Direct Current (DC) & Alternating Current (AC) When current is constant with time, we say that we have direct current, abbreviated as DC. On the other hand, a current that varies with time, reversing direction periodically, is called alternating current, abbreviated as AC ~ 4
Voltage Voltage difference is a Source of current flow Units of Voltage: Volts (V) Alessandro Giuseppe Antonio Anastasio Volta 1745-1827 12 V V V + - - = 5

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
