A closed path that electrons powered by a power source can flow through.
- A source of energy the produces energy through chemical reactions involving two different types of metals or metal compounds separated by a conducting solution. E.G a energizer battery
- A battery is a connection of two or more cells, used to power devices.
- e.g. a car battery
An electrode is one of the two terminals in a cell or battery.
A solution or paste the conducts charge.
- A cell that contains an electrolyte made of a paste.
- A wet cell is a cell that contains a electrolyte made of liquid.
- A cell that can be used only once.
- e.g. A disposable Duracell battery
- A cell that can be used more than once
- e.g Cell phone battery.
- A cell that generates electricity through chemical reactions of fuel that is stored outside of the cell.
- e.g. Hydrogen fuel cell
A solar cell is a cell that converts energy from sunlight into electricity.
- A position on a ell that must be connected to other components to form a circuit.
- e.g. a splice.
- A device that controls if a electric current can flow through the circuit or not.
- e.g. a light switch.
A circuit that has a gap or break in it.
Electric current is the measure of the number of particles that pass by a point in a circuit in a second.
a coulomb is the quantity of charge that is equal to the charge of 6.25 x 10 to the power of 18
