Example text

The potential or electromotive force is referred to as voltage. Voltage is the force that moves electrons in a circuit. The symbol E is used to represent voltage. A volt (V) is the unit for measuring voltage. Resistance is the opposition to current flow. Resistance is represented by the symbol R. All materials offer some resistance to current flow. The resistance of a material is dependent on the material’s size, shape, and temperature. Conductors are materials with low resistance. Insulators are materials with high resistance.
