# WHAT A SHOCK

## current

a body of water or air moving in a definite direction, especially through a surrounding body of water or air in which there is less movement.

## voltage

an electromotive force or potential difference expressed in volts.

## resistance

the refusal to accept or comply with something; the attempt to prevent something by action or argument.

## powers

In physics, power is the rate of doing work. It is equivalent to an amount of energy consumed per unit time. In the SI system, the unit ofpower is the joule per second (J/s), known as the watt in honour of James Watt, the eighteenth-century developer of the steam engine.

## resistance,current,voltage,and powers

is the potential difference in electrical charge between two different areas in a circuit voltage is the force that pushes the current along through the circuit power is the amount of energy over time. this is still measured in watts current can only flow if there the electrons can flow in a closed loop (a circle or closed wire)

this closed loop that current flows through is called a circuitthis is the reason why batteries need both sides connected for electricity to flow
