Physics Unit 16 - Electricity
High School, College, and AP Physics 1
Electricity is one of the most fascinating topics in physics. We all know what electricity is and we use it every day in our lives. Yet, do we really know what electricity is? The physics of electricity is one of the most important topics to learn and understand. Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a battery and power from an outlet? What is the difference between all of these batteries we have in our house? Why do some things take multiple batteries and others not many at all? Can anything that operates on a battery also just be plugged in to an outlet?
We will cover some very important topics in this unit:
- Ohm's Law
- Voltmeter, Ammeters, Multi-meters
- Electric Power and Energy

Corey Mousseau is a highly qualified classroom science teacher in New York State. He has been teaching physics and related courses in NY State for over 15 years.
Physics is often overwhelming for many students. Over the years Corey has mastered the art of exciting students into falling in love with this wonderful field of science. Through a blend of conceptual understanding, demonstrations, and quantitative analysis Corey has found the correct formula for engaging individuals into highly successful physics students.
Corey holds a degree in secondary education in physics as well as a master's degree in integrating technology in the classroom. He a high school Cross Country Coach, a Science Olympiad Coach, and a New York State Master Teacher. Corey has a lovely wife, two young boys, and teachers at Plattsburgh High School in upstate NY.
While at Plattsburgh High School (PHS) Corey has had the opportunity to teach many different courses which have all had a focus on excellence, rigor, and mastery.
Courses Corey currently teaches during the traditional school day:
- AP Physics 1
- AP Physics 2
- NY State Regents Physics
- AP Physics C: Mechanics
- Robotics 1
- Robotics 2
- Science Olympiad
Corey has been a dedicated science teacher since he was 22 years old and has influenced countless students along the way. His students show him respect, admiration, and commitment and he provides them with the same. Ask any student at PHS - Mr. Mousseau cares and is more than willing to help you become the strongest physics student you can.
