Coulomb
The unit for measuring charge is the Coulomb (C)
Current
flow of electrons
Ampere
The unit for electric current is the Ampere (Amps)(A)
Open Circuit
Open Circuit: There is a "break" in the wire.
closed circuit
Closed Circuit: Everything is connected, wires/ battery/ light bulb/ etc.
Electrical Potential
Batteries provide electric potential, also called voltage
Voltage
Voltage is measured using Volts
Resistors
These are wired into a circuit in order to create things such as light (light bulb) and heat (heat coil)
Ohms
Resistance is measured using Ohms
Series Circuit
Only 1 path for electronsat least 2 resister
Parallel Circuit
Places resistors side by side in a circuit
Ohm's Law
This is an equation that shows the relationship between electric potential (voltage), current, and resistance
