amps are the flow of electrons in this instance- water, voltage is the electricty source. pressure is when the amount of pressure determines the amount of water. electrons are the things that make the electricity possible. a batterie is similar to a hot dog in the way that a battery has a pole with a can around it and a hot dog has a bun around it

amps- a unit of an electrical currents

voltage- the pressure on electrons

pressure- the exertion of force upon a surface by an object

electrons- has a negative charge

a hot dog and battery are alike because they both have a surrounding aka the bread and an inside the rod aka the meat

amps are the amount of electrons passing through a circut and voltage is the pressure of the electrons passing through a circut.
A hotdog is like a battery because they both have a centre(rod and meat), they both have an outer layer(can and bun) and they both have a goo like substance in between the centre and outer layer(electrolytes and mustard and sauce).

voltage is when energy is drawn from a source that produces a flow of electricity in a circuit.
amps are the basic unit of electric current.
a flow of
electrons is similar to aflow of water because electrons flow around a circut and that is like water flowing through a pipe.

Voltage in a battery is like the pressure of water flowing around a tube.
Amps are the flow of electrons passing a particular point. So it is like the amount of the water passing through a tube per second.

A battery is similar to a hotdog because the roll of the hot dog is like the can of the battery,the sausage is like the metal rode and the mustard is like the electrolytes.

1, voltage is the pressure in somthing.
2, amps is eg a water substace that comes out eg water fountain.
3,pressure is a build up of voltage.
4,electrons is the amount of amps that come come out of somthing.

well batteries are the same by the rod in the middle of the battery it looks like the middle of a hot dog, the electrolytes is the mustard and the cantainer is the roll.

Amps: is the measurements in a current the more amps the more electrons

voltage: voltage is a measure of the amount of energy there is in a circuit

pressure: is when the flow of water comes out of the sink tap the less pressure less water more pressure more water

electrons: move around to make the circuit work electrons are placed from the outside of the atom.

amps are the amount of electrons flowing through a circuit and voltage is how fast the electrons. volts is like the pressure of water and amps is like the amount of water flowing.

VOLTAGE: A measure of the difference in electric potential between two points in space, a material, or an electric circuit, expressed in volts.

AMPS: A unit of electric current. One ampere corresponds to a certain number of electrons passing a fixed point each second.

They are simular to a flow of water because the person whos pumping the water to flow, if it stops, then it doesnt flow.

A battery is simulat to a hot dog becuase its comes either long or short, big or thin and its a cylender shaped.

the amps are the water and the voltage is like the tap it lets out the amount of water the voltage is pressure of the water tap and the amps are the electrons which flow
a battery is like a hot dog a hot dog has a piece of meat in it and that battery has a blake stripy thing in it like the hotdog a hotdog has sauce and a batttery has chemicals like the hotdog

Voltage is like water coming out of a tap. The pressure is stored and when you turn the tap, the water comes out. Amps are stored electrons, waiting for pressure, like water stored in a tap. A battery is similar to a hot dog because they look the same, the middle of a battery ( the cell ) is like the hot dog, the body is like the bun and the positive and negative charges are like mustard and sauce.

voltage is the pressure that causes Amps to flow. it is similar to a waters flow
because water flower at a higher speed depending on how much pressure is pushing it. a battery is similar to a hot dog because they both have an outer rim a rod in the middle and either sauce or chemicals somewhere in between.

Amps and Voltage are the measurement of electricity. Amps are the measurement of the current and volage is the the measurement of the pressure.
This is similar to the flow of water the voltage would be equivalent to water pressure and the amps to the flow rate of the water.

Ahot dog is similar to a battery because the look alike. And have the same qualities.

voltage- voltage is a pressure that causes amps to flow through things easily, water is also like the water circuit we watched were the guy puped the stick and the water flowed around the circuit

a hot dog is similar to a battery because they have the same parts such as an inner rod an outer rod and the sauce acts like the chemicals in the batter but you carnt eat a battery but you can eat a hot dog

voltage could be said as the water coming out of a tap.

it is similar to the water flow because the electrons is the water
it is similar to a hot dog because the hot dog is the battery or conductor and the rim and and are similar to the outside of it

voltage measurement of how strong the power is
like in high voltage power lines and low voltage power lines if you were to grab onto a low voltage power line with one hand you wouldn't get shocked or killed if you were to grab onto a high voltage power line you would possibly diehert

amp is like the amount of water (electrons) that travels out of the water fountain.

voltage is the amount of pressure the electrons that flows. it is the pressure of water as well similiarily.

The hot dog meat is the metal rod in the battery, the outside roll is the can container of the battery and the mustard and sauce is the chemical paste which contains the chemical reaction

voltage is the pressure/force witch causes amps to flow.
amps are the amount of electrons flowing through a circuit.
batteries are like hotdogs because in a diagram they both have a strip down the middle. and both have chemicals.

Amps is the flow of energy and volts are how much pressure is given to the electrons. Pressure is how much energy is the cell is to give to the electrons and electrons are what makes the electricity.

A hotdog is like a battery because the bun is like the case and the hotdog is like the cell

???????? where was my first post???????
Electricity to Water.

The amps in electricity is like the amount of water that comes out of a water fountain. So the amps of electricity is the amount of electrons out of a battery.

The voltage of electrcity is like the amount of pressure or push (how far you turn the knob) of water out of a gfountain.

Pressure is the equivalent to the voltage of electrons. It means the amount of push.

The electrons that are released from a battery is like the water coming out of a fountain.

A hot dog is like a battery because the hot dog meat is the metal rod, the roll is the can containing the metal rod and electrolyte or chemical paste, which is like the mustard and sauce of the hot dog. I FEEL HUNGRY NOW, i might go eat a battery.

Amps represent the amount of flow of electrons in a circuit. Voltage is the amount of pressure or energy that drives electricity in a circuit. It is similar to the flow of water, for example, through a hose. The water pressure in the hose is like the voltage and the amp value is like the volume of water flowing through the hose.
