Current in a Series Circuit

Task – A student builds a series circuit with a battery and three identical light bulbs. She correctly determines that the circuit will draw.3 A. Between each circuit element she inserts an ammeter. Before closing the switch she predicts what the reading of each ammeter will be as shown in the next slide. What if anything is wrong with her prediction?

.3 A.2 A.1 A 0.0 A

What if anything is wrong with the predicted values of the ammeter readings? A. Nothing the predictions are correct B. The values are correct but the order of the readings should be reversed C. The readings should all be the same D. The readings should be greater on the outer ammeters E. The readings should be greater in the middle

How confident are you about your answer? A. I know I’m right B. I’m pretty sure C. Neutral D. I’m mostly guessing E. I’m completely guessing
