Electric Circuit and Circuit Diagram


Electric Circuit

The electric circuits are closed-loop or paths, forming a network of electrical components where electrons can flow. This path is made using electrical wires and is powered by a source, like a battery. The start of the point from where the electrons start flowing is called the source, whereas the point where electrons leave the electrical circuit is called the return. Let’s conduct a small experiment; you would need the following,

  • Electric bulb
  • Wire
  • Electrical tape
  • A battery

Circuit Diagram

The representation of an electric circuit through symbols is called a circuit diagram.
