Flashcards in P2 Physics - calculating resistance, series circuits, parallel circuits,resistance of components Deck (7)
what is resistance measured in?
when does the resistance in a wire increase
the thickness of the wires decreases
as the length of the wires increases
whats the equation for calculating resistance?
potential difference = current x resistance
what is a series circuit?
components connected one after the other on the same loop
if one lamp breaks in a series circuit, what will happen to the other one?
it wont light
what is a parallel circuit?
components connected on separate loops
