Physics Students Experiment With Electricity


Story by Erin McFarland

In Mr. Weiland’s Physics 1 class students participated in lab that focused on electricity.
The class contains many juniors and seniors who were allowed to connect circuits and discover how to make light bulbs burn brighter as well as dimmer. Many learned that to make a bulb burn brighter the circuit must contain as few bulbs as possible and as many batteries as possible to direct the most electricity to the given source. As this unit on electricity progresses, the students will learn even more about electricity and types of circuits such as, parallel and series circuits.
