Ampere (A)
A unit of measurement for electron flow or current through an electrical circuit. (Amp = Volt / Ohm)
Ampere-Hour (AH)
A unit of measurement for electron flow or current through an electrical circuit for a certain period of time. (Ampere X Hour = Ampere-Hour).
In a lead acid battery, it is a dilute solution of sulfuric acid (H2SO4) and water.
A tool used to measure the specific gravity of the electrolyte solution.
Ohm (Ω)
A unit of measurement for electrical resistance within an electrical circuit. ( Ohm = Volt / Ampere )
Ohm's Law
Expresses the relationship between voltage ( volts ), current ( amperes ), and resistance ( ohms ). (Ohms = Volts / Amperes).
