terminal and out of the - terminal
