Strand--2 Light Bulb. The arrangment that had the light bulbs shining the dimmest is 1 Strand--2 Light Bulb.

Q4. Which of the arrangements had the light bulbs shine the brightest and the dimmest? With one battery, two batteries, or three batteries?

The arrangment that had the light bulbs shining the brightest is 3 batteries. The arrangment that had the light bulbs shining the dimmest is 1 battery.

Q6. Is the voltage across each of the resistors different for every resistor?

The voltage that runs through the resistors are the same when current flows through the resistors, it is different when the voltage drops.

Q7. Assume that you have a 10-Ohm, a 20-Ohm, and a 30-Ohm resistor in series connected to a 6.0-Volt battery. What is the total resistance of this circuit? What is the current in this circuit? Draw a circuit diagram for this circuit and indicate all the given quantities as well as the quantities that you calculate in the diagram.

The total resistance is 60-Ohm. The current of this circuit is 0.1 amps.

6.0/60 = 0.1 amps

Q8. Is the current that runs through the two resistors in parallel different for every

Assume that you have a 10-Ohm and a 20-Ohm resistor in series, connected to a 1.5-Volt battery. You reconnect these resistors so they are wired in parallel.

1.How many paths can the electrons take in this series circuit?
The eletrons can take 1 path in this series circuit.

2.How many paths can the electrons take in this parallel circuit?
The electrons can take 3 paths in this parrallel circuit.

3.Will the resistance of the circuit (the two resistors) be higher in the series or the parallel circuit?
The resistance of the circuit will be higher in the series.

Q12. Find out what the voltage value is for the outlets in your home. Find out what the frequency of the voltage is for the outlets in your home. Report your findings here.

The voltage value for the outlets in my home are 120v. The frequency is 60 hz.

Q15. Check one of the household appliances for which you can change the power output (hair drier, microwave oven, electric mixers, ...). Describe this appliance here. Give the possible values for power output and describe what the different values do in practical terms.

A hair drier is a household appliancwe that can change in power input. When the hot button is on, it uses about 800 watts and when the cold button is on it uses about 300
