Electricity

Resistance, Insulators, Fuse, Series Circuit, Static Electricity...

TermDefinition
Insulator A material that doesn't allow electrons to flow through it easily.
Conductor A material that allows electrons to flow freely through it.
Induction The rearrangement of electrons on a neutral object, caused by a nearby charged object.
Volt Unit used to measure voltage.
Ampere (Amp) Unit used to measure current.
Fuse A device used to keep electrical circuits from overheating.
Resistance The tendency for a material to oppose the flow of electrons.
Ohm Unit used to measure resistance.
Ohm's Law The statement that current is equal to the voltage difference, divided by the resistance.
Series Circuit A path that allows only one route for an electric current.
Parallel Circuit A circuit that has two or more branches for electrons to follow.
Static Electricity Electric charge that has accumulated on an object.
Electrical Power The rate at which an electrical device converts energy from one form to another.
Electroscope A device that can detect the presence of a static electric charge.
Relationship among Power, Current, and Voltage Power(P)= Current(I) x Voltage(V)
Calculation of Electrical Energy Energy(E)= Power(P) x Time(T)
Circuit Breaker A device designed to open an overloaded circuit and prevent overheating.
Power The rate at which appliances consume energy.
Kilowatt-Hours SI unit of electrical energy
