Term | Definition | Example |
---|---|---|

Breadboard | A circuit board for wiring temporary circuits,usually used for prototypes or laboratory work. | To construct an experimental model of (an electric circuit, for example). |

Conventional Current | The direction of current flow associated with positive charge in motion.The current flow direction is from positive to negative potential, which is in the opposite direction of electrons flow. | Conventional is defined as someone or something widely accepted, or something related to a convention. |

Current | A movement of electrical charges around a closed path or circuit. | Current is defined as the movement of water in a specific direction. |

Digital | A way of representing a physical quantity by a series of binary numbers. a digital representation can have only specific values. | using numbers that are digits to represent all the variables involved in calculation |

Digital Multi Meter (DMM) | A piece of test equipment used to measure voltage, current and resistance in an electronics circuit. | something with many colors. |

Engineering Notation | A floating point system in which numbers are expressed as products consisting of a number greater than one multiple of three | |

Kirchhoff Current law (KCL) | The algebraic sum of all currents into and out of any branch point in a circuit must equal zero | |

Kirchhoffś Voltage law (KVL) | The algebraic sum of all voltage around any closed path must equal zero. | |

LED | Light-emitting diode. An electronic device that conducts current in one direction only and illuminates when it is conduction | He retrieved his hat and quietly led his horse away. |

Ohm | Unit of resistance. value of one ohm allow current of one ampere with potential difference of one volt | The standard ohm, sub-standards up to 100,000 ohms, and below 1 ohm to = 1/1000 ohm. |

Ohmś law | In electric circuits, I=VR | |

Resistance | Opposition to current.Unit is the ohm, | They have shown a stubborn resistance to change |

Resistor color code | Coding system of colored stripes on a resistor to indicate the resistor value and tolerance | Mnemonics are used to help memorize the electronic color codes of electronic components such as resistors |

Scientific Notation | Numbers entered as a number from one to ten multiplied by a power of ten. | Scientific notation is a mathematical expression used to represent a decimal number between 1 and 10 multiplied by ten, so you can write large numbers using less digits. |

Series Circuit | One that has only one path current. | Any electric circuit having all elements joined in a sequence such that the same current flows through them all |

Solder | Metallic alloy of tin and lead that is used to join two metal surface | These do-it-yourself kits are available in a wide variety of types, and each kit includes everything you will need to complete the job including solar cells, solder, soldering iron, flux, and all necessary connections. |

Soldering | process of joining two metallic surfaces to make an electrical contact my melting solder | Soldering, brazing and the blowpipe in the Cordilleras provinces are suspected, but the evidence of their existence must be further examined |

Soldering Iron | Tool with an internal heating element used to heat surfaces being soldered to the point where the solder becomes molten | Soldering, brazing and the blowpipe in the Cordilleras provinces are suspected, but the evidence of their existence must be further examined |

Analog | A way of representing some physical quantity,such as temperature or velocity | the idea that the fertilized egg contains a miniature analog of every adult structure |
