Electricity Basics

Q1: what is electricity?
Electricity is a type of energy that can build up in one place or flow from one place to another. When electricity gathers in one place it is known as static electricity (the word static means something that does not move); electricity that moves from one place to another is called current electricity.

Q2: what are the types of electricity?
Types of electricity are: Static electricity and dynamic/current electricity

Q3: What is the static electricity?
Static electricity is an Electric charge at rest, generally produced by friction or electrostatic induction

Q4: What is the dynamic/current electricity?
Dynamic electricity is a flow of Electric charge at movement.

Q5: What is the electric current?
Electric current is a movement or flow of electrically charged particles, typically measured in amperes

Q6: What is direct current?
Direct current is the current that maintains constant polarity or direction, respectively, over time.

DC & AC Currents

Q7: What is alternating current?
Alternating current is the current that changes polarity or direction,respectively, over time.

Q8: What is electric potential?
Electric potential is the capacity of an electric field to do work on an electrical charge, typically measured in volts.

Q9: What is electric field?
Electric field is an influence produced by an electric charge on other charges in its vicinity.

Q10: What is electrical charge?
Electrical charge is a property of some subatomic particles which determines their electromagnetic interactions. Electrically charged matter is influenced by, and produces, electromagnetic fields

Q11: what is electromagnetism?
Electromagnetism is a fundamental interaction between the magnetic field and the presence and motion of an electric charge.

Q12: What is an electrical circuit?
An electric circuit is an interconnection of electric components such that electric charge is made to flow along a closed path (a circuit), usually to perform some useful task
