Circuit A roughly circular line, route, or movement that starts and finishes at the same place.
Electric field A region around a charged particle or object within which a force would be exerted on other charged particles or objects.
Electric power the product of voltage and current
Ohm's law A law stating that electric current is proportional to voltage and inversely proportional to resistance.
Series circuit a circuit having its parts connected serially.
conductor In physics and electrical engineering, a conductor is a material which contains movable electric charges. In metallic conductors such as copper or aluminum, the movable charged particles are electrons (see electrical conduction).
Ion An atom or molecule with a net electric charge due to the loss or gain of one or more electrons.
Voltage An electromotive force or potential difference expressed in volts.
Electric discharge electrical conduction through a gas in an applied electric field.
Electric force Electromagnetism is the branch of science concerned with the forces that occur between electrically charged particles.
Resistance The refusal to accept or comply with something; the attempt to prevent something by action or argument.
parallele Circuit a closed circuit in which the current divides into two or more paths before recombining to complete the circuit.
Electric Current a flow of electricity through a conductor; "the current was measured in amperes".
Insulator An electrical insulator is a material whose internal electric charges do not flow freely, and which therefore does not conduct an electric current, under the influence of an electric field.
Static charge is an excess of electric charge trapped on the surface of an object. The charge remains until it is allowed to escape to an object with a weaker or opposite electrical charge, such as the ground, by means of an electric current or electrical discharge.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
