Electrical Circuit

TermDefinition
Ohms Law i=v/r i=current(amps)(amperes) v= voltage (volts) r=resistance (ohms)
Voltage A force that pushes the current through the circuit(in the picture it would be equivalent to gravity
Resistance Friction that impedes flow of current through the circuit( rock in the river)(when river flow hits a rock)
Current The actual substance that is flowing through the wires of the circuit(electronic)
Measuring Current Electrical current is measured in amps(a) using an ammeter connected in series
Measuring Voltage The electrical push which the cell gives to the current is called the voltage. it is measured in volts(v) on a voltmeter
Series circuit All in a row 1 path for electricity 1 light goes out and the circuit is broken
Parallel Circuit many paths for electricity 1 light goes out and the others stay on
