A Simple electric circuit is a circuit which includes a power source, a resistor and a switch connected to the each other is series that means a wire connects battery to the switch and the switch is connected to the bulb and the bulb connects back to the other end of the battery.

A diode is an electronic component that allows current to move in one direction through the component.Applications of diodes are

One of the main application of diodes are it converts AC power to DC power.

Diodes steer current and make sure it only flows in the proper direction.

It acts as an protection device for sensitive electronic components.

Energy exists in various forms such as mechanical energy, heat energy, electrical energy etc.When an electric current is passed through a metallic wire like filament of heater, oven or geyser, the filament gets heated up and electrical energy is converted into heat energy. This is known as heating effect of electrical current.

Liquids that possess ions conduct electricity. Some of them are

Distilled water is a poor conductor because it has poor ions but by  adding ionic solids like table salt it increases conductivity.

Tap water is a very good conductor because it has plenty of ions.

Sulfuric or hydrochloric acid when dissolves in water is a good conductor.

Rain water, … Read more

There are two types of circuits series and parallel circuits.

A series circuit type of circuit, that the components are arranged end to end.If there's a gap in a series circuit or maybe one of the components has broken, the current can't flow and so, the whole circuit turns off.

In a parallel circuit,the components don't have … Read more

Voltage, also called electromotive force is the potential difference in charge between two points in an electrical field. The symbol of voltage is V.

Voltage can be direct or alternating. A direct voltage is one which  maintains the polarity same at all times,where as in an alternating voltage, the polarity reverses direction periodically.
