Adding to simple circuits

Physics Narrative for 5-11 11-14 Supporting Physics Teaching

Three steps

There are three steps in this episode.

  • In the first step an extra battery is added to the circuit. This is compared to the simple circuit studied up to this point.
  • Then, this same simple circuit is compared to one where there are two bulbs in a single loop.
  • Finally, the simple circuit is compared to one in which there are two bulbs, but each is on its own loop.
