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.

# How do circuits work?

The battery charges the circuit and can light a little light. circuts work by the flow of electons

# How does an integrated circuit work?

An integrated circuit works by simply using electronic switches tostore a single byte. These are used in common small appliances.

No

# How does a parallel circuit work work?

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

# How does a circuit work you must use the word electron?

a path of continuous electrons. may include switch but must have load or will short circuit.

# How does a tank circuit circuit work?

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

# Why does a circuit work?

It works with a connected wire and all the components inside a circuit.

# What stops a circuit from working?

an object that dosent conduct electrisity like stiky tape or plastic

# How do electrons work in a circuit?

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

# How does the AND safety circuit work?

It requires two inputs before the output turns on.

# Will a circuit work with the switch and will it work if you take the switch out of the circuit?

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

# Part of a circuit that does work?

the circuit works withSERIES OF component like capacitor,s resistors,IC'S

# How do you work out the value of a fuse in a circuit?

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 2

# How do circuit works?

Circuits work by the movement of electrons by voltage pressure which is looking for a ground.

# How the circuit work?

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

# Why ammeter works as short circuited in circuit?

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

# What work does a circuit do on a circuit board?

Circuit on a circuit board receives electronic signals from the input port, processes it into electronic signals suitable for the machine at the output port and delivers outpu
