Circuit Diagrams 13.1 An electric circuit can be represented using a diagram. Each part of the circuit is represented with a symbol. By reading a circuit diagram, it is possible to determine how the circuit works and how to repair it when it does not function properly. circuit diagram

Circuit Diagrams 13.1 Conductors circuit diagram

Circuit Diagrams 13.1 Energy Sources circuit diagram

Circuit Diagrams 13.1 Loads circuit diagram

Circuit Diagrams 13.1 Switch circuit diagram

Circuit Diagrams 13.1 Using the proper symbols, draw a circuit diagram showing: 1 cell 1 light bulb 1 open switch on the negative side of the bulb circuit diagram

Series Circuits 13.1 In a series circuit, electrons flow through only one path. Loads are connected in a chain, one after another in one continuous loop. When one load does not work, the whole chain of loads stops working because electrons cannot flow. series circuit

Series Circuits 13.1 series circuit

Parallel Circuits 13.1 In a parallel circuit, electrons can flow through more than one path. Loads are connected in different branches that are connected to the energy source. When a load does not work in one branch, the loads in the other branches continue to function because electrons can flow through another path. parallel circuit

Parallel Circuits 13.1 parallel circuit

Ex 1) Draw a circuit diagram showing an electric cell, a switch, and 3 lamps connected in series

Ex 2) Draw a circuit diagram showing a cell battery with 3 lamps connected in parallel. Include a switch for controlling each lamp.
