(Unit 9 Quiz#1):
This week's quiz on Unit 9 material
is tentatively scheduled for Friday, February 20. The quiz
will likely be a one-page quiz, covering both sides of a
sheet of paper. The equation for current, voltage, V=I*R,
and power will be given. Other than a calculator, no other
will be provided nor allowed. Students can expect the
following concepts, skills, and problem-types to be assessed
on this quiz:
- Identify and describe the
requirements for a circuit.
- Define current and know its
units; use an understanding of current to determine the
amount of current at a given location in a circuit if
given the appropriate information; identify the direction
of the conventional current through a circuit.
- Explain the role of the
battery/power supply in an electric circuit; explain how
utility companies are a source of electric energy but not
a source of electrons; describe energy transfer in
- Identify, refute, and correct
common misconceptions concerning charge flow through
- Define electric power and
describe factors which effect the electric power
consumption; use electric power equations and energy
costs to analyze the costs of meeting the electricity
demands for an average household.
- Explain the cause and effect of
electrical resistance in circuits; use R=V/I relation to
describe factors effecting the electric current and solve
simple computational problems.
