Electricity and Magnetism

electric charge a property that leads to electromagnetic interactions between particles that make up matter
static electricity the buildup of electric charge in an object
electrical conductor a material through which charges move freely
electrical insulator a material through which charge cannot move freely
semiconductor a special class of materials that conduct elctric charge better than insulators but not as well as conductors
electric current the rate of flow of electric charges
resistance the opposition to the flow of electric charge
voltage the amount of work required to move each unit of charge between two points
electric circuit a complete, closed path through which electrical currents flow
series curcuit a circuit in which all parts are connected in a row that forms one path for the electric charges to flow
parallel curcuit a circuit in which electrical charges have more than one path they can follow
magnet any material that attracts iron or objects made out of iron
magnetic force the push or pull that magnets exert on eachother
magnetic pole an end on a magnet
magnetic field the area around the magnet where magnetic forces can be detected
