Electricity Vocab

Insulators is a material whose internal electric charges do not flow freely, and therefore make it nearly impossible to conduct an electric current under the influence of an electric field.
magnetic field a region around a magnetic material or a moving electric charge within which the force of magnetism acts.
Parallel and Series the two simplest are called series and occur frequently
Diode a semiconductor device with two terminals, typically allowing the flow of current in one direction only.
Circuit a roughly circular line, route, or movement that starts and finishes at the same place.
Transistor a semiconductor device with three connections, capable of amplification in addition to rectification.
Chemical a compound or substance that has been purified or prepared, especially artificially
MRI a technique that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues within your body.
Series Circuit a closed circuit in which the current follows one path, as opposed to a parallel circuit where the circuit is divided into two or more paths.
Electric Current a flow of electric charge.
P=IV a method to measure velocities in fluid.
Direct Current an electric current flowing in one direction only.
Transformer an apparatus for reducing or increasing the voltage of an alternating current.
Ohm's Law A law relating the voltage difference between two points, the electric current flowing between them, and the resistance of the path of the current.
Static Charge
Electronic Signal
