electric charge a fundamental property that leads to the electromagnetic interactions among particles that made up matter
static charge electric charges at rest; generally produced by friction or induction
electrical conductor a material in which charges can move freely
electrical insulator a material in which charges can not move freely
semiconductor an element or compound that conducts electric current better than an insulator does but not as well as a conductor does
electric current the rate at which electric charges pass a given point
resistance in physical science, the opposition presented to the current by a material or device
voltage the amount of work to move a unit electric charge between 2 points; expressed in volts
electrical circuit a set of electrical components connected such that they provide one or more complete paths for the movement of charges
series circuit a circuit in which the parts are joined one after another such that the current in each part is the same
parallel circuit a circuit in which the parts are joined in branches such that the voltage across each part is the same
