Polytechnic School: "Make A Circuit with Me"

Published : Thursday, March 1, 2018 | 1:30 PM

Students in Poly’s AP Physics course are using common electrical and electronic components – batteries, lights, and variable resistors – to explore the relationship between electric potential and electric current in series and parallel circuits. There is little danger to the students in performing these experiments, although if they connect the ammeter to the circuit incorrectly, there is the risk of a blown fuse (the instructors keep a steady supply of spares on hand).
