    8th Grade Reading Level Text Sample: The unit of electrical work is the joule. The joule is the amount of work done by one coulomb flowing through a potential difference of one volt. If five coulombs flow through a potential difference of one volt, five joules of work are done. The time it takes these coulombs to flow through the potential difference has no bearing on the amount of work done. Amperes are a measurement of current, which is a rate of current flow.(NCCER Level 1 Electrical, Years 1 & 2 textbook)
