Electron Vocab

Circuit ex. a closed conducting loop which electric charges move through
Conductor a person who conducts a leader, guide, director, or manager.
Electric current the time rate of flow of electric charge, in the direction that a positive moving charge would take and having magnitude equal to the quantity of charge per unit time
Electric discharge is the release and transmission of electricity in an applied electric field through a medium such as a gas.
Electric field A region of space characterized by the existence of a force generated by electric charge.
Electric force Two electrically charged objects exert a force upon each other.
Electric power Electric power is the rate at which electric energy is transferred.
Ion an atom or group of atoms that has a positive or negative electric charge from losing or gaining one or more electrons
Insulator a material that allows little or no heat, electricity, or sound to go into or out of something
Ohm’s law the law that for any circuit the electric current is directly proportional to the voltage and is inversely proportional to the resistance.
Parallel circuit a closed electrical circuit in which the current is divided into two or more paths and then returns via a common path to complete the circuit.
Resistance a property of a conductor by virtue of which the passage of current is opposed, causing electric energy to be transformed into heat
Series circuit An electric circuit connected so that current passes through each circuit element in turn without branching.
Static charge a stationary electric charge built up on an insulating material.
Voltage is the electric force that causes the free electrons to move from one atom to another.
