Electricity

by Nicholas Oweis

Currents

  • Currents are continuous flows of electrons.


  • In everyday life, currents are everywhere, when you see a street light, there is a current of flowing electricity going up the pole into the light bulb.

Resistance

  • Electricity can't pass through anything easily. Electricity sometimes has a difficult time flowing, what causes this is resistance.


  • In everyday life, you see resistance in the rubber around the cord on your phone charger.

Circuits

  • An electrical circuit is a path in which electrons from a voltage or current source flow. An electric current flow in a closed path called an electric circuit. The point where those electrons enter an electrical circuit is called the "source" of electrons.
  • in everyday life, you can see circuits when you are in a house with a power source going into a room with a light bulb.
