(0.5 CEUs; 25 minutes) Even though we depend on electricity for so many essential functions of our civilization, our understanding of electricity tends to be incomplete. This course is a good place to improve your understanding of electricity and how it relates to power and energy. The focus of this course is on units of measurement and how they relate to the way we use electricity and combustion in our modern world. We include a link to Electricity Explained from the US Energy Information Administration, a single site that will educate you on most of what you want to know about electricity in plain language. Don’t forget your reading assignments that you will find under the Materials tab.
