This is a trivia fact quiz about Alessandro Volta and the Electricity. He is an Italian physicist and inventor that is credited for discovering electricity and making the first known battery in an attempt to make electricity last longer. Do you know some of the improvements made to his invention till today? Take up the quiz below and get to find out!

• 1.

### The difference of electrical potential between two points of an electrical or electronic circuit, expressed in volts is named____________

• A.

Amperage

• B.

Voltage

• C.

Potential

• D.

Circuit

• E.

Relativity

B. Voltage
Explanation
Voltage is the correct answer because it refers to the difference in electrical potential between two points in a circuit, measured in volts. Amperage refers to the flow of electric current, potential is a general term that can refer to different types of potential (such as electrical, gravitational, etc.), circuit refers to the complete path of an electric current, and relativity is a concept in physics unrelated to electrical potential.

### Volta discovered the Electrophorus; it's a...

• A.

Battery

• B.

Type of ship

• C.

Very long copper string

• D.

Device that produces a static electric charge

• E.

New type of short skirt

D. Device that produces a static electric charge
Explanation
Volta's discovery of the Electrophorus refers to a device that produces a static electric charge. The Electrophorus is an early form of an electrostatic generator, consisting of a metal plate and an insulating handle. When the plate is charged by rubbing it with a material like fur, it can induce a static electric charge on another object without losing its own charge. This device played a significant role in the study of electricity and laid the foundation for further advancements in the field.
