Description

This Exploriment app presents an environment in which you can learn about potential difference, voltage and voltmeter. Compare characteristics of voltage in series and parallel circuits. Use a voltmeter to measure potential difference across one and more devices in a circuit. Understand and verify the cumulative nature of voltage drops in case of devices in series and explore voltage measurement with reference to a base voltage.

Are you in for some livewire action? Don’t be shocked!! Try other apps from our Exploriments Electricity series, which makes it very safe to tinker with electricity. The interface puts learning at your fingertips by letting you touch, swipe, flick and move electrical components in and out of circuits, gaining important insights in the process. Benefit from helpful analogies and learn by doing activities with wires, switches, ammeters and more.

The Exploriments Series of interactive simulation-based tools makes conceptual learning in science an engaging and insightful experience.

--- Understand equality of voltage across multiple parallel branches

Activity 3: Cumulative Voltage in Series
--- Understand the cumulative nature of voltage in series
--- Measure, record and verify addition of voltage in series

Activity 4: Voltage in Parallel Circuits
--- Explore characteristics of voltage in parallel circuits
--- Measure, record and verify that potential difference is equal across same set of parallel branches

Activity 5: Relative Voltage
