# Current, Voltage & Resistance

## 13 terms

### electric circuit

An __________ ________ is formed when a conductive path is created to allow free electrons to continuously move.

### current

This continuous movement of free electrons through the conductors of a circuit is called _______.

### voltage

The force motivating electrons to "flow" in a circuit is called _______________.

### potential

Voltage is a specific measure of _______________ energy that is always relative between two points.

### circuit potential energy circuit

When we speak of a certain amount of voltage being present in a ______, we are referring to the measurement of how much _______ ______exists to move electrons from one particular point in that ________ to another particular point.

### voltage

Without reference to two particular points, the term "_______________" has no meaning.

### voltage resistance relative

Just like _______________, _______________ is a quantity which is _______________ between two points

### voltage potential

_____________ is a specific measure of ______________ energy that is always relative between two points.

### electric circuit conductive

An ___________ _________ is formed when a _______________ path is created to allow free electrons to continuously move.

### friction

Free electrons tend to move through conductors with some degree of ______________, or opposition to motion.

### resistance

This opposition to motion is more properly called _______________.

### current voltage motivate resistance circuit oppose

The amount of _______________ in a circuit depends on the amount of _______________ available to _______________ the electrons, and also the amount of _______________ in the _______________ to _______________ electron flow.

### between across

For this reason, the quantities of voltage and resistance are often stated as being _______________ or _______________ two points in a circuit.
