Hint: Circle sliced into thirds
V=Watts/Amps
3. Also Known as Amps, this is the measure of the rate of electron flow through material and is measured in amperes or amps
Current aka Amps (I)
4. This refers to the current, measured in amps, that a conductor can carry continuously under the conditions of use without exceeding its temperature rating?
Ampacity
5. Electrical Resistance is measured in these units and called this...
OHMS (R)
6. Power is also known and measured in this form of unit?
Watts!
7. Watts(V)(VA)(W)=?
Watts(V)(VA)(W)=E*I
