Vocabulary

Unit D, Chapter 14

Revised by Susan Wagner – 7/28/10



Definition charged particles on an object that are not balanced
Definition: Charged particles on an object that are not balanced.

Sentence: A build up of static electricity caused the boy’s hand to be shocked when he reached for the door knob.


Electric current
electric current balanced.


Definition an electrical charge in motion
Definition: An electrical charge in motion. balanced.

  • Sentence: In a series circuit, all devices wired into the circuit share the electric current equally.


Resistance
resistance balanced.


Definition a quality of an object which means that electric current cannot flow easily through it
Definition: a quality of an object which means that electric current cannot flow easily through it.

  • Sentence: A coiled wire is inside the light bulb. This wire is made of a material with a high resistance.


Series circuit
series circuit current cannot flow easily through it.


Electrifying vocabulary
Definition: a simple circular path in which an electric current flows only one way through each part of that circuit.

  • Sentence: In a series circuit, one missing or burnt-out bulb opens the circuit therefore no bulbs will light.


Parallel circuit
parallel current flows only one way through each part of that circuit.circuit


Definition a circuit with two or more paths for the electric charge to follow
Definition: a circuit with two or more paths for the electric charge to follow.

  • Sentence: A break or missing bulb does not cause all of the lights to go out in a parallel circuit.


Magnetism
magnetism electric charge to follow.


Electrifying vocabulary
Definition: the property of attraction of an object that has a magnetic field. It can attract other objects made of metal

  • Sentence: Electricity and magnetism are closely related. Both are the result of charged particles moving.


Magnetic field
magnetic field a magnetic field. It can attract other objects made of metal


Electrifying vocabulary

Definition: the invisible force that loops between the poles of a magnet due to the arrangement of charges. The force is strongest at the poles, or ends, and gets weaker as distance from the magnet.

  • Sentence: Iron filings near a horseshoe magnet show that the magnetic field is strongest near the poles.


Electromagnet
electromagnet of a magnet due to the arrangement of charges. The force is strongest at the poles, or ends, and gets weaker as distance from the magnet.


Definition a coil of wire that causes a magnetic field when current moves through the wire
Definition: a coil of wire that causes a magnetic field when current moves through the wire.

  • Sentence: More coils and a larger core makes the electromagnet stronger.
