In this interactive and animated object, learners examine the flow of electron current into and out of hot and neutral sockets during each alternation of an AC waveform. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Learners follow the steps for reducing all of the elements of a complex circuit to a single current source and a single source resistance to create a simple circuit. Several examples are given for dc circuits. The conversion between Thevenin and Norton is also presented.
In this learning activity you'll explore various ways to calculate the power consumed in a series/parallel circuit.
