what is a photon the smallest quantity of electromagnetic radiation,just as an atom is the smallest part of an element.
what is another name for photon quantum
photons are constantly changing in variation called what sine waves

electrical potential is known as potential difference,electromotive force
how is electrical current measured measured in amperes(A)
what does the ampere measures measures the number of electrons flowing in the electric circuit
how is electric resistance measured electric resistance is measured in ohms
how does electrons flow in alternating current(AC) electrons flow back and forth on a conductor

in United States,electrical circuits operate in what 60-cycle alternating current.One cycle has two pulses of current-one negative-one positive
in what ways can you control electric current conductor,insulator,resistor
what is a conductor any substance in which electrons can flo through easily-cooper,water
what is a insulator any substance that doe not allow electron flow,confines electrons to the conductor-rubber
what is a resistor any substance that inhibits the flow of electrons
what is a electric circuit when the conductor is made into a closed path
what are the two kinds of circuits series and parallel
what is a series circuit all circuit elements are connected in a line along the same conductor(old christmas lights)

what is ferromagnetic strongly affected by a magnetic(iron,cobalt and nickel)
what is paramagnetic in between (MRI contrast,tungsten)
what is electromagnetism uses electricity and magnets to induce an electric current
what is a solenoid a coil of wire through which electric current flows
what is an electromagnet a current-carrying coil of wire wrapped around an iron core,which intensifies the magnetic field
what is Faraday's law states that an electric current is induced to flow in a circuit if that circuit is in a moving magnetic field
what is self-induction induction of a opposing voltage in a single coil by its own changing magnetic field
what is mutual induction the generation of an alternating current in a secondary coil by supplying an alternating current to the primary coil
what is a electric generator a coil of wire is rotated in a magnetic field,causing a current to be generated in the wire,used to converted mechanical energy int electrical energy
what is a electric motor in an x-ray tube,an induction motor is used-an induction motor powers the rotating anode of an x-ray tube
what is a transformer a electrical device operating on the principle of mutual induction to change the magnitude of current & voltage
what is a step-up transformer if there is more coil windings on the secondary side of the core than on the first-voltage increases
what is a step-down transformer if there are less coil windings on the secondary side than the primary side-voltage decreases
