One light bulb in a string of lights goes out. This causes all of the other lights in the string to also go out. This is an example of a
B. parallel circuit.
C. closed circuit.
D. series circuit.
2.When a switch is turned from the off to the on position, it is changing the circuit in which of the following ways?
A. An open circuit is being changed into a closed circuit.
B. A closed circuit is being changed into an open circuit.
C. A parallel circuit is being changed into a series circuit.
D. A series circuit is being changed into a parallel circuit.
3.Early telephone poles had wires that connected inside bell-shaped glass enclosures like the ones shown below.
several bell-shaped glass enclosures
These glass enclosures helped to keep the electric current from moving outside the circuit of wires. The glass enclosures were used as
4.Use Ohm’s Law to determine the resistance in a circuit if the voltage is 12.0 volts and the current is 4.0 amps.
A. 8.0 ohms
B. 48 ohms
C. 3.0 ohms
D. 12 ohms
5.In a closed circuit, the current only flows from the power source to an electrical device such as a lamp
4.im not sure please help V = i R
12 = 4 R , R = 12/4 = 3 Ohms
5.false. I agree but am not sure what it means. One could always have a short circuit where current streams through doing nothing useful.
You are in the lab with a 10 V battery. You have a 10 W light bulb and you want to put 1/2 A of current through the light bulb and 5 V across the light bulb. This will allow the light bulb to have a brightness proportional to 2.5
You are in the lab with a 10 V battery. You have a 10 W light bulb and you want to put 0.75 A of current through the light bulb and 7.5 V across the light bulb. This will allow the light bulb to have a brightness proportional to
The light intensity of a light bulb varies inversely as the square of the distance from the light bulb. The function I(d) = k/d^2 models this situation, where I is the light intensity, d is the distance from a light source,
A light bulb is wired in series with a 133-Ω resistor, and they are connected across a 120-V source. The power delivered to the light bulb is 22.5 W. What are the two possible resistances of the light bulb?
A light bulb is wired in series with a 142 resistor, and they are connected across a 120 V source. The power delivered to the light bulb is 22.3 W. What are the two possible resistances of the light bulb?
010 (part 1 of 5) 10.0 points A string of 26 identical Christmas tree lights are connected in series to a 120 V source. The string dissipates 63 W. What is the equivalent resistance of the light string? Answer in units of Ω.
Multiple-Concept Example 9 reviews the concepts that are important to this problem. A light bulb is wired in series with a 116-Ω resistor, and they are connected across a 120.0-V source. The power delivered to the light bulb
A special kind of light bulb emits monochromatic light of wavelength 630 nm. Electrical energy supplied to it at the rate of 60W, and the bulb is 93% efficient at converting that energy into light energy. How many photons are
When a second light bulb is wired into an electric circuit already containing one light bulb, the first one dims. What kind of circuit is the light bulb wired into? open circuit! Yes! No. The bulb is wired into a SERIES circuit.
