a. AC (Alternating Current)
Alternating Current entails the motion of electrons or electric current via a conductor in all directions, that is, the electrons keep switching directions.
The conducting agent is usually a wire connected within the electric circuit (Coles, 2012).
2. Diagrams of AC current
3. Current is flowing in both directions as you can see from the diagram.
b. DC (Direct Current)
A power system that simply represents the flow of electric current or energy in one direction, that is, unidirectional.
AC and DC can be related and vice versa, explicitly, DC (Direct Cur...
