### Current, I, Amps, A.

6

## Measurement of energy converted?

### Power, P, Watts, W.

7

## Ohms law?

### The current that flows in a circuit is directly proportional to the voltage of a circuit, and indirectly proportional to the opposition in the circuit.

8

## Ohms law mathematically?

### I= E/R or E= I x R

9

## Power current and voltage relationship stated?

### The power dissipated in a circuit is directly proportional to the voltage of the circuit and the current in the circuit

10

## Power current and voltage relationship formula?

### p= i x e

11

## What is a series circuit?

###
A circuit where there is only only

Path for the electrons to flow from the source, to the load, and back to the source.

12

## What is Kirchhoff's voltage law? (Series)

### The algebraic sum of the applied voltage and the voltage drop around any closed circuit is equal to zero

13

## Kirchhoff's voltage law simply given?

### The voltage drop around any complete circuit is always equal to the applied voltage.

14

## Kirchhoff's voltage law mathematically?

### E= I x R

15

## What is the formula for current, given by Kirchhoff's current law?

### I1 = i2= i3.....

16

## Kirchhoff's current law stated?

### The algebraic sum of the current at any split and junction is equal to zero

17

## Resistance in a series circuit?

### The total resistance in a series circuit is equal to the sum of the individual resistances

18

## What is a parallel circuit?

### A circuit where each component is directed across the source.

19

## Definition of a parallel circuit?

### A circuit where each component is directed across the source

20

## Kirchhoff's voltage law for parallels?

### The algebraic sum of the applied voltage and the voltage drop around any closed circuit is equal to zero.

21

## Kirchhoff's voltage law for parallels simply put?

### The voltage drop around any complete circuit is always equal to the applied voltage
