question
Which of the following statements are true? When an electric field is applied to a conductor, the free electrons move only in the direction opposite the applied electric field. In a circuit, current is delivered by the positive terminal of a battery, and it is used up by the time it returns to the negative terminal of the battery. Current is the total amount of charge that passes through a conductor's full cross section at any point per unit of time. By convention, the direction of a current is taken to be the direction of flow for negative charges. In order to maintain a steady flow of current in a conductor, a steady force must be maintained on the mobile charges.

question
What happens to the resistance of most common metals as the temperature of the metal increases? The resistance remains constant as temperature increases. The resistance decreases as temperature increases. Whether resistance increases or decreases as temperature increases depends on the type of metal. The resistance increases as temperature increases.
The resistance increases as temperature increases.
question
As more resistors are added in parallel across a constant voltage source, the power supplied by the source does not change. decreases. increases.
increases.
question
Which of the following statements are true? Earth's geographic south pole is also a magnetic south pole. The south poles of two bar magnets will repel each other. The north poles of two bar magnets will attract each other. Scientists have evidence that single isolated magnetic poles, called magnetic monopoles, exist. Earth's geographic north pole is actually a magnetic south pole. The north pole of a bar magnet will attract the south pole of another bar magnet.
The south poles of two bar magnets will repel each other. Earth's geographic north pole is actually a magnetic south pole. The north pole of a bar magnet will attract the south pole of another bar magnet.
