Energy Change in Circuits

Materials: None

Time Allotment: 2 Class Days


This makeup lab is unique from most others in that it does not actually involve a laboratory exercise. Rather, this makeup lab involves the completion of a writing assignment which demonstrates your understanding of the energy transformations which occur in circuits.

The Assignment:

Our Current Electricity unit has focused (in part) upon energy transformations which occur in a circuit. We have discussed the role of the battery and the role of resistive elements in a circuit with regards to the energy supplied and expended. Write several paragraphs in which you

In your writing, use complete sentences and the language of physics. The assignment should be less than 1 page long and no more than 3 pages long.
