by Ron Kurtus (13 May 2014)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.



1. What is the purpose of glass in a Leyden Jar?

It allows you to see the electrical charges

It separates and insulates the opposite charges

It conducts electricity from one side to the other

2. How do you charge a capacitor?

Provide AC electricity to its terminals

Attach it to a light bulb

Provide DC electricity to its terminals

3. What is the best way to directly store AC electricity?

Use an AC capacitor

You can't directly store AC

Connect to a wall outlet

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Physics. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
