Current and Closed Circuit

Voltage

What is a voltage

An electromotive force or potential difference expressed in volts. An example of its use is in electric power transmission lines that are used to distribute electricity from power stations which can be several hundred times greater than consumer voltages, typically 110 to 1200 kV (AC).

Switch

What is a switch

A switch is any device used to interrupt the flow of electrons in a circuit. It uses are turning on power or an device by flipping the switch on and off.

In a purely parallel circuit, there are never more than two sets of electrically common points, no matter how many components are linked. There are many paths for the electrons to flow, but only one voltage across all components: Series is a circuit in which resistors are arranged in a chain, so the current has only one path to take. Examples of the use of a series circuit is christmas light string since the bulbs are in a seris, and uses of an parallel circuit is in your home. The reason is because the power in a appliance or an device can be cut off and without cutting out the power for another.

A open circuit is an electrical circuit that is not complete. Uses for an open circuit include a string of electrical lights in which one of them goes out, none of the remaing bulbs work.

A closed circuit is an electric circuit through which current can flow in an uninterrupted path. Example of this is a television system in which the signal is usually sent by cable to a limited number of receivers.

Circuit current is the rate at which charge flows past a point on a circuit. Examples of this is an flashlight.
