Name: BenishaDate: Thursday October 28th 20Student Exploration: CircuitsVocabulary:ammeter, circuit, current, electron, ohmmeter, Ohm’s law, parallel circuit,resistance, resistor, series circuit, voltagePrior Knowledge Questions(Do these BEFORE using the Gizmo.)Strings of holiday lights can be designed in one of two ways. In some strings of lights, each lightis connected to the others along a single wire (in series). In others, each light is attached to itsown wire (in parallel).1.Suppose a single light bulb burns out. How do you think this will affect lights that are strungalong a single wire?They won't get affected because nothing happened to the wire just thesingle light bulb2.How will a single burned-out bulb affect the string of lights if each light is attached to its ownwire?It won't affect the others because they have their own wiresGizmo Warm-upTheCircuitsGizmo shows a circuit board and a variety ofcomponents. Create acircuitwith a battery, a light switch, a wire,and a light bulb, as shown. (Click the light switch to turn it toOFF.)
2.Turn onShow currentand selectElectron flow. The moving dots represent acurrentelectrons—tiny, negatively charged particles—moving through the wire.Voltageis ameasure of how much more potential energy an electron at one end of a battery has than anelectron at the other end of the battery.A.How does changing the battery’s voltage affect the current?of
