What is the term for the rate of flow of charge around a circuit?
What is the term for the "energy transferred per unit charge"?
Voltage (potential difference)
What is the unit for resistance in a circuit?
What is the unit for current in a circuit?
What colour is the live wire in a plug?
What colour is the neutral wire in a plug
What colour is the earth wire in a plug?
Yellow and green
If my PS4 runs with a current of 3A, which fuse should I choose to put in the plug for the PS4: 2A, 4A, 15A?
What is the term for the rate of energy transfer?
What is the unit of power?
What is the name of the network of cables and transformers that bring electricity to our homes?
The national grid
What is the voltage of the UK mains electricity?
What is the Ohms law equation?
V = I x R
Why is the voltage stepped up to nearly 400 kV whilst the electricity travels across the cables in the national grid.
To reduce energy lost by heating in the cables.
Why is the voltage stepped down by a transformer, to 230V before it enters our homes?
What is the difference between an A.C supply and a D.C supply?
D.C one direction, constant size. A.C changing direction and changing size.
What type of supply does a battery produce, A.C or D.C
What type of supply does a coal power station produce, A.C or D.C?
What is the frequency of the UK mains electricity supply (it's an A.C supply)
Name 3 fossil fuel energy sources, used to generate electricity.
Coal, Oil, Natural gas
Which energy source used to generate electricity is non renewable, but not a fossil fuel?
Name 3 renewable sources of energy used to generate electricity
wind, wave, solar, geothermal, hydro (gravitational potential energy), bio fuels
What is the name given to a material which can not conduct electricity?
What is the name given to a material that can conduct electricity?
Will a bird be electrocuted if it sits on a national grid cable?
No, if it is only touching the live wire, it is not completing a circuit so no current flows.
Why is it dangerous to tough a live wire and the ground?
A current will flow through you. This can interrupt the rhythm of you heart and cause burns.
What is a fuse?
A piece of wire which will melt and break the circuit if too much current is flowing.
What is the equation to calculate electrical power?
P = V x I
What affect is burning fossil fuels having on the environment?
Release CO2 which is a greenhouse gas - causing climate change
Burning fossil fuels releases sulfur oxides, what negative environmental effect is caused by sulfur oxides?
Why could a country not only use wind turbines and solar panels to generate its electricity?
It's not always windy and its not always sunny
What is the function of a step up transformer?
To increase the voltage of a supply to reduce energy loss in the cables.
