Basic parts of a circuit: Load (Receiver) (light bulb) Power Source (battery) Wires Switch
LOAD (Receiver): The part of the circuit that changes electrical energy into another form of energy. Example: electrical energy is transformed by the load of the light bulb to light and thermal energy when the light is turned on.
Reality Check: What is a simple circuit? How does electricity flow through a simple circuit to produce heat, light, and sound?
