Electricity Notes 7 Series and Parallel Circuits

Series Circuit 1) Current follows in only _________ path. 2) Path of current is from ___________ electrode of battery to __________ and then to the _______________ electrode. 3) If one load is out (_________________) then all _________ go out. Ex. _______________________ 4) The more _______, the less _________ (current) through the circuit. 5) Resistors in series ____ _____. negative ONE load positive path broken loads Christmas tree lights loadsenergy Add up

Parallel Circuits 1) Electric current can flow in ______________ path 2) If one load _________, others still _________ Ex. ___________________________ 3) The more _________ you add to a circuit, does _____ affect energy (____________) 4) Resistors in ______________ are equal to: __________________________ More than ONE Goes outwork How your house is wired loadsnot current parallel R = r1 x r2 / r1 + r2
