Changes in Circuits

It is possible to change lots of different things about a circuit.

For example – you could:

1. Add more batteries  this would supply more energy to the circuit by increasing the voltage.  It would make any bulbs brighter, any buzzers louder and any motors move faster

2. Add more bulbs, buzzers or motors – If you kept the number of batteries the same they would be dimmer, quieter or slower.

3. Use batteries with a higher voltage – The higher the voltage the more energy they supply so it would make any bulbs, buzzers or motors brighter, louder or faster.
