    Resistance Of A Wire

    892 words, 4 pages

    Background scientific knowledge Electricity Electricity is the movement of charge (electrons) around a circuit. The charge flows throw conductors which allow the electrons to pass through. An object which does not allow electrons to pass through is an insulator. Conductors intended to have resistance are called resistors (symbol ) Voltage- given the symbol V, measured in volts using a voltmeter Current- given the symbol I, measured in Amperes using an ammeter Metallic structure diagram Resistance Resistance is the ability to prevent or resist the flow of electric
