### Electric Current

the continuous flow of electric charges through a material.

### Ohm's Law

the law that states that resistance is equal to voltage divided by current

### Resistance

the measurement of how difficult it tis for charges to flow through a material

### Series Circuit

an electric circuit with a single path

### Parallel Circuit

an electric circuit with multiple paths

### Conductor

a material that conducts heat well (charges can easily flow)

### Insulator

a material that does not conduct heat well (charges cannot easily flow)

### Amp

measure of current

### Direct Current

current consisting of charges that flow in only one direction in a circuit

### Alternating Current

current consisting of charges that move back and forth in a circuit
