\$100 Question from H1 Knowledge:
Static electricity means the electrons are not doing what?

\$200 Question from H1 Knowledge: (Medium)
The movement of what part of the atom causes electricity and what is its charge?

\$200 Answer from H1 The part of the atom is the electron
and it is negatively charged.

\$300 Question from H1 Which of the following is not true:
The build up of charges on an object is called static electricity. Static electricity moves in a path. A conductor allows electrons to move through it easily. An insulator does not allow electrons to move through it easily. An atom usually has the same number of plus and minus charges.

\$300 Answer from H1 Which of the following is not true:
A) The build up of charges on an object is called static electricity. B)X Static electricity moves in a path. (does not move) C) A conductor allows electrons to move through it easily. D) An insulator does not allow electrons to move through it easily. E) An atom usually has the same number of plus and minus charges.

\$400 Question from H1 Analysis: (Medium)
What is the relationship of friction in moving clouds, induction and lightning.

\$400 Answer from H1 The movement of clouds and friction
makes static electricity and induction is how it is released down to the earth as lightning.

\$500 Question from H1 Synthesis: Can you elaborate on the reason
why an insurance company would likely not insure someone who had been struck by lightning.

\$500 Answer from H1 Lightning causes extensive nerve and
tissue damage and thus on going health problems for the rest of ones life. or If student mentions preexisting condition and cites multiple health problems give credit.

\$100 Question from H2 Knowledge: (Medium)
A dry cell changes __________ energy to ____________ energy.

\$100 Answer from H2 A dry cell changes chemical energy
to electrical energy.

\$200 Question from H2 Knowledge (Medium)
We call some electrical devices, appliances. Electricians call them __________.

\$200 Answer from H2 We call some electrical devices,

\$300 Question from H2 Application:
A battery switch and bulb are connected by wires. Explain when the circuit would be complete and when it would be incomplete?

\$300 Answer from H2 When the switch is down and letting
electricity through it would be complete, but when it is up and not letting electricity through the circuit would be incomplete.

\$400 Question from H2 Synthesis:
Can you elaborate on the reason why if electricity flows from minus to plus. Why would it not flow from the minus terminal if the positive terminal wire is not connected.

\$400 Answer from H2 Without the positive terminal the electrons
have no where to go to so they don’t move. or The circuit is not complete without the positive terminal.

\$500 Question from H2 Analysis: (Medium)
Compare and contrast static in under a minute and a half electricity with current electricity.

\$500 Answer from H2 Comparison could point out that both involve
electrons and charges. That both can represent small or large amounts of electricity and can have same or similar sources. Contrast could point out how one is moving electrons and other is not.

\$100 Question from H3 Comprehension: (Easy)
Does a series circuit have only one, two or more than two paths that it can follow?

\$100 Answer from H3 Series Circuits can have only one path.

\$200 Question from H3 Comprehension: Daily Double
In a series circuit of four lights what happens to the third and fourth light if the second one goes out? For Double points what happens to the first light.

\$200 Answer from H3 In a series circuit the third and fourth
lights go out when the second one does. So does the first since all have to be working in a series circuit.

\$300 Question from H3 Analysis: (Easy) When more bulbs are added to a
series circuit explain why each would give off less light.

\$300 Answer from H3 They are all part of the same load
in a series circuit and use the same path of electrons to light them all.

\$400 Question from H3 Analysis: (medium)
Why are homes, factories and schools not wired using series circuits?

\$400 Answer from H3 Answer should include one of the following or equivalent at teachers discretion. Each appliance added would reduce the electricity the other appliances got. -All appliances would have to be on for any of them to work. -If one appliance stopped working all would stop.

\$500 Question from H3 Application: (Hard)
Explain in a minute and a half how a battery, bulb A, bulb B, bulb C, multiple wires, and a switch would be connected to form a series circuit. (Must include which battery terminal you start from and finish at.)

\$500 Answer from H3 Wire to negative terminal of battery, then to switch. Next, wires connect to A then to B then to C and finally to positive terminal of battery.

\$100 Question from H4 Knowledge: (easy)
In a parallel circuit electrons have more than ______ paths to follow.

\$100 Answer from H4 In a parallel circuit electrons have more than
one paths to follow.

\$200 Question from H4 In a parallel circuit with two bulbs,
how many paths does the electricity have to follow?

\$200 Answer from H4 In a parallel circuit with two bulbs,
the electricity has two paths to follow?

\$300 Question from H4 Analysis: (Easy) When more bulbs are added to a
parallel circuit explain why each would not give off less light.

\$300 Answer from H4 In a parallel circuit each bulb gets its
own electron flow of electrons path so is unaffected if other bulbs are added.

\$400 Question from H4 Comprehension: (Medium)
In a parallel circuit of four lights, what happens to the second to fourth light if the light closest to the battery goes out?

\$400 Answer from H4 They stay on, because in parallel circuits
none of the lights share the same electron path.

\$500 Question from H4 Application: (Hard)
Explain in a minute and a half how a battery, bulb A and B, multiple wires, and a switch would be connected to form a parallel circuit. (Must include which battery terminal you start from and finish at.)

\$500 Answer from H4 Wire to negative terminal of battery, then
to switch. Next, wires connect to A then one wire goes to positive terminal of battery, while second wire goes to B bulb. Finally, a wire goes from B bulb back through A to wire going to positive battery terminal.

\$100 Question from H5 Knowledge: (Easy)
_____________ are materials that allow electric charges to flow through them easily.

\$100 Answer from H5 Knowledge: (Easy)
Conductors are materials that allow electric charges to flow through them easily.

\$200 Question from H5 Knowledge: (Medium) What is direct current?

\$200 Answer from H5 Direct current is current in which
electrons always flow in the same direction.

\$300 Question from H5 Comprehension: (Medium)
What is the difference between Alternating and Direct current?

\$300 Answer from H5 Direct current’s electrons always flows
in the same direction. Alternating current’s electrons change direction at a regular rate.

\$400 Question from H5 Comprehension: (Medium)
Classify the following as conductor, insulator, load, direct current. Car Battery Lightning Rod Rubber Light Bulb

\$400 Answer from H5 Classify the following as
conductor, insulator, load, direct current. A) Car Battery –direct current B) Lightning Rod -- conductor C) Rubber -- insulator D) Light Bulb -- load

\$500 Question from H5 Comprehension: (Hard)
Some appliances can use batteries or a wall outlet. What is the difference between the two power sources? What does this tell you about the current in an electric circuit?

\$500 Answer from H5 One power source is direct current and
the other is alternating current. The electric circuit in these devices can use either.

Final Jeopardy Evaluation: (Medium)
Just before a lightning strike, your hair stands up. What type of electricity is this and how is it being transmitted into you? Is it coming from the sky above you, the air around you or the ground beneath you?

Final Jeopardy Answer It is static electricity and it is
being transmitted by conduction from the ground beneath you.
