58   physics - circuit measuring 58 physics - circuit measuring Presentation Transcript

  • [ Name ] [ Date ] Measuring Circuits
  • Ammeters are used to measure the current (in amperes) in different parts of series & parallel circuits. When measuring, they are connected in series with the component that you are observing.
  • A A SERIES CIRCUIT PARALLEL CIRCUIT
  • Remember that in a series circuit, the current is the same everywhere. In a parallel circuit, the current is shared between the components, so is not always equal 2A 2A 2A 2A2A 1A 1A
  • Copy the following circuits and fill in the missing ammeter readings. ? ? 4A 4A 4A 3A? ? 1A ? 3A 1A 1A
  • Voltmeteres are used to measure the voltage (in volts) in different parts of series & parallel circuits. When measuring, they are connected in parallel with the component that you are observing.
  • SERIES CIRCUIT PARALLEL CIRCUIT V V
  • Remember that in a series circuit, the voltage is distributed across the components. In a parallel circuit, the voltage is equal in each component. 1.5V 1.5V 3V 3V 3V 3V
  • Copy the following circuit diagram and fill in the missing current and voltage readings V V 6V 4A A A
  • Copy the following circuit diagram and fill in the missing current and voltage readings 3V 3V 6V 4A 4A 4A
  • V V 6V 4A A A A Copy the following circuit diagram and fill in the missing current and voltage readings
  • 6V 6V 6V 4A 4A 2A 2A Copy the following circuit diagram and fill in the missing current and voltage readings
