ohms law the statement that the current in a circuit is directly proportional to the voltage impressed across the circuit and is inversely proportional to the resistance of the circuit
direct current electric current whose flow of charge is in one direction
alternating current electric current that repeatedly reverses direction, twice each cycle, 60 cycles per second.
diode an electronic device that restricts current to flow in a single direction in an electric circuit
