potential by an amount equal to the poten-tial drop produced when the current passesthrough the resistors.
9. Multiply the current in the circuit by theresistance of the individual resistor.
10. A series circuit is used as a voltage divider.11. A voltage divider produces a voltage source
of desired magnitude from a higher-voltagebattery.
12. The resistance of a photoresistor depends onthe amount of light that strikes it. A pho-toresistor is made a material that naturallyhas a higher resistance in the dark.
13. A circuit that includes a photoresistor isused in a light meter. The electronic circuitdetects the potential difference and convertsit to a measurement of illuminance.

reduce the problem to a set of series circuitsand a set of parallel circuits. Combine theresistances of the parallel circuits into onecircuit, and calculate the single equivalentresistance that can replace them. That leavesonly a series circuit. Add the resistors inseries to calculate the equivalent resistance.

Section 23-1 Quiz1. The equivalent resistance is the sum of all
the individual resistances along the seriescircuit. To calculate equivalent resistance in aseries circuit, add all the individual resis-tances of the resistors (R. " R
2. A voltage divider is a series circuit used toproduce a voltage source of desired magni-tude from a higher-voltage battery. To createa voltage divider, a circuit designer wouldconnect two resistors in a series circuit withthe battery. The desired voltage is the voltagedrop that can be measured across the secondresistor. The values of the two resistorswould be chosen based on the voltage of thebattery and the desired voltage.

Section 23-2 Quiz1. When a short circuit occurs, the electricity is
traveling along a shorter path because a siz-able part of the circuit has been cut out.There is a higher-current intensity in the partof the circuit that remains. A fuse is a shortpiece of metal that melts when too muchcurrent passes through it. The fuse acts as asafety device by preventing this high currentflow from continuing and possibly causingan electrical fire.
2. An ammeter measures current in any part ofa circuit. To use an ammeter, place it inseries in the circuit in the place where youwant to measure the current. A voltmetermeasures the voltage drop across a resistor.Connect the voltmeter in parallel to theresistor to measure the voltage drop.
