Electricity:

What is Electricity?

Electricity a form of energy resulting from the existence of charged particles (such as electrons or protons), either statically as an accumulation of charge or dynamically as a current.

What are atoms and electrons?

Atoms: The atom is the basic building block for all matter in the universe. Atoms are extremely small and are made up of a few even smaller particles. The basic particles that make up an atom are electrons, protons, and neutrons. Atoms fit together with other atoms to make up matter It takes a lot of atoms to make up anything. There are so many atoms in a single human body we won't even try to write the number here. Lets just say that the number is trillions and trillions (and then more).


Electrons: Electrons are negatively charged particle that spins around the outside of the nucleus of an Atom. Electrons spin so fast around the nucleus, scientists can never be 100% sure where they are located, but scientists can make estimates of where electrons should be. If there are the same number of electrons and protons in an atom, then the atom is said to have a neutral charge. Electrons are attracted to the nucleus by the positive charge of the protons. Electrons are much smaller than neutrons and protons. About 1800 times smaller.

What is electric current?

An electric current is a flow of electric charge. In electric circuits this charge is often carried by moving electrons in a wire.

What is static electricity?

Static electricity is the build up of an electrical charge on the surface of an object. It's called "static" because the charges remains in one area for a while rather than moving or "flowing" to another area.

Ohms Law:

What is Ohms Law?

Ohms Law deals with the relationship between voltage and current in an ideal conductor.

What is the Unit of Measurement?

Unit of Measurement: V= Voltage, I= Current=Amps, R= Resistance

Whats the Relationship between the 3?

When the Voltage increases the resistor stays the same and Amps increases. When the Amps increase the voltage increases and resistor stays the same.

Circuit:

Define what the 5 parts make up a single series circuit?

The Five parts you need to make up a single series circuit are A Resistor, Battery, power source, Wire and a LED (Light emitting diode) Light Bulb.

Why do we need resistors?

We Need Resistors in the Circuit because the Circuit can over heat and shorten out.

What’s the difference between a conductor and an insulator?

In a conductor electric currents can flow freely and in a insulator it cannot. also conductor easily transfers energy in the form of electricity, while an insulator does not easily transfer energy.

What’s the difference between Conventional Current Flow and Actual Current Flow?

A normal current flow from the negative terminal to the positive. A conventional current flows from positive terminal to negative.
