Electronic Terms Study Guide

Activity 1: WORD MATCH

Match each word on the left with its description on the right.

1. ampere a. unit of power
2. velocity b. unit of current flow
3. volt c. unit of volume
4. decibel d. unit of speed
5. watt e. unit of force

Activity 2: TRUE OR FALSE?

Read each statement and mark it T if it's true or F if it's false. If it is false, change it so that it becomes true.

  1. A quiescent current is amplifying a signal but isn't supplied with any power.
  2. The word laser is actually an acronym.
  3. An insulator is material that helps to protect against elements such as heat or electricity.
  4. Attenuation is typically measured in wavelengths.
  5. A decibel is an electronic measurement tool for viewing a waveform.
  6.
