why are there so many types of elctricty?
Nothing to see here.
oh dan's had 1000 volts in him. not even sure what a volt is
Pretty shocking really
but the amperes that impair
Tend to think of it as the current being a speeding train, and ohms the amount of shit you can throw on the track to stop it.
that as much as everyone takes the rip, nobody actually knows the asnwer
but then again, so does google. and jeeves. and altavista. maybe even bing... nah not bing.
if you think about water travel in a pipe.. volts is like the water pressure. Its a unit of electical potential.
watts is a unit of measurement equal to 1 joule per second.
joule is a measurement of force equal to moving 1 newton 1 metre
ohm is a measurement of resistance.
amps is the unit of current.
what you have named aren't different types of electricity, just different measurements/controls.
i was ok for the first line, the water pressue, like, POTENTIAL. but then he moved away from this water pipe thing and i sort of lost it
shouldn't it just flow?
a bit like how 1CM = 10MM.
And it doesnt flow if there is too much resistance
the pay off! :D
he's just trollin'.
