  • Current
    • Current is the amount of charge that flows past a point per second.
    • current = charge over time.
    • Measured in Amps (A)
    • Charge is measured in coulombs (C)
    • Series Circuits
      • All components in one loop.
      • the current is the same throughout
        • because it only has one route for it to take.
          • If there is a break in the circuit the current will still flow.
    • Parallel Circuits
      • The components are connected in more than one loop
