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