Because the circuit is incompleteThe battery us not connected

If a 9.0 volt battery is connected to a 4.0-ohm and 5.0-ohm resistor connected in series, the current in the circuit is 1.0 amperes. If a 9.0 volt battery is connected to a 4.0-ohm and 5.0-ohm resistor connected in parallel, the current in the circuit is 0.5 amperes.

Both ends of the battery are connected, to make a complete circuit.

a circuit is a pathway in which electricity travels a very basic circuit is a battery connected to a light connected back to the battery circuits always travel back to where they started or the circuit is not complete and does not accomplish the desired task all electronics have either a very complex circuit, a simple circuit, or a series of circuits

a battery and a resistor connected together.

The circuit won't do anything until both terminals of the battery are connected to the correct [two different] points in the circuit. As long as either terminal of the battery remains disconnected, the circuit is "OFF".

A bulp is connected in battery and switch it is called open circuit when switch is on it is called open circuit

A battery snap (battery clip) is designed to clip on to the two terminals on a 9 volt PP3 battery. What it does is to provide 9 volts DC (direct current) to the circuit it is connected to.

Torch equals flashlight. Battery negative connected to case switched to bulbs outside. Positive connected to the lamps bottom. Called a series circuit.

The battery produces a voltage; if a conducting wire - or any circuit for that matter - is connected, a current will flow according to Ohm's Law, that is, the current is calculated as voltage / resistance.

There is a battery, a bulb and a switch, all in series and connected by wire to form a complete circuit.

A battery is not a conductor. It is a form of energy storage that can be connected to a circuit in order to produce electricity.

The voltage depends on how the two batteries are connected to one another. If they are connected in a series circuit (positive end to negative end) the voltage will double. If they are wired in a parallel circuit, (It

The equipment is all connected in series with each other to make a complete electrical circuit.

A battery will do this, when connected to a closed circuit (for a while).

Nothing will happen. There has to be a complete a circuit for the battery to function thus allowing for the flow of electricity.

nothings because they is no wire connected to the circuit so no current can flow through

A voltmeter should be connected in a parallel connection

A torch is simply a circuit containing a battery, a bulb and a switch. The three components are connected in series (one after the other) to form a loop. The switch simply completes the circuit so that power flows from the battery to the bulb.

The current flowing from a battery is equal to (Voltage between the battery's terminals)/(Resistance of the circuit connected to the terminals)

That completely depends on how much current is used by the circuit or device that's connected to the battery. For example, if there is no circuit or device connected to the battery, and no current is used, then the battery lasts for quite a long time. But if you lay a screwdriver across the battery terminals and create great balls of fire, then the charge on the battery may only last for 1/2 second.

The resistance of the load is what causes an electric current to flow in a circuit.

A capacitor that is suddenly connected to a battery will charge to the battery voltage. The time to do this is dependent on the current capacity of the battery and wiring, and the capacitance of the capacitor. This represents an instantaneous short circuit, which lasts for a (usually) very short time - but damage could be done if there was no resistance. A charged capacitor that is suddenly disconnected from a battery will hold that voltage. The length of time it will hold is dependent on how much leakage current there is.
