The O'Donnell Foundation is devoted to building model programs to enhance the quality of education.
|School / Organization||University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown|
|Title||circuits in parallel and in series|
|Simulations||Rangkaian Kit Konstruksi (Hanya DC)|
|Description||In the first activity students explore the properties of circuits in series and in parallel made with identical light bulbs. They do this by using the Phet Circuit simulation. The second activity is hands-on and leads the students through setting up circuits in parallel and in series with resistors of two different values. Voltages and currents are measured in various parts to develop a general model for circuits in parallel and in series. The simulation activity takes about 1.5 and the hands-on about 2.0 hours.|
