A potential difference which drives a current round a circuit - a voltage.
The force or electrical pressure that causes electrons to move.
the electrostatic potential difference between the terminals of a circuit or battery when no current is flowing.
Force that produces or tries to produce a movement of electric charges; and electric current.
Force that causes the motion of electrons due to potential difference between two points. (voltage) also see: AKA: Antonym: -twysted
That force which determines the flow of electricity; a difference of electric potential.
Most often called "voltage" (symbol E). It is the pressure applied to move electrons in a complete circuit. In a storage battery, EMF is the difference in potential between the positive and negative poles. Potential is limited by the number and type of cells and the strength of the electrolyte. EMF or voltage is measured by using a "voltmeter" connected in parallel tot he circuit being measured.
the rate at which energy is drawn from a source that produces a flow of electricity in a circuit; expressed in volts
a force which is electric in nature
Force that causes the movement of electricity, such as potential difference of voltage. A measure of voltage in an electrical circuit.
Potential causing electricity to flow in a closed circuit.
The force that causes charge carriers to move from a location with high potential to a location with lower potential.
(EMF) Difference in electrical potential measured in volts.
The electromotive force is the force that pushes electrons around a circuit. It can be supplied by a battery and is measured in units of volts. The electromotive force is often abbreviated to EMF. Rivers of Electrons
See voltage.
Electromotive force (emf), often denoted by (lower-case epsilon), is a measure of the strength of a source of electrical energy and is measured in volts.
A synonym for voltage, usually restricted to generated voltage.
Electrical potential; voltage.
The force that pushes electrons through a conductor.
The potential difference between the two electrodes in a cell. The cell emf is the cell voltage measured when no current is flowing through the cell. It can be measured by means of a pH meter with high input impedance.
(EMF): A difference in electrical potential that causes the flow of current.
The force (voltage) that produces an electric current in a circuit.
