TermDefinition
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
