# Difference between Neutral and Earth

This article focus on explaining the similarities and dissimilarities between neutral and earth (ground). Understanding the difference between the neutral and earth may be difficult in the beginning. A Lot…

# Difference between over-current and overload

Over-current Any situation in which the current flow through a device or conductor exceeds the desired value is known as over current. Both overload and short circuit can cause excessive…

# Transformer Action

Transformer action is a phenomenon by which EMF(Electro-motive force) is induced in from one coil to the other coil by electro magnetic induction. It is the basic principle of electric transformers.

# Difference between Higher potential and lower potential Before getting into the topic, we have to keep two points in mind.1. Conventional Current flow. (The way Current is said to flow historically)
2. ‎Actual current flow. (The way Current actually flows).

# Voltage division rule | Potential divider circuit

### Voltage division rule

Voltage division rule is one of the basic rules of circuit analysis. It is applicable to all series circuits and combination circuits. Series circuit always acts as a Voltage divider. In a series circuit, the same current flows through each resistance. Hence the voltage drops across each resistor are proportional to their ohmic value.

# Series and Parallel circuits

Current flow in a circuit is determined by the impedance offered by the circuit components, which is in turn determined by the way circuit components are connected. Series connection and parallel connection are the two simplest ways of connecting a circuit.

# Ohm’s Law – Relationship between current and voltage

Ohm’s law is one of the basic principles of electricity. It relates the basic parameters of electricity, Current and voltage, to each other. Georg Ohm, after whom the law was named, conduct a few experiments on circuits containing different lengths of wires and found that the voltage applied and current are directly proportional. He derived a complex equation and published it along with his results in the book Die galvanische Kette, mathematisch bearbeitet in 1827.

# What is an Electric Circuit? Two or more circuit components such as power source, resistors, inductors and capacitors when interconnected, it forms an electric circuit. (more…)

# Difference between volts and watts Volts and watts are two of the most common and key terms in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. Most of the times these terms confuse the newbie or those who have just started learning Electrical sciences. (more…)

# The direction Electric Current flow

Electric Current Every particle in the nature other than the insulators* has a large number of free electrons in them. These electrons move randomly in all directions within the material…
