Voltage Around a Circuit 2
Added by Craig Napier on Dec 15, 2008
This is a short activity that will further the students' understanding of voltage as they take voltage readings at several points around a series circuit and record these readings in a table. They are taught how voltage varies around a series circuit and learn that voltmeters measure the difference in voltage levels between two points in a circuit.
