  • Static Electricity

    Posted on November 15, 2006 by Buzz Putnam

    Static charge (electrons, in this case) can be physically transferred from one object to another through friction. Students will use rubber, glass, fur and silk to create positive and negative charges, and investigate how these charges cause forces.

    Circuits Series Circuits Several properties of a series circuit will be demonstrated in this experiment. The primary concepts to be covered are: 1. Lamps in series reduce current flow. 2. Lamps in series increase the total resistance of the circuit. 3. The voltage across each bulb in a series circuit decreases as the number of bulbs in the circuit increases.
