Electricity is a fundamental component of everyday lives. But have you ever wondered, what is electricity and where does it come from!
The answer to this question begins with an understanding of the structure of matter. All matter is made up of atoms, which are made of tiny particles called protons, neutrons and electrons. The proton has a positive charge, the neutron no charge and the electron a negative charge. Electricity comes from the movement of electrons among the atoms of the matter.
This course provides you with insight of the basic concepts and fundamentals behind electricity.
This 4-hr course material is based entirely on Naval Education and Training Materials (NAVEDTRA 14173), Electricity and Electronic Training Series; Module-1 “Introduction to matter, energy and direct current” and covers Chapter 1.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
