Page 59 - An ampere is the unit of measurement of the strength of the current. Ohm's law: The strength of a current varies directly as the EMF and inversely as the resistance In arranging cells, the strongest current is obtained when the internal resistance of the battery is equal to the external resistance of the circuit. In divided circuits the amount of current that will flow through different branches is inversely as their resistances. Electrolysis is the decomposition (by the electric current) of compounds...
