AS Physics Key Definition: Energy, Power & Resistance
Definition for Charge: Charge is the quantity of electric charge which passes a point in
the circuit when a current of 1A flows for 1 second.
Definition for Current: Current is the rate of flow of charge in a circuit.
Definition for Potential Difference (Voltage): The potential difference between two
points is the amount of electrical energy transferred into other forms when one coulomb
of charge is passed from
one point to the other.

Here's a taster:

Definition for Ohm: One ohm is equivalent to the electrical resistance of a conductor
when 1A of current flows with a potential difference of 1 volt.
Definition for the Volt: One volt is equivalent to energy transfer per for one joule per
coulomb.…read more
