Electricity

Current, Voltage, Resistance, and Power

What is a current?

A current is the continuous flow of electrons.

What are examples of currents?

When you're charging a phone or computer, the current is sending electricity and charging it.

What is a Voltage?

Voltage is the potential difference in the electrical charge between two different areas is in a circuit.

What are example of voltage?

If you have no voltage, you have no energy.

What is Resistance?

Resistance is the difficulty that an electric current faces to pass through an object.

What are example of resistance?

If you have a very high resistance you will be towards the insulators and if you have a very low resistance then you will be towards the conductors

What is Power?

Power is the rate of doing work.

What are examples of power?

Power is how much of something is done in time.

Compare and Contrast between the four:

A current and the voltage help each other low so the power is higher, and the higher resistance you have, the things will get done faster.
