electricity I

In Electricity I, students will be taught "The Basics" of electricity. Starting with the origins of electricity and the War of Currents, we'll then move onto the types of electrical systems in use today and an introduction on safety. Students will learn about atomic structure and basic values, such as voltage, current, resistance, and power, including Ohms law and Kirchhoff's law. We also will determine electrical values for combination circuits in direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) containing resistance, inductance, and capacitance. Finally summarizing the principles of magnetism, calculate voltage drop based on conductor length, type of material, and size, as well as utilize electrical measuring instruments. Students will practice theory in hands-on workshops building and testing basic circuits.
