Measuring Electrical Energy
What will we be learning today?

  • In this lesson, we are going to learn all about measuring electrical energy.

Measuring Electrical Energy

  • Electrical energy can be measured in a number of ways. The circuit with two batteries has twice as many electrons flowing as the circuit with one battery. The bulb is brighter when two batteries are present. The brightness of a bulb can measure electrical energy.

  • We can also use different kinds of meters to measure electrical energy. An ammeter measures amperes, or amps. It tells us how many electrons flow each second. The voltmeter measures volts. Volts are another measure of electrical energy.
