Lesson Summary 

Define anode and cathode.

Vocabulary 

Anode - The terminal of a polarized electronic device through which charge flows into.  This is usually the negative terminal in most devices.  

Cathode - The terminal of a polarized electronic device through which charge flows out of.  This is usually the positive terminal in most devices. 

 

 

 

Resistor - An electronic component that restricts the flow of electrical current and voltage. Measured in Ohms (Ω). R1 = Resistor, R2 = Variable Resistor, R3 = Potentiometer. 

 

 

Capacitor  - An electronic component that stores and discharges the flow of electrical current and voltage. Measured in Farads (f). C1 = Capacitor, C2 = Polarized Capacitor, C3 = Variable Capacitor.
