Electronic Units

Current Flow (I)

- the rate of the flow of electrons (from positive to negative) in a circuit

Potential (V)

- the energy driving the flow of electrons or, the energy per unit charge created by separating positive and negative charges.

Resistance (R)

- the resistance of a medium to the flow of electrons.

Conductance (g)

- the ease of electron flow through a medium (simply the inverse of resistance).

Capacitance (C)

- the amount of charge a capacitor can store. Back to Units Reference
