Electrical Forces, Fields, and Circuits

Lecture no. 12 from the course: 12 Essential Scientific Concepts

Electrical Forces, Fields, and Circuits

Taught by Professor Indre Viskontas | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

To truly understand magnetism, you have to understand its cousin: electricity. First, get a primer on the basics of electricity. Then, explore the concept of electric potential (a combination of an object’s electric charge and its position to other charged objects) and find out how electric circuits actually work in the human body and beyond.
