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