If the bulb was exchanged for a motor. 14: N.C. 4.Unit 4F: Changing circuits Changing circuits How can you change the brightness of the bulb? List all the things you could change to do this. how could the speed of the motor be changed? How could the loudness of a buzzer be changed? Unit 4F: Changing circuits: L. 11.

Unit 4F: Summary Concept Map Bulb brighter Switch can break a circuit Need a power source Motor faster Buzzer louder Bulb dimmer Motor slower Buzzer quieter Allow electricity through Some better than others Needs to be complete Circuits and Conductors Do not allow electricity through Cables Wires Metals are good Non-metal Unit 4F: Summary .
