Terminology and Units of Measurement


Introduction to the various terminologies and the units of measurement used in the study of electricity

Upon the completion of this module, you will understand how to:

1. Describe how the basic "building blocks"of matter—elements, compounds, molecules, atoms—are related to each other
2. Explain how atomic structure is related to the study of electricity
3. Define the coulomb, volt, ampere, and ohm
4. Identify how to use these units of measurement properly
5. State Ohm's Law
6. Use the equations commonly derived from Ohm's Law to calculate voltage, current, resistance, and power in electric circuits
