Magnetism And Electricity Test For 4th Grade! Trivia Quiz - Quiz


Are you ready for your 4th-grade magnetism and electricity test? Here is a quiz for you. Magnetism and electricity are mutually dependent on one another. Electricity creates magnetism and vice versa. Whenever you have a traveling charge, you have magnetism. Forces can be applied at a distance between magnetism and electricity. For example, static electricity can attract objects without even touching them. It shouldn’t be a shock when you pass this quiz.

  • 4. 

    Since __________ charges repel, every hair on your head is now trying to get away from every other hair. The best way is to stand straight up. 

    • A.

      Unlike

    • B.

      Dislike

    • C.

      Looklike

    • D.

      Welike

    • E.

      Like

    Correct Answer
    E. Like
    Explanation
    Like charges repel, meaning that they push away from each other. In this case, the hair on your head carries a positive charge and is trying to get away from every other hair, which also carries a positive charge. The best way for the hair to achieve this is by standing straight up, as it allows the hairs to move as far away from each other as possible.

    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _charge makes the balloon move towards the wall and stick there even after you move your hand. It also pulls the hair on your arm towards the balloon, even though your arm is not touching it. When the balloon does touch your arm, it loses its electric charge

    • A.

      Unlike (charges attract, so the balloon sticks to you)

    • B.

      Don't like each other

    • C.

      Live next door to each other

    • D.

      See each other out for dinner

    • E.

      Eat tuna fish

    Correct Answer
    A. Unlike (charges attract, so the balloon sticks to you)
    Explanation
    Charges attract each other, so when the balloon is charged, it is attracted to the opposite charges on the wall and sticks there. This is why the balloon moves towards the wall and sticks there even after you move your hand away. The same principle applies to the hair on your arm. The charged balloon attracts the opposite charges in the hair, causing it to be pulled towards the balloon. When the balloon touches your arm, it loses its electric charge and the attraction is no longer present.

    Correct Answer
    A. 1st part of producing lightning
    Explanation
    The given statement states that positive charges build upon the top of the cloud and negative charges build up on the bottom of the cloud. This is the first part of producing lightning, as it sets up the necessary conditions for a lightning strike to occur.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Lightning occurs when

    • A.

      Positive charges build up on the top of the cloud and negative charges build up on the bottom of the cloud.

    • B.

      This leaves the ground and the objects on the ground with positive charges.

    • C.

      When negative charges jump between the cloud and the ground, there is a giant electrical discharge or spark.

    • D.

      The moon is dark.

    • E.

      The pyramids face the sun on a very hot day.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Positive charges build up on the top of the cloud and negative charges build up on the bottom of the cloud.
    B. This leaves the ground and the objects on the ground with positive charges.
    C. When negative charges jump between the cloud and the ground, there is a giant electrical discharge or spark.
    Explanation
    Lightning occurs when positive charges build up on the top of the cloud and negative charges build up on the bottom of the cloud. This charge separation leaves the ground and the objects on the ground with positive charges. When the electrical potential difference becomes large enough, negative charges jump between the cloud and the ground, resulting in a giant electrical discharge or spark, which we perceive as lightning.

    • A.

      The Milky way

    • B.

      Planet Earth

    • C.

      Jupiter

    • D.

      Positive charges build up on the top of the cloud and negative charges build up on the bottom of the cloud.

    • E.

      Neptune

    Correct Answer
    D. Positive charges build up on the top of the cloud and negative charges build up on the bottom of the cloud.
    Explanation
    As a cloud moves through the atmosphere, it encounters different charges in the air and on the ground. The movement of the cloud causes positive charges to accumulate at the top and negative charges to accumulate at the bottom. This is due to the separation of charges caused by the movement of water droplets and ice particles within the cloud. The positive charges at the top of the cloud are attracted to the negative charges on the ground, creating an imbalance of charges that can lead to lightning strikes.

    • E.

      Toothpaste flavor red and orange mixed together with salt

    Correct Answer
    A. Lightning
    Explanation
    Lightning refers to a giant electrical discharge or spark that occurs during a thunderstorm. It is a natural phenomenon caused by the build-up of electrical charges in the atmosphere. When the electrical potential difference between the clouds and the ground becomes too great, it results in a rapid discharge of electricity in the form of a bright flash of light, commonly known as lightning. This discharge can occur within a cloud, between clouds, or between a cloud and the ground.

    • E.

      The path the earth tilts

    Correct Answer
    B. The path the electrical current flows
    Explanation
    An electrical circuit is the path that electrical current flows through. It is a closed loop that allows the flow of electrons from a power source, such as a battery or generator, to a load, such as a light bulb or motor. The circuit is made up of conductive materials, such as wires, and components, such as resistors, capacitors, and switches, that control the flow of current. The path must be complete for the current to flow, and any breaks or interruptions in the circuit will prevent the flow of electricity.

    • E.

      Support the science teacher.

    Correct Answer
    A. The flow of electricity.
    Explanation
    A closed circuit allows the flow of electricity because it forms a complete pathway for the electric current to travel. In a closed circuit, the electrical energy can flow from the power source, through the wires or conductors, and back to the power source, enabling the electrical devices or components to work properly. Without a closed circuit, the flow of electricity would be interrupted, and the electrical devices would not function.

    Rate this question:

    • B.

      False

    • C.

      Maybe

    • D.

      Who knows

    • E.

      I know

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    An electrical circuit is designed to allow the flow of electricity, providing a complete path for the current to travel. It consists of interconnected components such as wires, resistors, and capacitors. On the other hand, an open circuit does not provide a complete path for the current to flow, resulting in the prevention of electrical current. This can occur when a switch is open or when there is a break in the circuit. Therefore, the statement "An Electrical Circuit allows the flow of electricity and Open Circuit prevents the flow of electrical current" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    An Open Circuit

    • A.

      Sees many flags in the sea.

    • B.

    • E.

      Knows the correct answer.

    Correct Answer
    C. Prevents the flow of electrical current.
    Explanation
    An open circuit is a circuit that is not complete, meaning that there is a gap or break in the path for the electrical current to flow. This interruption in the circuit prevents the flow of electrical current, as the current cannot pass through the open circuit. Therefore, the correct answer is "prevents the flow of electrical current."

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    What prevents the flow of electrical current?

    • A.

      A closed circuit

    • B.

      An open circuit

    • C.

      The rainbow

    • D.

      The sea

    • E.

      The mountain

    Correct Answer
    B. An open circuit
    Explanation
    An open circuit prevents the flow of electrical current. In an open circuit, there is a gap or break in the circuit, which interrupts the flow of electrons. This means that the circuit is incomplete, and the current cannot travel from the power source to the load or device. Unlike a closed circuit where the current can flow continuously in a loop, an open circuit acts as a barrier to the flow of electricity.

    • C.

      A new pair of shoes

    • D.

      The big ball

    • E.

      The teeter totter

    Correct Answer
    A. A Closed Circuit
    Explanation
    A closed circuit allows the flow of electricity because it forms a complete path for the electrical current to travel. When a circuit is closed, it means that there is a continuous loop or connection between the power source, such as a battery or outlet, and the electrical device or load. This allows the electrons to flow from the power source through the circuit and back again, enabling the transfer of electrical energy and the functioning of the device.
