2013 unit 2 as elect

charge carriers are + ions or electrons in an electrolyte, electrons in a conductor
Coulomb the charge supplied by a current of 1 amp in 1 second
Current the charge supplied by a current of 1 amp in 1 second
Drift velocity the average velocity of an electron when it travels through a wire due to an applied pd
Electromotive force the electrical energy transferred per unit charge from other forms of energy
Kilowatt hour a unit of energy equal to 1 kw for 1 hour (or 3.6 Mj)
Kirchoffs first law (due to conservation of charge) the total current flowing into a junction is the same as the total out.
Kirchoffs second law (due to conservation of energy) sum of the e.m.f.s around a closed loop = sum of the p.d.s
Ohm a volt per amp ( VA-1)
Ohm's Law current through a conductor is proportional to the potential difference across it provided temperature remains constant
Potential difference energy transfer per unit charge from electrical to other forms
Power energy transfer /work done per unit time
Resistance p.d./current
Resistivity resistivity=resistance x cross section area/length
Terminal p.d. the potential difference available from the output terminals of a source of electricalenergy when current flows
Volt joule per coulomb (JC-1)

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.
