vi) Wire 
Electric cell :- has a positive terminal and a negative 
terminal. The symbol of an electric cell has a longer line 
and a shorter line. The longer line is the positive terminal 
and the shorter line is the negative terminal. 
Battery :- A battery is a combination of two or more cells. In 
a battery the positive terminal of one cell is connected to 
the negative terminal of another cell. Devices like torches, 
transistors, toys, TV remote controls use batteries.

2) A simple electric circuit :- 
   A simple electric circuit can be made by using a cell, 
electric bulb, switch and wires. 
  The bulb glows only when the switch is in the ON position 
and the circuit is closed.

3) Heating effect of electric current :- 
    When electric current flows through a wire, the wire gets 
heated. This is called the heating effect of electric current. 
Activity :- 
   Make an electric circuit as shown in the figure. Take a 10 
cm long nichrome wire and tie it between the two nails. 
Switch on the current. After a few seconds touch the wire. 
The wire feels hot. Then switch off the current. After a few 
seconds touch the wire again. It does not feel hot. This 
shows that when electric current flows through a wire, it 
gets heated.
