- Ohms. This is a measurement for the amount of resistance in a circuit.
- Circuit. An electrical circuit is one loop of electrical flow.
- Service Box.
- Circuit Breaker.
- Ground Fault Interrupt.
- Conduit.
- Gauge.

## What are the basic electricity terms?

CURRENT – Movement of electricity along a conductor. Current is measured in amperes. CURRENT FLOW – The flow or movement of electrons from atom to atom in a conductor. CYCLE – The change in an alternating electrical sine wave from zero to a positive peak to zero to a negative peak and back to zero.

**What does a mean in electrical terms?**

Ampere

Ampere (A) — A unit of measure for the intensity of an electric current flowing in a circuit. One ampere is equal to a current flow of one coulomb per second. Apparent Power — Measured in volt-ampers (VA). Apparent power is the product of the rms voltage and the rms current.

### What is the equivalent of electrical power?

For any circuit element, the power is equal to the voltage difference across the element multiplied by the current. By Ohm’s Law, V = IR, and so there are additional forms of the electric power formula for resistors. Power is measured in units of Watts (W), where a Watt is equal to a Joule per second (1 W = 1 J/s).

### What is IB in electrical terms?

current to operate protective device. Ib. design current. Id. fault current.

**What are the four main electrical units of measurement?**

Volts, amps, ohms, and watts are the four basic units of electricity.

## What does FCU mean in electrical terms?

A fused connection unit (or FCU) is an electrical outlet with an integrated fuse used for connecting permanently installed appliances such as fridges, dishwashers, and waste disposal units to a circuit.

## What does B stand for in electrical terms?

Circuit Breaker

**What is the electrical equivalent of heat?**

The electrical equivalent of heat is the number of Joules of electrical energy that are equivalent to one calorie of thermal energy.

### What does Rp stand for in electrical?
