vocab wordsDefinition Example sentence
Breadboard A circuit board for writing temporary circuit, usually used for prototype or laboratory work We us bread boards to test experimental electronic circuits
Conventional current The direction of the current flow associated with positive charge in motion. The current flow direction is from a positive and negative potential ,which is in the opposite direction of electron flow A microwave uses conventional current
Current A movement of electrical charges around a closed path or circuit The current of the water was strong and fast
Digital A way of representing a physical quantity by a series of binary numbers.A digital representation can have only specific discrete value My teacher showed me digital number of how many dogs there were on the screen
Digital Multi -Meter A piece of test equipment uses to measure voltage ,current, and resistance in an electronic circuit. We didn’t know the valtage so me and my friends used the multi- meter
Engineering notation A floating system in which number are expressed as products consisting of numbers greater than one multiplied by an appropriate power of ten that is some multiple of three Engineers use engineering nations to complete work
Kirchhoff current Law(KCL) The algebraic sum of all current into and out any branch point in a circuit must equal zero Kirchhoff’ current Law
Kirchhoff's voltage Law(KVL) The algebraic sum of all voltages around any closed path must equal zero Kirchhoff’s voltage Law makes sure every closed path equals zero
LED Lighting- emitting diode.AN electronic device that conducts current in one direction only and illuminates when it conducting I put LED lights around my room
ohms Unit of resistance. Value of one ohms allows current of one emperor with potential difference of one volt it takes a certain amount of ohms to power up the flash light
Ohms law In electric circuits, I equals V/R ohms law requires Voltage and resistance
Parallel circuit One that has two or more branches for separate current from one voltage source i have parallel circuit running in my room
Resistance Opposition to current. Unit is the ohms Over time the patient could develop a resistance to the drug.
Resistor color code Coding system of colored stripes on a resistor to indicate there is a resistors value of tolerance We used resistor color code in our class to figure out the resistance tolerance
Scientific notation Numbers entered as a number from 1 to 10 multiplied by power of 10 We multiplied 4 muiltiplied but the power of ten is called scientific notion
Series circuitS I space notation one that has only one path current A parallel circuit is an example of a series circuit si space notation
SI notation Abbreviation of a system international, a system of practical units based on the meter, kilograms, second, and prayer, Calvin, mole, and candela The metric system uses si notion
Solder Metallic alloy of tin that is used to join two metal surface i solder two metallic alloys tin my metal board
soldering Process of joining tomb metallic surface to make an electrical contact by melting sholder(usually tin and lead)aross them me and my friends were soldering in our engineering class
Soldiering iron Tool with an internal heating element used to heat surfaces being soldered to the point where the solder becomes molten We used the soldering iron to combine town metals
Analog A way of representing some physical quantity, such as temperature or velocity, by a proportional continuous voltage or current can have any value within a defined range. The analog on my computer was super fast
