AP Physics 1, Big Idea 5, Investigation 15

Electrical circuits have become commonplace in today’s society; however, the complexity of a wiring an entire city grid to a simple light switch may often go overlooked. In this advanced-inquiry experiment, students use multimeters to determine the relationships between voltage, current and resistance for both series and parallel circuits.

A teacher-led demonstration begins the investigation by showing students the construction of simple, series and parallel circuits as well as how to measure voltage and current using a multimeter. The procedure provides a model for the guided-inquiry portion of the lab, which explores the additive nature of lightbulbs in series and in parallel circuits. A further opportunity for inquiry instructs students to construct circuits based on a predetermined set of specifications, such as current, voltage and number of elements.

Complete for 24 students working in groups of three. Multimeters and batteries are required and available separately. All materials are reusable.

FLINNprep is just one of the powerful learning pathways accessed via PAVO, Flinn’s award-winning gateway to standards-aligned digital science content paired with hands-on learning.
