Voltage: Put simply, this is the force with which electrons are pushed around in an electrical circuit. Think of this like the pressure in a water hose.  Measured in Volts (V). A higher Voltage will make a motor turn faster, or a light bulb burn brighter.

Amps: A measure of how much electricity is used, or is available to be used at any one time.  Think of this like the size of a water hose.  Measured in Amps (A). A higher Amperage will give a motor more torque and faster acceleration.

Watts:  Amps multiplied by Volts gives you Watts; a measure of the work that electricity does per second.
