3 Enduring Understandings: The student will understand that: Electric current is the result of the motion of charged particles across a conductor. Friction forces can cause the accumulation of an unbalanced amount of charged particles on the surface of an object. The voltage created between two objects due to the presence of an unbalanced charge may create an electric spark or shock. Electrons can be transferred from one charged conductor to another by physical contact. An electric current requires a complete circuit and a voltage source. The amount of current that flows in a circuit depends on both the resistance and the voltage of the source. In a series circuit the same amount of current flows through all the components. In a parallel circuit the voltage drop across each component is equal and equal to the voltage of the power source. In a direct current circuit the electrons flow in only one direction. In an alternating current circuit the motion of the electrons alternates back and forth due to the changing polarity of the voltage source. Essential Question(s): What does it mean when something is electrically charged? How can an object become electrically charged? Why can small birds sit on high-voltage power lines? Why is an alternating current necessary for a motor to work? What characteristics of the material make it a good conductor or insulator? Why are insulators attracted to charged objects? Why is alternating current commonly used in household applications? Pre-Assessment: Give students three-five statements about the standards listed above and a scale that goes from true, false, maybe, and no idea. This can be done as a ticket-out-the-door the day prior to beginning this unit. Evaluate the quiz results and group students based on their current knowledge level. This will allow the teacher to give a brief introduction to this activity and then work with the no idea group for minutes, the maybe group for 5-10 minutes, and the true group for only a few minutes to get everyone started. Then the teacher should be able to navigate the room offering help where needed. Teacher Note: It may be necessary to review the concepts related to Newton s Laws of Motion as they apply to the movement of charges in a circuit prior to this activity Page 3 of 7

7 Additional Notes One Stop Shop For Educators Series Circuits Devices in series are dependent upon each other to operate properly. The total resistance in a circuit is equal to the sum of the individual resistances along the current path. R T = R 1 + R 2 + R 3 etc. The potential difference, or voltage, is decreased over each resistance. The voltage drop across each device is directly proportional to its resistance. Parallel Circuits Devices act independently of each other and can operate properly even when one or more resistors become disabled. The total equivalent resistance is less than the value of any individual resistor. Each device connects the same two points of the circuit; therefore, the voltage is the same across each device. The total current is equal to the sum of the currents in each branch. I T = I 1 + I 2 + I 3 etc. Homework Problems Basic and Intermediate 1. You are to draw a series circuit schematic with a battery as the source and three resistors. Then calculate the voltage if the current of the circuit is 1875 amps and the resistors have the following values: R 1 =7.00 Ohms, R 2 =5.00 Ohms, and R 3 =8.00 Ohms. What would the voltage be across each resistor? Advanced 2. You are to draw a parallel circuit schematic with a battery as the source and two resistors. Then calculate the current if the battery is supplying volts across two resistors with R 1 =5.00 Ohms and R 2 =12.00 Ohms. What is the current across each resistor? Draw a series circuit schematic with one battery and two resistors. Applying the same voltage and resistance values to this circuit (as listed at the beginning of this problem), determine the total current and the current across each resistor Page 7 of 7
