- 1. S.MORRIS 2006 ELECTRICAL CIRCUITSELECTRICAL CIRCUITS More free powerpoints at www.worldofteaching.com
- 2. The CELLThe CELL The cell stores chemical energy and transfers it to electrical energy when a circuit is connected. When two or more cells are connected together we call this a Battery. The cells chemical energy is used up pushing a current round a circuit.
- 3. What is an electric current? An electric current is a flow of microscopic particles called electrons flowing through wires and components. + - In which direction does the current flow? from the Negative terminal to the Positive terminal of a cell.
- 4. simple circuitssimple circuits Here is a simple electric circuit. It has a cell, a lamp and a switch. To make the circuit, these components are connected together with metal connecting wires. cell lampswitch wires
- 5. simple circuitssimple circuits When the switch is closed, the lamp lights up. This is because there is a continuous path of metal for the electric current to flow around. If there were any breaks in the circuit, the current could not flow.
- 6. circuit diagramcircuit diagram cell switchlamp wires Scientists usually draw electric circuits using symbols;
- 7. circuit diagramscircuit diagrams In circuit diagrams components are represented by the following symbols; cell battery switch lamp ammeter voltmeter buzzer resistor variable resistor fixed resistor
- 8. types of circuittypes of circuit There are two types of electrical circuits; SERIES CIRCUITS PARALLEL CIRCUITS
- 9. The components are connected end-to-end, one after the other. They make a simple loop for the current to flow round. SERIES CIRCUITS If one bulb ‘blows’ it breaks the whole circuit and all the bulbs go out.
- 10. PARALLEL CIRCUITS The current has a choice of routes. The components are connected side by side. If one bulb ‘blows’ there is still be a complete circuit to the other bulb so it stays alight.
- 11. measuring current Electric current is measured in amps (A) using an ammeter connected in series in the circuit. A
- 12. measuring current A A This is how we draw an ammeter in a circuit. SERIES CIRCUIT PARALLEL CIRCUIT
- 13. measuring voltage The ‘electrical push’ which the cell gives to the current is called the voltage. It is measured in volts (V) on a voltmeter V
- 14. measuring voltage V This is how we draw a voltmeter in a circuit. SERIES CIRCUIT PARALLEL CIRCUIT V
