```									                          Physics Project - 4th Quarter

Purpose:     to   study the use of electricity in your home
to   determine how electricity in dispensed in your home
to   diagram the electric circuit in your room
to   produce a report in PowerPoint

Materials:   electrical devices used in your home
circuit breaker or fuse box in your home
light switches and outlets in your room

Procedure: determine the electricity consumption of 10 devices
find the voltage, resistance, current and power being used by
hair dryer clock radio         microwave        toaster
washer       power tools       computer         stove
television vacuum cleaner lamp

map the circuit breaker or fuse box in your home
number each circuit, total amperes in the circuit, destination

draw a circuit diagram of the outlets/switches in your room
one line for incoming power and separate lines for each outlet

Grading:     individual project (no teams allowed)

30%     devices - in form of a chart with brand name and details
30%     fuse/breaker box - number the circuit, amps, destination
30%     room circuit - use standard electric circuit symbols
10%     colorful, creative cover for your project

Due Date:    A day May 22, 2012 (Tuesday) B day May 2, 2012 (Monday)

Final Grade: Title Page & Presentation            _______
UL Labels                            _______
Breaker box                          _______
Room circuit                         _______
