Slide 2 EE40 Fall 08 Chang-Hasnain Electric Current • Time rate of the flow of positive electric charge through a conductor or circuit element • Unit: Ampere (=coul/sec) • Use water flow as a model • Charge is conserved within a given circuit element • Current flow is the same for all cross sections of a circuit element • DC: direct current • AC: alternate current

Slide 3 EE40 Fall 08 Chang-Hasnain Voltage • Energy transferred per unit charge that flows through an element • Think of it like potential energy • Unit V (=Joul/Coul) • Measured across ends of a circuit element • Energy is conserved through a loop • Voltage is assigned polarity that indicates the direction of energy flow • Charge move from + to -; whereby charge gains energy
