The current flowing through electrical components is measured in?
amps
1 of 6
What is a series circuit?
A circuit in which the current in the same in any at any point in the circuit.
2 of 6
What is a parallel circuit?
A parrallel circuit is a circuit in which the current splits when it gets to a junction equals the total current out of the junction.
3 of 6
How can a voltmeter be placed into a circuit?
Voltmeters are connected in parallel across components
4 of 6
How can an ammeter be placed into a circuit?
Ammeters are connected in series with the electrical components.
5 of 6
What are the advantages of using circuits in parallel?
if one component in the circuit stops working, all the others will continue to work properly, the voltage is the same for all the components and it is safer because each part of the circuit can be protected by its own fuse or circuit breaker
