What is electric circuit?
Asked by gspublicschool | 24th Jan, 2019, 10:04: AM
An electric circuit is a path along which electrical charges move. It consists of a source of electrical energy called battery/cell, connecting wires and one or more electrical components such as bulbs, ammeters and switches. The current flows through the circuit unless the circuit is a closed circuit (not disconnected)

- Electric current is the flow of electrons. So, it should flow from the negative to the positive terminal. But my teachers say that the conventional direction of the current flow is high (positive terminal) to low (negative terminal) potential. Which statement is true? If both are true, then why? And please explain to me the difference between Direct and Alternating current. Please help, my exams are coming.
- this is my question
- What is an electric circuit
- mention electric sign in curcuit
- How does a wire helps in the flow of the current ?
- What is the live and neutral wire
- In which direction current flows inside the cell?
- If we touch an electric wire carrying current, get a shock but when birds sit on it , they don't get any shock. Explain.
