In this learning activity you'll determine the total resistance in a DC parallel circuit.
Learners observe current flow throughout the series portion and branches of a parallel circuit. This animated activity includes calculations and a short quiz.
In this learning activity you'll explore Kirchhoff's Current Law and view examples of its application.
Learners examine the changes in current and voltage values in a parallel circuit when open and short conditions develop. Ohm's Law calculations are shown, and a brief quiz completes the activity.
In this learning activity you'll explore how a fuse de-energizes a parallel circuit when too many lamps are connected to a power outlet.
The effect of connecting voltage sources in parallel to increase amperage to a load is presented.
The learner will apply the three formulas used to find the total resistance of three types of parallel resistor circuit configurations.
In this interactive learning object, students view the ammeter connections for measuring currents in a parallel circuit with three branches on an energy concepts lab board. A brief quiz completes the activity.
