Electrical circuit: A complete loop of material that conducts electricity.

Frequency: When describing energy that acts like waves, the number of times that the entire waveform repeats per second.

Amplitude: When describing energy that acts like waves, when graphing the waveform centered on the X axis, and graphing some kind of power (for example, voltage) on the Y axis, the amplitude is the maximum height of the curve over the X axis.

Phase: When describing energy that acts like waves, in a sine wave, the specific point or place in the repeating continuous wave.

Bit time: In an encoding scheme, the time period during which the encoding scheme
