Potential Difference and Resistance
Potential Difference (also known as Voltage)
Potential difference, also commonly referred to as voltage, is an important concept to understand. In these videos I'm using the rope loop model to explain this.
The current through a component depends on both the resistance of the component and the potential difference across.
Potential Difference and Resistance: Example A
A quick example where you calculate the resistance of a common household appliance.
Potential Difference and Resistance: Example B
Here you work out the potential difference of the cell in a basic electrical circuit.
