Basic Principles of Electricity™

This program explains the basic principles of electrical energy in an easy-to-understand, non-technical way. If electricity escapes the path of its intended circuits, the results can be shock, burns, respiratory failure, asphyxiation, internal bleeding and cardiac arrest to the human body, as well as physical damage to surrounding property.
