Sample flash cards in this set:
|The flow of electrons.
|A measure of how much potential energy an electron has in one place compared to another place. The correct name for what is often called "voltage" or "electromotive force."
|Measurement of current flow through a conductor.
|A substance or material that allows electrons, or electrical current, to flow through it.
|The path followed by a flow of electric current.
|Energy used to do work measured in watts.
|A unit of electrical resistance defined as the resistance of a circuit with a voltage of one volt and a current flow of one ampere.
|A unit of electromotive force. The electrical potential needed to produce one ampere of current with a resistance of one ohm.
|The movement of electrons in a conductor measured in Amperes.
|1) Work done by the force of one neutron when its point of application moves through the distance of one meter in the direction of the force. 2) One watt-second.
|A unit for measuring electric power.
|Electricity produced by a surplus or a shortage of electrons in an object.
|A basic particle in an atom's nucleus that has a positive charge.
|A negatively charged particle that orbits the nucleus of an atom. The flow of electrons produces electricity.
|A basic particle in an atom's nucleus that has a neutral electrical charge.
|The opposition to current flow, expressed in ohms.
|Electric current in which electrons flow in one direction only. Opposite of alternating current.
|Alternating Current (AC)
|Electric current that reverses directions at regular intervals.
|Any material that will not allow electricity to easily flow through.
