Electricity is the flow of charge around a circuit carrying energy from the battery (or power supply) to components such as lamps and motors.
Transistor NPN A transistor amplifies current and can be used with other components to make an amplifier or switching circuit. This symbol is for a bipolar junction transistor (BJT), the type you are most likely to use at first.
Relay An electrically operated switch, for example a 9V battery circuit connected to the coil can switch an AC mains circuit. The rectangle represents the coil. NO = Normally Open, COM = Common, NC = Normally Closed.
Ohmmeter Measures resistance. Most multimeters have an ohmmeter setting.
