Electrical Circuit Facts for Kids Video
This easy to understand science video explains a lot of interesting facts about electrical circuits.
Electrical Circuit facts
An electrical circuit can be defined as something which helps electrons to flow in a continuous uniform direction through wires. This flow of electrons occurs in a never ending loop without any source or destination. This cannot happen in a broken circuit. This loop should be made up of some conductive material.
Quick Facts: –
- Ampere is the unit of measuring electric current.
- Electric circuits are used to power bulbs or other electric components.
- A battery is the major components of an electric circuit which acts as a power source. It provides energy which helps electrons to flow.
- A battery consists of one or more section or cells. In every section, two electrodes are separated by a liquid or paste which is called electrolyte. Number of cells depends on the size of battery.
- The amount of flowing electric charge in one second is called current.
- In a circuit, electrons flow from negative to positive.
- All the required components for formation of a circuit are: – battery, wires, bulbs, switches and motors.
- A switch is used to control the flow of electricity. If a switch is open, it will create a gap in the circuit and current will not flow. When it is closed, circuit will be completed and flow of current will be continued.
