Bell Work: Compare and Contrast
Use a Venn diagram or table to compare
and contrast:
1. AC and DC
2. Series and Parallel

Low friction
V and I are
directly related
Long distances
R and I are
inversely related
Power plants
Must have wires

rest stay on
TODAY
1. Complete a parallel circuit practice problem
together.
2. Finish up parallel lab. Fix typos:
 12) … . .look at steps 7-9. . . . ..
 12) . . . bulbs (in step 5) . . . .total current in step 5
was: _____
1. Work on parallel practice problems
2. Pick up review sheet to work on tonight.
3. Pick up a folder check – bring any questions with
you tomorrow.
4. TEST THURSDAY
