electrical energy
electrical
energy
flow of
electricity
is the energy carried by
tiny particles called
electrons moving from
one place to another in
wires, light bulbs, or
motors
the movement of
electricity through a
closed circuit
conductor
allows electricity to
pass through
insulator
stops the flow of
electricity
series circuit
circuit in which
electric current only
follows one path
parallel circuit
circuit in which
electric current
divides into two or
more paths before
recombining to
complete the circuit
electric current
the flow of electricity
through a conductor
that can produce light,
heat, and sound
closed circuit
complete circuit
is the loop through
which electric current
travels. There are no
breaks in the path.
open circuit
incomplete circuit
has at least one break
in the loop that
interrupts the flow of
electricity
switch
control for opening
and closing a circuit
