Summary
• Charge is a fundamental property of matter.
• Two types of charge: positive and negative.
• Like charges repel, unlike charges attract.
• Voltageprovides potential for charges to flow.
• Current measures number of charges flowing by in a given time interval.
• Power is the rate of energy per time required to move a charge or released by a moving charge.
• Circuits are “plumbing for charges”, physical systems for controlling charge flow.
• Electrical Engineers design circuits to store and move charge to represent information and to do work.
