Circuitos is a Spanish term for circuit. Circuit refers to the
path along which electric current flows from start to finish.

The circuit includes the generator or battery which starts the current, the wires, and any electrical device that the current operates. If any part of the circuit is removed, the current cannot flow. The circuit is then broken or open. Because electric current seeks to complete its circuit, it will travel along any path that is presented (path of least resistance), which is why humans are at risk of electrocution when they handle damaged tools or cords, or contact un-insulated wires. In effect, they become part of the circuit.

Spanish definition - Circuito [Circuit]: El camino a lo largo del cual la corriente eléctrica fluye desde el comienzo hasta el final se llama un circuito. El circuito incluye el generador o la batería, la cual enciende la corriente, los alambres, y cualquier dispositivo eléctrico que funcione con la corriente. Si cualquier pieza del circuito es removida, la corriente no puede fluir. Entonces el circuito está roto o abierto. Debido a que la corriente eléctrica intenta terminar su circuito, viajará a lo largo de cualquier camino que se presente (camino de menos resistencia), por lo cual los seres humanos están en riesgo de electrocuci?n cuando manejan herramientas o cables da?ados, o entran en contacto con alambres sin aislamiento. En efecto, se convierten en parte del circuito.
