Resources and Going Further

In this tutorial we've uncovered just a tiny portion of the tip of the proverbial iceberg. There's still a ton of concepts left uncovered. From here we'd recommend you step right on over to our Voltage, Current, Resistance, and Ohm's Law tutorial. Now that you know all about electric fields (voltage) and flowing electrons (current), you're well on your way to understanding the law that governs their interaction.
