properties and units of electricity
How does electricity work?
Science behind electrons
Founding fathers of units of electricity
Amps are a unit of measuring the current of electricity. These units are directly proportionate to the amount of voltage in electricity. They were discovered by the scientist André-Marie Ampère, hence the name Amps.
Volts are units of measuring the strength in the current of electricity and how powerful it is depending on the amount and speed of electrons as well as the power of the battery. They are named after the scientist Alessandro Volta.
The Ohm is a unit of measuring the resistance of the flow of electrons based on the circumference of the wire or conductor and how much pressure is being put on the electrons. Resistance will decrease the amps and electrons will not flow as quickly. These units of measuring are named after the scientist Georg Simon Ohm.
What is the Ohm's law and Electricity
1. Electricity is a form of energy, that we use every day, which comes from charged particles such as protons or electrons.
2. Atoms are the smallest piece of a pure element that you can possibly have. Electrons are particles that reside in the outer shell of atoms which carry a negative charge.
3. Current electricity is the stronger form of electricity which is carried by electrons through a conductive material such as a wire or metal. Requires source of electricity output such as a battery.
4. Static electricity is an electric charge which is produced by natural forms of energy such as friction which cause sparks or the attraction of small particles such as dust or hair.
5. Ohm’s law teaches that the current through a wire or other conductor residing between two given points, is proportional to the amount of space between the two points.
6. In electricity the V stands for voltage. Also, in electricity R stands for Resistance, and I stands for current.
7. The voltage is equal to the current multiplied by the resistance. Also, all three are units of measurement for electricity.
8. Then the current increases when voltage is increased and the resistance stays the sameThe current goes down if resistance is increased while voltage is constant.
