Flashcards in Electricity Part 2 Deck (10):
Metals are good conductors. True or false?
Due to their type of bonding, metals have a:
- a fixed positive nucleus
- surrounded by a sea of electrons
- loosely held valence electrons are free to move
A salt solution conducts electricity. True or false?
Insulator materials such as plastic and rubber have?
Electrons that are tightly bound. to individual atoms therefore there are no electrically charged particles that can move.
How is the amount of batteries affected by?
The more batteries the more electricity available
What is the amount of globes affected by?
The more bulbs, the more electrical energy is 'SAVED', thus each bulb has less.
In a SERIES CIRCUIT, components are connected one after another along what?
A series circuit components are connected along a SINGLE CONDUCTING PATHWAY.
In a PARALLEL CIRCUIT, each component is connected how?
In a parallel circuit, the components are SEPARATELY connected to the energy source. Each charge only passes though one source.
The brightness in light globes in electric circuits depends on what?
It depends on how quickly the energy flows through the globe.
