What would you like to do?
A circuit having two or more branches for current to flow from a single point is called a radial circuit.
The basic requirements are a power source, a closed circuit and some form of resistance on it to work.
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…eated by the coil around it. The movement trips the switch that cuts the current, and usually stays mechanically latched off until re-set by a local or remote control. (Some circuit-breakers, called auto-reclosers, re-set themselves once the overload has passed. These are typically used on grid transmission-lines.)
That's an "open" circuit.
Any complete circuit. ==== An electrical circuit.
Copper is the first choice followed by the use of aluminium. These two are the most common in use today as conductors.
an opposition to current flow that occurs in alternating current circuit is called?
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 …components used in the circuit.
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.
If there are two alternate paths for current to flow, that's called a parallel circuit.
