### Description

This Exploriment app presents an environment in which you can learn about potential difference, voltage and voltmeter. Compare characteristics of voltage in series and parallel circuits. Use a voltmeter to measure potential difference across one and more devices in a circuit. Understand and verify the cumulative nature of voltage drops in case of devices in series and explore voltage measurement with reference to a base voltage. Are you in for some livewire action? Don’t be shocked!! Try other apps from our Exploriments Electricity series, which makes it very safe to tinker with electricity. The interface puts learning at your fingertips by letting you touch, swipe, flick and move electrical components in and out of circuits, gaining important insights in the process. Benefit from helpful analogies and learn by doing activities with wires, switches, ammeters and more. The Exploriments Series of interactive simulation-based tools makes conceptual learning in science an engaging and insightful experience. Visit www.exploriments.com to know more. Activities: Activity 1: Basic Voltmeter Operation --- Understand how to use a voltmeter to measure potential difference --- Relate voltage terminals and polarity Activity 2: Voltage across a Device --- Explore voltage measurement across devices in a series-parallel combination circuit --- Understand equality of voltage across multiple parallel branches Activity 3: Cumulative Voltage in Series --- Understand the cumulative nature of voltage in series --- Measure, record and verify addition of voltage in series Activity 4: Voltage in Parallel Circuits --- Explore characteristics of voltage in parallel circuits --- Measure, record and verify that potential difference is equal across same set of parallel branches Activity 5: Relative Voltage --- Measurement of voltage drop at a point in the circuit with reference to a base voltage Additional Features: --- Easy and intuitive touch and move interactions for moving devices and wires around --- Worksheets and quizzes for reinforcing conceptual understanding --- Unlimited “RESET” option for practicing with circuits with varying values for each turn
