# Electricity

## Current

Current is the continuous flow of energy.

## Resistance

Resistance is the difficulty an electric current experiences as it tries to pass through a semi-conductor. To the right is a picture of eight resistors, which are units placed on motherboards of computers to limit the amount of energy flowing through.

## Circuit

A circuit is usually a battery with wiring made of a conductor which connects it to an object that requires electricity and separate wiring that leads back to the other end of the battery, as seen below.

## Comparing and Contrasting statements

Current and Circuit might get confused. (I got them confused) What sets them apart is that Current is what flows through the Circuit.

Resistance is a part of both the Current and Circuit affecting both of them by being a part of the circuit, and limiting how much energy is in the current after the resistor.

## Examples of the Vocab Terms

Current is just referred to as 'Power' in my household

Resistance can be a resistor,

and power strips can be a circuit
