How do I create a circuit?


Answer by  oddflash (902)

To create a circuit you need a power source a switch and a load or work. You wire the power source to the switch and from the switch to work/load.

A circuit is actually a very simple electric system in which electrical conductivity is allowed to flow unfettered. This can easily be completed with a power source, wire, and a light bulb. Once screwed in the light bulb completes the circuit.

A simple circuit is a power supply say a battery, a switch and a load eg a lamp. By connecting a wire from one battery terminal to the switch and contiinuing from the switch to the load and returning to the second battery terminal you have a circuit.

the power from the power source, in the case of a D. C. circuit must flow from the positive terminal, through a conductive material such as electrical wire, through the component that is being powered, for example a light bulb, then back to the negative terminal, again though a conductive material.

Electricity--to work--has to travel in a circle. A circuit is an installation which allows the electrical current to complete a circuit. In an Alternating Current system the current travels out on the "current carrying conductor" (usually black, red, blue or brown), and back on the neutral (usually white) wire for 120volt circuits, and returns alternately between the two phases.
