Electricity & Magnetism
This unit was about Electricityand Magnetism. We basically experimented how does electricity work like the two different circuits. With magnets we took some magnets and iron fillings and the iron gets attracted to the magnet, but we put the magnet inside a plastic bag because if it sticks to the magnet it is hard to take it out and like that it was easier.We also learned the magnetic fields.
What did we learned:
The first thing that we learned was the 10 forms of energy.The 10 forms of energy are:
- Thermal (heat)
- Kinetic energy (movement)
- Gravitational potential
- Chemical (stored)
The we learned the two types of circuits, that are: Parallel and Series circuit. We also learned how to measure the current and voltage.
This is a summary of the part of Electricity.
The second part is Magnetism.
We learned the two poles north and south, the magnetic field and how does an electric bell work and the electromagnets that are magnets that can be turned on or off and they have electricity.This is a picture of the electromagnet.
What did I enjoyed:
In this unit I enjoyed basically everything because I thought it was a really interesting unit to learn about and the best part was when we went to the lab and we did the experiment with magnets.
What could have been improved:
I think I did really good so I don’t think there is nothing to improve and I am proud of myself.
What I was good at:
I got good grades for this whole unit so I think it was good. The magnet experiment I did it well .For an activity that was making your own circuit I was doing it alone and it went pretty good.
I thought this unit was an interesting topic to learn about because without electricity there is a lot of things that would stop working or at night, we won’t have light so we would have to use candles to have light.
The experiments that we did they were useful because sometimes the things are clearer if you see them with your eyes then if you learn it because maybe you learn everything but you don’t know what you are talking about.
I enjoyed this unit a lot and I had a lot of fun.
