CHEMICAL EFFECTS OF ELECTRIC CURRENT
ELECTRIC CIRCUIT AND CIRCUIT DIAGRAM
It is a closed circuit consisting of wires and resistors along which electrons flow very rapidly when connected between the terminals of a battery. Electric circuit is represented by drawing circuit diagram.
A diagram which shows the actual arrangement of different components in an electric circuit is called a circuit diagram.
In a circuit diagram the actual arrangement of different components of electric circuit is shown by using electrical symbols. The various electrical symbols used in circuit diagrams can be shown as:
