What is an electric current that reverses direction in a circuit at regular intervals?
Alternating Current (AC). If it doesn't reverse direction it's Direct Current (DC). ...

What is the difference between dc and ac electricity?
Alternating Current (AC): electric current that flows back and forth at regular intervals called cycles. Direct Current (DC): electric current flowing in one direction. So the only difference between them is the way the current flows beneath them. ...

What is a regular repeating arrangement of atoms within a rock called?
crystal A crystal is a regular, repeating arrangement of atoms in a rock. -Jyb :) ...

Can a cartridge primer be set off by an electric current?
There are primers that are directly fired by an electric current- they are non standard, and rarely seen. Regular primers are fired by being struck- impact- but can explode at high temperatures. If a current passing through a primer raises the temperature enough, it will explode. ...
What will happen when electrons pass through a superconductor?
Any electrons flowing through a superconductor will show up as a regular electric current. ...
What makes a crystal a crystal?
The electrostatic force is the main reason for crystal to exist as crystal. When the molecules form together in a precise regular repeating pattern throughout the entire crystal, with different types of bonds depending on the type of crystal. ...

What type of current flows through an electric current?
Current is the flow of electrons. This could be DC (direct current like what you find in a battery) or AC (alternating current, what you find in a regular plug for example). Current is measured in Amperes or amps. And if you have the unfortunate chance of being shocked, amps are what could actually harm you or kill you. ...

Current that reverses direction in the regular pattern is called?
Current that reverses direction in the regular pattern is called an alternating current, abbreviated as 'AC'. ...

How metallic bonding causes metals to conduct electric current?
Metals conduct electricity and electric current. Electric current is possible when charged particles are free to move. A metallic bond is the bond between a positive metal and the atoms in metal (metal atoms combined in regular patterns in which valence electrons are free to move from atom to atom). ~let me guess page 180 problem 16 haha physical science :) ...

How electric current causes death?
Electric current causes death by disrupting the regular beating of our heart. A very small amount of current is needed for the current to be conducted all around our body. However, our skin has very high resistance to electricity (I remember it is over 100,000 ohms) so we do not get the shock. When our skin is wet, the resistivity of our skin drops to merely a few hundred ohms. According to the formula V=IR, where V is voltage in volts,...
