Questions & Answers

Q: What are the two types of batteries mentioned in the video?

The two types of batteries are primary batteries (non-rechargeable) and secondary batteries (rechargeable).

Q: Give examples of primary batteries discussed in the video.

Examples of primary batteries include alkaline batteries, zinc carbon batteries, and button cell batteries.

Q: How can the voltage of batteries be increased?

The voltage of batteries can be increased by connecting them in series. Each additional battery will add to the overall voltage.

Q: How can the current output of batteries be increased?

The current output of batteries can be increased by connecting them in parallel. Each additional battery will increase the total current output.

Summary & Key Takeaways

  • Batteries can be divided into two types: primary batteries (non-rechargeable) and secondary batteries (rechargeable).

  • Primary batteries include alkaline batteries, zinc carbon batteries, and button cell batteries. Secondary batteries include lead acid and lithium-ion batteries.

  • Connecting batteries in series increases voltage, while connecting them in parallel increases current output.
