1. Noob questions about electricity and magnetism

I've been going through my (crappy) textbook and i still don't really "get" what's actually happening in a circuit. The whole voltage thing is beginning to make a little more sense to me, though now i have a few more questions that the book doesn't really explain: is the current constant...
2. Noob questions about electricity and magnetism

I've heard this definition before and i get it, but when applied to points with charges it confuses me because isn't the voltage AT a point of charge infinite?
3. Noob questions about electricity and magnetism

Thanks for the response :) What do you mean by the voltage between the two terminals? is it the difference in charge (which should be twice the charge of either terminal, right?) divided by the distance between them? and does this mean that if you took the terminals of a battery and pulled...
4. Noob questions about electricity and magnetism

I'm a little confused about "voltage". We learned that voltage is somewhat similar to electric field: a way to refer to the potential energy of a charge A when put near charge B without actually knowing the charge of charge A. That made sense to me, but then suddenly in class (this is college...
