# Ch 12: Circuits in Physics: Help and Review

The Circuits in Physics chapter of this Physics 101: Help and Review course is the simplest way to master circuits in physics. This chapter uses simple and fun videos that are about five minutes long, plus lesson quizzes and a chapter exam to ensure you learn the essentials of circuits in physics.

## Who's It For?

Anyone who needs help learning or mastering material on circuits in physics will benefit from the lessons in this chapter. There is no faster or easier way to learn about circuits. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who have fallen behind in understanding types of electric currents and circuits
• Students who struggle with learning disabilities or learning differences, including autism and ADHD
• Students who prefer multiple ways of learning science (visual or auditory)
• Students who have missed class time and need to catch up
• Students who need an efficient way to learn about circuits in physics
• Students who struggle to understand their teachers
• Students who attend schools without extra science learning resources

## How It Works:

• Find videos in our course that cover what you need to learn or review.
• Press play and watch the video lesson.
• Refer to the video transcripts to reinforce your learning.
• Test your understanding of each lesson with short quizzes.
• Verify you're ready by completing the Circuits in Physics chapter exam.

## Why It Works:

• Study Efficiently: Skip what you know, review what you don't.
• Retain What You Learn: Engaging animations and real-life examples make topics easy to grasp.
• Be Ready on Test Day: Use the Circuits in Physics chapter exam to be prepared.
• Get Extra Support: Ask our subject-matter experts any circuits question. They're here to help!
• Study With Flexibility: Watch videos on any web-ready device.

## Students Will Review:

This chapter helps students review the concepts in a circuits unit of a standard introductory physics course. Topics covered include:

• Qualities of good conductors and insulators
• Types of electric current
• Variables that affect electrical resistance
• The relationship among voltage, current and resistance
• Electrical power
• Applications of Kirchhoff's Rules
• RLC series, AC and RC circuits
• Impedance and reactance
• Calculating power for alternating current circuits
