Activity: Simple circuits

IB Physics: Activity: Simple circuits

In this activity you will come to understand how a simple cell creates potential difference. New terms (electromotive force and internal resistance) are added to existing vocabulary (potential difference) and you will be able sketch how terminal potential difference varies with time for a real battery. Ohm"s law will be applied to a simple circuit and you will be able to derive an equation for electrical power.
