Would you like to merge this question into it?

#### already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

Closed circuit

conductors

# What is a circuit with two or more branches for current to flow called?

A circuit having two or more branches for current to flow from a single point is called a radial circuit.

A conductor.

# What conditions are needed to allow current to flow in the circuit?

The basic requirements are a power source, a closed circuit and some form of resistance on it to work.

# What is a circuit called if its operating and the current is flowing?

This is called a closed circuit.   If current was not flowing, it would be open.

# What happens to the steel cylinder on the circuit breaker if a large current flows through the coil?

I take it you mean the iron (rather than steel) core of the solenoid. If the current reaches the limit set, it is attracted against a spring by the resulting magnetic field cr

# What is a circuit path called that has a break in it preventing current from flowing?

That's an "open" circuit.

resistance

# What kind of circuit allows a current to flow through?

Any complete circuit. ==== An electrical circuit.

# What are some conductive materials that will allow current to flow in a circuit?

Copper is the first choice followed by the use of aluminium. These two are the most common in use today as conductors.

# What is the opposition to current flow in a circuit called?

an opposition to current flow that occurs in alternating current circuit is called?

No.

non conductor

# What is a circuit which will allow flowing current?

As long as an electrical power source is connected to itself with electrical conductors of some kind, then a current will flow through it. How much current will depend on the

# What is a type of circuit where current by passes most resistance and large dangerous currents flow?

A short circuit. In a properly installed system the fuse will blow to prevent a fire.
In Physics

# What do you call a circuit of two paths for current to flow?

If there are two alternate paths for current to flow, that's called a parallel circuit.
