Ampere's Law                                Alternating current (AC)

- The ampere is the standard unit of measure of electic current. It is sometimes written as Amp.

- An electric current that reverses direction on a periodic basis. it is widely used to transport power on power lines.

Alternating Current                       Battery                          energy storing

-Electric current that reverses direction on periodic basis, is widely used to transport power on power lines
-A basic electrical component that stores electric charge its capacitors are made from two electrical conductors separated by an insulator.

- An electronic component only allows current to flow in one direction.

direct current

-An electric circuit is a collection of electronic components connected by a conductive wire that allows for electric current to flow.

-Electric current is the flow of electric through a material. The standard unit for electric current is the Ampere.

Definition & Relationship                                                  Resistor

- Ohm's law is a law of physics that describe the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance using the equation V=IR

-A resister is basic electronic component that prevents the flow of electric current.

Resister2                                         Static Electricity2

-The static electricity is build up of an electric charge on the surface of an object. The charge remains in one area rather than flowing to another area.

Electricity transformers                           Turbine

-A turbine is a machine that transforms rotational energy from a fluid that is picked up by a rotor system into energy.

- transister is a device used in an electric circuit to requlate current flow to act as a gate, switch, or amplifier for electronic signals.
