Term

Definition
current in a circuit is directly proportional to the voltage applied to the circuit and is inversely proportional to the resistance of the circuit 


Term
list five rules that apply to series circuits 

Definition
Total resistance (R) is the sum of the individual resistance. There for the Voltage at the source (Vt) is equal to the sum of the voltages at the resistance. A break anywhere in the circuit stops the electron flow in the entire circuit. Ohm's law applies to any part of the entire circuit. The current (amperage) of a series circuit is the same throughout 


Term
List five rules that apply to parallel circuits. 

Definition
A break or opening in any branch of the parallel circuit does not stop the flow of electrons to the remaining branches. The voltages across all the branches of the parallel circuit are the same, and are equal to the voltage at the source. Ohm's Law applies equally well to the total circuit or any of the loops or branches. The total current (I) is equal tot he sum of the currents flowing through each of the branches. The total resistance of the reciprocal of the sum of the reciprocals of the separate resistance in parallel 


Term
Explain what electromagnetic induction is and how it is accomplished 

Definition
The Process of producing an electromotive force by varying the magnetic field surrounding a conductor 


Term
The strength of the electron flow in a generator can be increased by what four factors 

Definition
A greater number of turns (loops) of a wire in the coil..A faster speed of the conducting loop rotation...An increased strength of the magnets...Positioning the moving coil at right angels to the magnetic field lines of force 


Term
Explain the difference between a generator and an electric motor 

Definition
Motors are like generators they transform one kind of energy to another . While generators convert mechanical energy to Electrical energy
