Voltage and Current
Voltage is electric potential. It is the force moving things in the world of circuits, like an electrical force pushing or pulling electrons.
Current measures the flow of electrons and is measured in Amperes.
Power and Energy
Power describes the amount of work done, or in other words the amount of energy transferred.
Electrically connected components that form a complete path for electrons to flow through.
Every circuit needs a power source to push the electrons!
You need to join different circuit components together for the electrons to flow.
Wires carry signal from one location to another. They come in various sizes.
Batteries are your portable power source!
