Title Charge and Energy Conservation in Circuits Inquiry
Description This inquiry uses pre-constructed circuits to allow students to investigate current, voltage and power relationships amongst the circuit elements for simple resistive circuits. It is intended for students to discover Kirchoff's Loop Rule and Junction Rule by examining measurements made of four different circuits, and to make connections between energy and charge conservation with these rules. Power dissipated/produced by each element is also examined and related to energy conservation.
