Correlate electricity principles to circuitry and microprocessors.

Definition

Correlation should include

  • atomic structure
  • conductors and insulators
  • sources of electricity
  • positive and negative poles (i.e., directional reference)
  • voltage, current, and resistance
  • closed circuitry
  • power and Watt's law.

Process/Skill Questions

  • How does atomic structure compare to circuitry and microprocessors?
  • How does directional reference compare to circuitry and microprocessors?
  • Which electrical principles enable the functions of microcomputer processing?
