Consider the human body. If you put your hands across a positive (+) and a negative (-) battery terminal, the high resistance of your body prevents the electrons from flowing through you. Yet when you touch the end of a spark plug wire, you can feel those electrons flowing right through you. The difference is the pressure. We are insulators at low pressure; yet, if the pressure, or voltage, is raised high enough, we become conductors. 6 volts of the battery is low enough so that the resistance of your body could not be overcome.

21 Figure 3-5 Water and current react the same way. It then becomes simple to realize that it is this quantity of pressurized electrons that will do work for us. Let us define work. Electricity working will give us light, heat, or magnetic field (Figure 3-6). It is important to realize that any time work is being done we will be producing one or more of these results. Most of the time, this work is desired or engineered into the circuit, but sometimes it is not. A bad connection, for example, might get warm as electrons flow through it.

Simply stated, a circuit is a path electricity travels fmm a source to a component that will do work and back to the source. A circuit does work. Voltage pushing current through resistance results in light, heat, or a magnetic field, which is defined as work. Let us consider a circuit and analyze its components or parts. At this point, let us use a battery as a source of power (Figure 3-11). We will study batteries in detail, discussing their construction and service, in Chapter 30, Chapter 31, and Chapter 32.
