Diagnostic questions on parallel circuits
What the activity is for
The diagnostic questions can be used to check the pupils' understanding of key ideas introduced in this episode.
What to prepare
- printed copies of the diagnostic questions
What happens during this activity
The questions might be used for homework or as the basis for discussion in class.Identical resistors: designed to probe pupils' understanding of how voltage is dropped across identical resistors in a simple parallel circuit.
- V1 is 8 volt
- V2 is 8 volt
- Voltage across bulb B1 is 4 volt
- Voltage across bulb B1 is 4 volt; B2 is 4 volt
