                           Ampere                                   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.

- 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 electricity                                        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.


                  
               
 Transformer                      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.
 

                    
              Wind Turbine                                Transistor                         Transistor2  

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


Volt - The standard unit of measure for electric potential (voltage).

Watt - The standard unit of measure used for electric power.
