Please be more specific....simply replacing the breaker with a 20 amp may cause a fire; if the cable is sized for 15 amp and is overloaded. Your 15 amp breaker is probably feeding #14 wire. The use of a 20 amp breaker requires at least a #12 wire be used. Fire hazard if breakers and wiring are not sized correctly.

Where does energy leave a circuit?

I assume you mean electricity not energy. The electrical energy doesn't leave the circuit as such it is converted by a component. E.G. A bulb in a circuit will convert the electrical energy into light and some heat.

Collisions of electrons with other particles in a circuit convert electrical energy or charge?

That will convert the electrical energy into heat energy. Charge is not converted to anything; charge is maintained. What you are describing is called "resistance".


Does a motor provide energy for a circuit?

A motor does not provide energy. It converts electrical energy to mechanical energy. From a circuit standpoint, the motor is considered a load (similar to a resistor). Resistors convert electrical energy to heat energy.
