Copy and paste the following questions on your Edublog and provide answers in full sentences:
Define the following terms:
Electron: A stable subatomic particle with a charge of negative electricity, found in all atoms and acting as the primary carrier of electricity.
Neutron: A subatomic particle of about the same mass as a proton but without an electric charge, present in all atomic nuclei.
Proton: A stable subatomic particle occurring in all atomic nuclei, with a positive electric charge equal in magnitude to that of an electron, but of opposite sign.
Conductor: An electrical conductor is a substance in which electrical charge carriers, usually electrons, move easily from atom to atom with the application of voltage.
Insulator: A thing or substance used for insulation, in particular. A substance that does not readily allow the passage of heat or sound. A substance or device that does not readily conduct electricity.
Current: A thing or substance used for insulation, in particular.
a substance that does not readily allow the passage of heat or sound.
noun: insulator; plural noun: insulators
“cotton is a poor insulator”
a substance or device that does not readily conduct electricity.
Voltage: The Royal Rifles of Canada and the Winnipeg Grenadiers sailed from Vancouver on October 27, 1941, aboard the Awatea, escorted by HMCS Prince Robert.
Resistance: Is an electrical quantity that measures how the device or material reduces the electric current flow through it.
Series Circuit: Is a closed circuit in which the current follows one path, as opposed to a parallel circuit where the circuit is divided into two or more paths. In a series circuit, the current through each load is the same and the total voltage across the circuit is the sum of the voltages across each load.
Switch: A device for making and breaking the connection in an electric circuit.
Cell: A single unit for electrolysis or conversion of chemical into electric energy, usually consisting of a container with electrodes and an electrolyte; a battery, also called electrochemical cell. Or a single unit that converts radiant energy into electric energy: a solar cell.
Parallel Circuit: Is a closed circuit in which the current divides into two or more paths before recombining to complete the circuit. Each load connected in a separate path receives the full circuit voltage, and the total circuit current is equal to the sum of the individual branch currents.
Where are electrons located in an atom?: The electrons are located outside circling the atom at extreme speeds.
What charge does an electron have?: An Electron has a Negative charge (-).
What charge does a proton have?: A Proton has a Positive Charge (+).
What is all matter made of?: All matter is made up of what atoms and molecules are made of, meaning anything made of positively charged protons, neutral neutrons, and negatively charged electrons.
What supplies energy in order to move electricity through a circuit?: A wire is what moves electricity through a circuit and gets powered by a battery.
List 5 examples of insulators: 5 or more insulators I can think of is plastic, thread, wood, glass, and rubber.
What is the most common conductor used in wire?: The most common conductor used in a wire is copper.
What is the outside coating of a wire made of? Why is this important?: The outside coating of a wire is made up of rubber because it’s an insulator that repels electricity, that is why electricity can’t get out of the wire.
Describe in a short paragraph, how your group will design, construct, and assemble the circuit for your robot mask and controller.: Me and my partner(s) will create the robot mask by starting to design the cables that connect the remote control to the mask, the RC will have 5 buttons, 3 buttons for a red light, yellow light, and green light. Then a button for a blue light to show where to go right or left, and a special button to control the switches. All of these lights will be in the robot’s mask to guide the person through the maze.
What communication system will your group use to navigate the robot? Describe your legend below.
O with x in the middle= Lightbulb
_____ = wire
| I = battery
