electrical potential energy potential energy associated with a charge due to its position in an electric field
electric potential the work that must be performed against electric forces to move a charge from a reference point to the point in question divided by the charge
potential difference the work that must be performed against electric forces to move a charge between the two points in question, divided by the charge
capacitance the ability of a conductor to store energy in the form of electrically separated charges
electric current the rate at which electric charges pass through a given area
drift velocity the net velocity of a charge carrier moving in an electric force
resistance the opposition presented to electric current by a material or device
schematic diagram a representation of a circuit that uses lines to represent wires and different symbols to represent components
electric circuit a set of electrical components connected such that they provide one or more complete paths for the movement of charges
series describes two or more components of a circuit that provide a single path for current
parallel describes two or more components of a circuit that provide separate conducting paths for current because the components across common points or junctions

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:
