Electricity Data

Science Words about electricity

circuit a special type of network, one that has a closed loop giving a return path for the current
conductor a material allowing the flow of electrical charge
electric current a flow of electric charge through a conductive medium
electric discharge describes any flow of electric charge through a gas, liquid or solid
electric field the region of space surrounding electrically charged particles and time-varying magnetic fields.
electric force law of physics describing the electrostatic interaction between electrically charged particles
electric power the rate at which electric energy is transferred by an electric circuit
insulator a substance that resists electric current
ion an atom or molecule in which the total number of electrons is not equal to the total number of protons, giving it a net positive or negative electrical charge
ohm's law the current through a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the potential difference across the two points
paralled circuit Components of an electrical circuit or electronic circuit can be connected in many different ways
resistance the opposition to the passage of an electric current through that element; the inverse quantity is electrical conductance, the ease at which an electric current passes.
series circuit Components connected in parallel are connected so the same voltage is applied to each component.
static charge an excess of electric charge trapped on the surface of an object
voltage the electric potential difference between two points — or the difference in electric potential energy of a unit test charge transported between two points
