Electric Field & the Movement of Charge

1. Electric Field & the Movement of Charge

After watching this video, you will be able to explain what an electric field is, draw electric field lines and vectors for charged particles, and complete calculations involving electric fields. A short quiz will follow.

Voltage Sources: Energy Conversion and Examples

2. Voltage Sources: Energy Conversion and Examples

We use them every day, but no one really gives them much thought. What are we talking about? Why, voltage sources, of course! Batteries and generators are two of the most common sources of voltage that power our daily lives. We'll look at them in detail to see how they work.

What Is Electric Potential? - Definition & Formula

3. What Is Electric Potential? - Definition & Formula

In this lesson, discover what electric potential is and how we measure it. Learn about the scientist Alessandro Volta and why his work led us to name a unit of measurement after him.

Electric Potential: Charge Collections and Volt Unit

4. Electric Potential: Charge Collections and Volt Unit

In this lesson, we'll find out that electric charges can be rather lazy until something motivates them to get work done. Find out what gives electric charges the potential to do work and how we measure that potential with something called voltage.

Capacitance: Units & Formula

5. Capacitance: Units & Formula

After watching this lesson, you will be able to explain what a capacitor is, define capacitance, and solve simple problems using capacitance equations. A short quiz will follow.

Ohm's Law: Definition & Relationship Between Voltage, Current & Resistance

6. Ohm's Law: Definition & Relationship Between Voltage, Current & Resistance

Did you know that electrical current is affected by the voltage and resistance in a circuit? In this lesson, we'll use Ohm's law, which tells us how current, voltage, and resistance are related, as we work through several electric circuit examples.
