Develop and use models to describe the path of an electric current in a complete simple circuit as it accomplishes a task (such as lighting a bulb or making a sound).
- Physical Science: Energy Transfer - Electricity and Magnetism
The student will demonstrate an understanding of how electricity transfers energy and how magnetism can result from electricity.
Energy can be transferred from place to place by electric currents. Electric currents flowing through a simple circuit can be used to produce motion, sound, heat, or light. Some materials allow electricity to flow through a circuit and some do not.
