Current - I
The rate of flow of charge around a circuit (charge per second) measured in amps
1 of 5
Charge - Q
Charge is a fundamental property of sub-atomic particles measured in Coulombs
2 of 5
Voltage/Potential Difference - V
THE ENERGY TRANSFERRED TO THE COMPONENT BY EACH COULOMB OF CHARGE THAT PASSES THROUGH IT The 'push' provided by the battery, so the higher the voltage the faster the electrons travel, generating more power
3 of 5
Resistance - R
Opposes and slows down current, measured in Ohms
4 of 5
Time Period - T
The time it takes for the current to change from positive to negative (in seconds)
