This wave and electromagnetism assignment is so thorough, it could be used as a unit exam. The first section of it covers wave concepts. The next section addresses static electricity. There is a section that deals with electric circuits. Finally, the worksheet finishes off with magnetism, specifically electromagnetic induction. Though many of the questions require problem solving and computation, the answers are presented as multiple choice. Neat diagrams are included in many of the questions.
Collaborative groups connect resistors and solar panels in series and measure electrical resistance, voltage, and current. The objective is to order 16 solar panels from strongest to weakest. They graph current-voltage and power curves as well. This lesson gives learners experience in problem solving and critical thinking in addition to helping them identify variables that might affect the output of a solar panel.
In this electricity worksheet, students answer 17 multiple choice questions about electricity, how it is measured, the types of currents, the types of meters and circuits. Students also answer multiple choice questions about protein synthesis in the cell and the processes of transcription and translation.
Fourth graders experiment to find out how to light a bulb with simple materials. They make predictions if a light bulb set-up could work and gain knowledge to tell the difference between an open and closed circuit. They also figure out what resistors and conductors are and give examples of each.
In this electricity worksheet, students are assessed given 29 schematics and a competency for each schematic. They find either the conditions found in each schematic, the parameters of the schematic or give an analysis of the schematic depending on what information is given.
Fourth graders use research tools to access and synthesize information. They gather and manipulate data using technology. Research and study the components of an electrical circuit. Create a brochure that demonstrates knowledge of how to make an electrical circuit or etc.
Learners assess how patterns, functions and algebra can assist NASA engineers design new ways of propelling spacecrafts. They explore how electricity and magnetism are replacing the fuel-consuming rocket propulsion. Electromagnetism is introduced in depth within this instructional activity.
In this electricity and thermodynamics worksheet, students review the major concepts of both series circuits and parallel circuits, they review types of thermal transfer, they match electricity terms with their definitions, they fill in the blanks with terms related to electricity and the movement of electrons and they find current, voltage, and power in given problems.
Students study the discovery of the electron and how it led to other inventions and discoveries concerning electrical current. They observe several demonstrations concerning electricity. In one activity, they determine whether or not a galvanometer is a reliable lie detector test.
A collection of 15 practice problems, most of them involving circuit schematics, is provided for your physics class on this handout. Learners are to compute the net charge, resistance, energy, or power dissipated for different circumstances. Multiple choice answers are listed for each question. This is an ideal assignment to add to your possible homework choices.
Electricians draw four different circuits and answer questions about the resistance, voltage drop, and current at different points in each. Completing this worksheet will help make sure that your class is understanding what is happening throughout an electric circuit. The formatting isn't perfect, but the problems are relevant. Assign this as homework.
