Students read a definition of Kirchhoff's Voltage Law and view examples of its use.
Students study the concept that the voltage drop across a series circuit resistor is proportional to its resistance. They then complete a brief quiz.
In this learning activity you'll review how a short affects current flow and voltage in a series circuit.
In this learning activity you'll determine the voltages that can be topped off of a multi-resistor voltage divider that has one main power source.
In this learning activity you'll review how an open in a series circuit affects current.
In this learning activity you'll review the process of solving for the total resistance in a series DC circuit.
In this animated object, learners examine how the way in which a rheostat is connected in series with other resistors causes current and voltage to change as the resistance is varied. A brief quiz completes the activity.
In this learning activity you'll review the various ways to calculate the total power consumed in a series circuit.
In this learning activity you'll determine what happens to current flow in a series circuit when the resistance is changed.
In this learning activity you'll explore the effect of connecting voltage sources in series to increase voltage applied to a load.
