1.1 flash cards

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

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
