Electrical Current

Electrical Engineering Terms

Ohm's Law I=V/R Current(Amps)=Voltage(volts)/Resistance(ohms) Created y Georg Simon Ohm
Voltage A force that pushes the current through the circuit
Resistance Friction that impedes the flow of the current through the circuit
Current The actual "substance" that is flowing through the wires of the circuit
Series Circuit All in a row with one path of electricity. If one light goes out all the lights go out
Parallel Circuit Many paths for electricity. If 1 light goes out the rest remain on.
Measuring Currents Electric current is measured in amps(a) using an ammeter connected in series in the current
Measuring Voltage Voltage is measured in volts(v) on a voltmeter.
