Review For Quiz 3

QUIZ 3 REVIEW for Monday...

Cells - Series Cells vs. parallel Cells:

What is the difference in voltage between series cells and parallel cells
What is the difference in current between series and parallel cells?
How would you arrange to connect cells in a combination of series and parallel? What is the advantage of this?
Circuits - Series and Parallel
How do you connect a circuit in series? How do you connect a cirucuit in parallel?
Describe the movement of electrons through a series circuit and a parallel circuit.
What does Ohm's mean?
Describe how resistance affects the voltage across series and parallel circuits.
Describe how resistance affects the current across series and parallel circuits.
Study circuit diagrams from the assigned course pack questions. Try to calculate the voltage and current across the circuits.

What is the standard unit for measuring current and what is the SI for measuring voltage?
