Electricity Log By:Hailey Davis Barracudabr igade.blogspot.com
Closed Circuits <ul><li>A closed circuit is a circuit without interruptions providing a continuous path through it. </li></ul>www.sciencephoto.com
Open Circuit <ul><li>An open circuit is an incomplete circuit. </li></ul>www.umd.umich.edu
Homemade Flashlight <ul><li>We used a battery, 2 wires, and a light bulb to make a homemade flashlight. </li></ul>blogs.trb.com
How Does A Light Bulb Work? <ul><li>Well the light bulb needs to be connected to 2 wires or more and a battery. Also it needs to be in some sort of electric current. </li></ul>lonelyconservative.com
Who Invented the light bulb? <ul><li>Thomas Edison invented the light bulb ,but Benjamin Franklin discovered electricity. </li></ul>michaeljournal.org
Insulators <ul><li>Insulators are anything that does not let electricity flow through it. It stops the flow instead of allowing going on and on.
Series Circuit <ul><li>Examples: A series circuit will nightlight, not work if one lig- lamp,and ht bulb is burned flashlight out, unlike the parallel circuit. </li></ul>series+circuit&rls=com.microsoft:en-us
Parallel Circuit <ul><li>A parallel circuit has two flash light bulbs, and four wires connecting the light bulbs together. If you take one out the other still lights.
bedroom light, classroom light, refrigerator and freezer </li></ul>o nlinephys.com
Comparing And Contrasting <ul><li>Parallel and series circuits are the same because they are both electrical and are both circuits.
The parallel and series circuits a different because one of them are the same on both sidesthat is parallel. Series has more than 1 light because it wouldn't be a series circuit with out 2 or more. </li></ul>
How Does Static Electricity Work? <ul><li>Positive and negative electrical charges are separated from each other and are not moving, so that creates static electricity </li></ul>mojosimon.wordpress.com
How Does Lightening Work? <ul><li>Negatively charged clouds creates static electricity, then finally gets too hot and strikes to the ground. The ground is positive and the cloud is negative, and that creates lightening. </li></ul>library.thinkquest.org
Lightening Safety Tips <ul><li>Don't touch or talk on a phone.
