1

## What do volts measure?

### The difference of potential between two points.

2

## What do amperes (amps) measure?

### The number of electrons that move past a specific point in one second.

3

## What do ohms measure?

### Resistance, including anything that could limit the flow of electrons.

4

## What is a current?

###
Something that occurs when electrons move from one place to another.

5

## What is the purpose of a conductor?

### It allows electrons to move freely.

6

## What does an insulator do?

### Discourage electric currents.

7

## What does a watt measure?

### Power, the rate at which electrical energy is consumed or formed into another type of energy.

8

## What is a watt-hour?

### The amount of energy used in one hour at a rate of one watt.

9

## What is a kilowatt-hour?

### Most electricity is measured in this. It's how much energy you would use of you ran a 1000 watt (1kilowatt) device for an hour

10

## How do you find watt-hours?

### Multiply wattage by time (hours)

## What is a circuit?

### The path of an electrical current

12

## What supplies the voltage in a circuit?

### The battery
