## FAQs on Class 6 Science Chapter 9 Question Answers - Electricity and Circuits

 1. What is electricity and how is it generated?
Ans. Electricity is a form of energy that is generated through the flow of electric charge. It is produced by various methods such as burning fossil fuels, nuclear reactions, or harnessing renewable sources like wind, water, or solar energy.
 2. What is a circuit and how does it work?
Ans. A circuit is a path through which electric current can flow. It consists of various components such as wires, switches, and devices like bulbs or motors. When a circuit is complete, the current flows from the power source, through the components, and back to the source, allowing the devices to work.
 3. What are conductors and insulators in electricity?
Ans. Conductors are materials that allow electric current to flow through them easily. Examples of conductors include metals like copper and aluminum. Insulators, on the other hand, are materials that do not allow electric current to flow through them easily. Materials like rubber, plastic, or wood are good insulators.
 4. What is the difference between series and parallel circuits?
Ans. In a series circuit, the components are arranged in a single path, one after another. The current flows through each component in the same direction. In a parallel circuit, the components are arranged in multiple paths, allowing the current to split and flow through each component independently.
 5. How do switches work in a circuit?
Ans. Switches are devices used to control the flow of electric current in a circuit. When the switch is closed or turned on, it completes the circuit and allows the current to flow. When the switch is open or turned off, it breaks the circuit and stops the current flow. Switches are commonly used to control lights or appliances in our homes.
