Students will use what they have learned from the previous lessons (ohm's law, resistors in series and resistors in parallel) and apply that knowledge to understand and solve more complicated resistor circuits.
Light bulbs are used to demonstrate resistors in series and parallel.
Sample problems are solved and explained for circuits with resistors in both series and parallel.
Calculate the total resistance of multiple resistors wired both in series and in parallel, or mixed circuits.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Resistor Circuits.
Explore how resistors and circuits are like water running through pipes.
A simulation that allows for the construction of a variety of circuits.
This study guide is an overview of circuits and circuit diagrams. It discusses voltage, current, Ohm's law, loop rule, and junction rule and reviews how to solve resistors in series, resistors in parallel, capacitors in series, and capacitors in parallel.
