An electrical switch is any device that is used to interrupt the flow of electrons in a circuit. Switches are essentially binary devices: they are either completely on (“closed”) or completely off (“open”). So you can say that a switch is an electrical component that can “break” or “make” an electrical circuit.
Aim is to demonstrate how to “make” or “break” an electrical circuit with the help of a switch.


Learning Outcomes

  1. This physics experiment highlights that an electrical switch is any device that is used to interrupt the flow of electrons in a circuit.
  2. Students learn that switches are essentially binary devices: they are either completely on (“closed”) or completely off (“open”).
  3. Correlation between theory and practical becomes easier
