a device used to measure current
an electrical property of particles that causes them to attract and repel each other
a device used to measure voltage, or electrical potential energy difference
an object that has equal amounts of protons and electrons
electricity that flows in one direction steadily
a device that opens or closes a circuit
an instrument for measuring the properties of an electrical circuit
unit used to measure electric current
charging by contact
a flow of electric charge that regularly reverses its direction (60 times per second)
an incomplete electrical circuit through which no current flows
a complete path through which electric current flows
material through which electrons do not flow
material through which electrons flow freely
a complete pathway for electrons to flow
flows in the opposite direction as moving electrons
positively charged particle within the nucleus of the atom
neutral particle within the nucleus of the atom
negatively charged particle within the atom, but not in the nucleus
force that acts between unlike charges
force that acts between like charges
a method of charging objects by rubbing two objects together
method of charging; objects touch, allowing electrons to flow between them
method of charging; electric charges are rearranged, no contact is necessary
the build up of electric charge
the release of electric charge
an instrument that detects electric charge
the measurement of the difference in charges between the terminals of a battery; the power in a battery
a circuit that has multiple pathways through which electrons can flow
a circuit that has only one pathway through which electrons can flow
a device that produces electricity by converting chemical energy to electrical energy
opposition to the flow of electrons; slows down the electrons in a circuit
