Do you recognize where electricity comes from? To be able to say yes to this question, you need to understand the physics of matter. During this course, you?ll learn the fundamentals involving: matter, electron theory, magnetism, electromagnetism, the laws of electrical circuits, series circuits, parallel circuits, series-parallel circuits and therefore the basic electrical formulas. This nine hour course introduces the fundamental electricity and electrical circuit ideas related to electricity. Topics include calculation of current, voltage, resistance and power in series, parallel and combination circuits with direct current (DC) power sources.
