Conductor

a material that electric current can easily move through, such as metals

Convection

motion in a gas (as air) or a liquid in which the warmer portions rise and the colder portions sink

Current

the amount of electric charge flowing past a specified point per unit of time. The unit for current is ampere (A).


Electricity

the flow of electrical power or charge. It is a secondary energy source which means that we get it from the conversion of other sources of energy.


Electron

a negatively charged particle located on the outside of the nucleus of an atom

Energy (E=Pt)

the capacity to do work

Generator

a device that produces electricity

Heat

energy transferred from one place to another by a temperature difference

Insulator

a material that electric current cannot move easily through such as air, plastic, glass, and rubber.

Ohm’s Law

electric current is directly proportional to voltage and inversely proportional to resistance. I=V/R
