Electricity

Electricity can be defined as the energy from the flow of electrons.Lightning is electricity,the light of a bulb is produced by electricity.

Current

Current is the continuous flow of electrons.



Current can only flow if there the electrons can flow in a closed loop.This closed loop that current flows through is called a Circuit.

Circuit

This closed loop that current flows through is called a Circuit.Like a light switch,you flick the light switch,the battery powers up,then the light turns on.

Resistance

Resistance is the difficulty an electric current faces to pass through an object.Resistance is like a circuit.

Conductor

Conductors are materials that freely allow the flow of electrons with very little resistance.Conductor is like a light switch.

Semiconductors

Semiconductors are materials that do not allow electors to flow freely but do not directly stop them either.

Insulator

Insulators are materials that greatly impede or stop the flow of electrons with very high resistance.A telephone pole is an example of an insulator.

Voltage

Voltage is the potential difference in electrical charge between two different areas in a circuit.An electricity box could be an example of Voltage.
