Henderson's Regular Physics Quizzes

(1998-99 School Year)


Suggestions for this week's quiz (Unit 9 Quiz#1):

This week's quiz on Unit 9 material is tentatively scheduled for Friday, February 19. 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 helps will be provided nor allowed. Students can expect the following concepts, skills, and problem-types to be assessed on this quiz:

  1. Identify and describe the requirements for a circuit.
  2. 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; compare this direction to the direction which electrons actually travel.
  3. 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 electric circuits
  4. Identify, refute, and correct common misconceptions concerning charge flow through circuits.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
