## What is Ohm’s Law for Electricians

Ohm's Law is simply a math triangle electricians use to calculate Voltage, Amps, and Resistance in a SUPER EASY way. It's all based on RESISTANCE being constant.

## What is a Power Source for Electricians

In electrical circuits we have a power source and electrical loads. A power source is what provides power to the circuit, whether it's an AC or DC circuit, and an electrical load CONSUMES power from that power source.

## Breakdown of Volts, Amps, Resistance, and Power for Electricians

A brief overview of Voltage, Ampacity, Resistance, and Power for those apprentice electricians going to school.

## How Does a Basic Electrical Circuit Work

A basic electrical circuit works by connecting two wires (Hot and Neutral) across an electrical device (known as a "load").

## How Circuit Numbers Work in a Three-Phase Electrical Panel

How circuit numbers work in a three-phase and single-phase panel, and how to share a neutral with different phases safely.

## What is a Nameplate on Electrical Equipment

A name plate identifies how to satisfy the electrical demand of equipment. It often clarifies VOLTAGE, AMPS, PHASE, Model and Serial Number, and Hertz (Frequency) of the electrical equipment.

## Why Do Electricians Use Higher Voltages than 120V

Electricians use higher voltages to reduce current, which in turn allows for smaller wires. This saves money, and is much easier to install and maintain!
