1.Which wave's particles vibrate up and down?
2. Which wave's particles move back and forth?
Flow of the current
The higher the pressure on voltage, the higher the___?
side by side
Are the loads in a parallel circuit connected side by side or connected away from each other?
1. Its atoms vibrate less, and so they impede the flow of electrons less.
2. They have a higher resistance because it has better resistance towards heat also.
1 or 2? Choose one question
1. Why is the resistance lower in copper?
2. Why is the resistance higher in Nickel and Chromium alloy?
Electrical and Mechanical energy

Gamma ray.
X-ray.
Infrared ray.
UV ray.
Visible light.
Microwaves.
What is 3 or more examples of what an electromagnetic wave?
It is a measure of the electric potential energy per unit charge.
Why is voltage sometimes called electric potential?
They stop the current at a certain point, so the circuit doesn't melt to much.
What do fuses and circuit breakers do?
