- Q1What happens to the voltage in a series circuit?It increases as it passes through the componentsIt remains constant throughout the circuitIt decreases as it passes through the componentsIt is divided among the components30s
- Q2What is the advantage of a parallel circuit over a series circuit?Parallel circuits use less energyParallel circuits are simpler to set upIf one component breaks, the others can still functionParallel circuits are always faster than series circuits30s
- Q3What happens to the current in a series circuit?It is divided among the componentsIt decreases as it passes through the componentsIt increases as it passes through the componentsIt is the same throughout the circuit30s
- Q4What happens to the resistance in a parallel circuit?It decreases as more components are addedIt increases as more components are addedIt changes depending on the type of components usedIt remains constant no matter how many components are added30s
- Q5How are the components arranged in a series circuit?Side by side with multiple pathsRandomly scattered with no set pathIn a loop where the current flows in both directionsOne after another in a single path30s
- Q6How are the components arranged in a parallel circuit?Side by side with multiple pathsIn a loop where the current flows in both directionsOne after another in a single pathRandomly scattered with no set path30s
- Q7What is true about the voltage in a parallel circuit?It decreases as it passes through the componentsIt is the same across all componentsIt is divided among the componentsIt increases as it passes through the components30s
- Q8What is true about the current in a parallel circuit?It increases as it passes through the componentsIt is divided among the componentsIt is the same throughout the circuitIt decreases as it passes through the components30s
- Q9What is true about the resistance in a series circuit?It is the maximum of the resistances of each componentIt is the sum of the resistances of each componentIt is the minimum of the resistances of each componentIt is the average of the resistances of each component30s
