TermDefinition
How is electric current made? when electric charges are made to flow through a material they provide an electric curent
Electric Current the contentious flow of electric charges through a material
what is electric current measured in? Amperes or amps or a
Electric Circuit a compete, unbroken path that charges can flow through
How do conductors differ from insulators? the atoms in conductors have loosely bound electrons that can move freely. electrons in insulators cannot move freely among atoms
Conductor a material through which charges can flow easily
Insulator a material such as rubber, that do not allow charges to flow through
What affects current flow? current flow is effected by energy of the properties of the objects that charges flow through
Voltage the difference in electric potential energy per charge between two points in a circuit
Resistance the measure of how different it is for charges to flow through an object
The more resistance = less current
What are the 4 factors that determine Resistance? diameter, length, material, and temperature
