electric charge

Electric charge

A basic property of the tiny particles that make up matter

static electricity

Static Electricity

The buildup of electric charges in one place

electric field

Electric Field

The area around electric charges, where electric forces can act

electric current

Electric current

A flow of electric charges

electric circuit
Electric Circuit

A continuous pathway that can carry an electric current.

series circuit

Series circuit

An electric circuit with only one path for current

parallel circuit

Parallel circuit

An electric circuit with two or more paths for current



How much a material opposes, or resists, the flow of electric current


An electrical device used in an electrical circuit for protection or current control.

short circuit

Short circuit

A flaw in a circuit that allows a large current to flow through where it isn’t wanted



Material through which heat and electricity flow easily



To pull toward each other



A material that slows the flow of heat and electricity



To push away from each other

power source
Power Source

A device that supplies electric power to an electrical load.


Energy created by moving charged particles.
