• 1. Circuits Series vs. Parallel
• 2. Vocabulary <ul><li>Circuit </li></ul><ul><li>Energy Source </li></ul><ul><li>Load </li></ul><ul><li>Conductor </li></ul><ul><li>Resistor </li></ul><ul><li>Switch </li></ul><ul><li>Series Circuit </li></ul><ul><li>Parallel Circuit </li></ul>
• 3. Circuits <ul><li>A circuit is a path through which electricity can flow. </li></ul><ul><li>Charges flow in a circuit when there is a potential difference. </li></ul>
• 4. Circuits <ul><li>Most circuits have three parts: an energy source , one or more loads , and conductors (wires) that connect the two. </li></ul><ul><li>Circuits may also have a switch that can be opened or closed to allow or stop the flow of current </li></ul><ul><li>Energy flows only through a closed circuit. </li></ul>
• 5. Circuits
• 6. Circuits <ul><li>Energy Source </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Used to push a charge through a circuit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: batteries </li></ul></ul>
• 7. <ul><li>Loads </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Devices in a circuit that operate using electrical energy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: light bulb, toaster, and motors </li></ul></ul>
• 8. Circuits <ul><li>Conductors </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Material that allows electrical energy to flow through it easily. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: wires </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Wires carry electrical current from the energy source to the load that is apart of the circuit. </li></ul></ul></ul>
