AC/DC Theory: Voltage

AC/DC Theory: Voltage is part two of the AC/DC Theory 14-part training series.

Electronic circuits need current to flow so they can operate as designed. The current flow is caused by emf or electromotive-force. This course teaches students how to measure emf or voltage.

Course objectives include:

  • Explain how connecting batteries in series or in parallel will affect voltage and current capability
  • Differentiate between voltage drop and rise
  • Explain ground, negative, and positive voltage
  • Measure voltage with a voltmeter.
