How does a circuit work?
A circuit works through a series of components mainly resistors, capacitors, and IC's. There are different types of IC's the main groups are AND, OR, NOR, & NAND. Those are just the basics you first learn about when dealing with electronics. These IC's work from what we call the binary code which is just a bunch of 1's and 0's. 1 is a logical high which gives you a positive voltage and 0 is a logical low which gives you no voltage. Lets say you have an and gate hooked up to a 150ohm resistor(it's used for voltage protection of your component)connected to a simple LED. In order to get this LED to have a logical high both inputs A and B have to get a high in order for your output to be high which in return allows voltage to pass through the resistor to your LED this powering your light emmitting diode. i hope this helped.
A circuit is just that a circuit of something. In electricity, it is the flow of electricity from the power source, through the wires, and back to the power source. You flip a switch, the power flows to the device, and continues back completing the circuit.

Thanks for the feedback!
The battery charges the circuit and can light a little light. circuts work by the flow of electons
An integrated circuit works by simply using electronic switches to store a single byte. These are used in common small appliances.
A parallel circuit works because both components have their own path from the battery and back to the battery. P.S. you put 2 "work"s. Answer Each branch shares a com…mon voltage, so each load is subject to the same supply voltage, and will operate at its rated power (a load will only operate at its rated power at its rated voltage).
a path of continuous electrons. may include switch but must have load or will short circuit.
Good question! I am a science freak. a tank circuit is basically a circuit of a capacitor and a inductor. A capacitor stores voltage, usually from a battery An inductor is a… coil of wires. Whenever a voltage (think of electricity)run across the inductor (think of it as running through it), it creates a magnetic field. basically the capacitor is filled up usually with a battery, and then it comes out the other end of the capacitor through the wire to the inductor which makes a magnetic field and the vice versa. They just keep exchanging.
It works with a connected wire and all the components inside a circuit.
an object that dosent conduct electrisity like stiky tape or plastic
the electrons are current carrier which flow from negative to positive potential. This makes the flow of current . the direction of currents is opposite to direction of electr…on flow .Hence any circuit can be operate by using electrons or respective charge carrier it may be hole. (current flow).
A switch is used to connect or disconnect a load from a source of voltage. If you take the input and connect directly to the output the result is that the connected device is …always on.
the circuit works withSERIES OF component like capacitor,s resistors,IC'S
look at the power consumption of the device in Watts (W) Then divide by the voltage (V) The result is the current drawn by the device in amps (A) so if a device draws 20…0 Watts the product of Watts (W) divided by power (V) is 16.6 amps. So you would use a 20 Amp fuse AND the cable would need to have a large enough cross sectional area to carry the current without overheating and causing a fire. Also look into the placement of the fuse as it should be as close to the battery as you can. Just remember that the fuse is to protect the cable from catching fire and NOT to protect the electronic device. good luck and maybe get it looked at my an auto electrician for a drink once its done for safetys sake. Afew beers would be cheaper than a fire extinguisher.
Circuits work by the movement of electrons by voltage pressure which is looking for a ground.
An electrical circuit must be complete i.e it must form a closed loop,for it to work. Current only flow if the circuit is complete. A complete circuit is one that consist of a… Voltage source, a consumer like a bulb and conductors. The conductor then connects the consumer and the voltage source together forming a closed loop.
The ammeter is basically a Galvanometer with a small resistance to parallel with it. As we know that, if we connect two resistances in parallel, then the equivalent resistance… is equal to the the value which is less than the value of lowest resistance connected in parallel. suppose if we connect 1 ohm & 0.1 ohm in parallel, then the equivalent of it will be 0.0909 ohm (less than 0.1 ohm). means in parallel circuit the equivalent resistance become smaller. as like this a small parallel resistance across galvanometer decreases the value of the value of resistance of it. since it gets very small value, so it connected in series to measure the value of current in the circuit. due to very low resistance, it drops very low voltage on it ( upto can be negligible) so we assume that it works like a short circuit.
