Short Circuits

  1. Select Lab
  2. Build a circuit with wires, and a battery (no resistor/light bulb).
  3. When you've seen what happens, click + "Wire resistivity" and increase the resistivity.







Please answer the questions below.

Write a definition of resistivity based on what you discovered in your investigation.

What happens to a circuit (with low resistivity wires) when there is no resistor? Why?
