Alternating current|A current that changes direction at regular intervals.
Direct current|A current that flows in the same direction.
Transformer|A device that increases or decreases the voltage or alternating current.
Magnet|A material or object that produces a magnetic field.
Right hand rule|A useful way to visualize the direction of a magnetic force.
Electromagnet|A temporary magnet whose magnetic field is produced by an electric current.
