Resistors In An ac Circuit

- Current and voltage arein stepwith each other.(in phase)

- The average valueof the current over one cycle is zero.
- Power formula:

rms Current

- rms current(root mean square)
- It is the direct current that would dissipate the same amount of energy in a resistor as an ac current of that value.

Rms Voltage

- Rms voltage
- 120 V rms in our homes

Ohm’s Law In An ac Circuit

- Ohm’s Lawis valid for resistors in ac circuits.

Review

- Capacitors in a dc circuit
- Charging
- As the voltage across the capacitor increases, the current decreases.

- RC time constant

- Charging

Capacitors In An ac Circuit

- In a capacitive ac circuit, the current always leads the voltage by 90o.

- Three important relationships:
- The instantaneous voltage across the resistor is in phase with the instantaneous current.
- The instantaneous voltage across the inductor leads the instantaneous current by 90o.
- The instantaneous voltage across the capacitor lags the instantaneous current by 90o.

Maxwell’s Theory

- Electric field lines originate on positive charges and terminate on negative charges.
- Magnetic field lines always form closed loops.
- A varying magnetic field induces an emf and hence an electric field.
- Magnetic fields are generated by moving charges (or currents).
21.18

Maxwell’s Hypothesis

- A changing electric field should produce a magnetic field.
- This could not be proven experimentally because the electric fields were too weak to detect at the time.

Maxwell’s Prediction

- Maxwell came up with the concept of electromagnetic waves and predicted that they would travel at the speed of light.
21.20

Maxwell’s Conclusion

- He concluded that light waves are electromagnetic in nature.

Hertz’s Discovery

- Hertz was the first to generate and detect electromagnetic waves in the laboratory.

The Speed of EM Waves

- Hertz showed that electromagnetic radiation traveled at the speed of light.

Hertz’s Contribution

- Hertz’s experiments provided the first proof of Maxwell’s theories.

Production Of EM Waves By An Antenna

- Energy stored in an LC circuit is constantly transferred between the electric and magnetic fields.
- Electromagnetic waves are generated if this happens rapidly.
- Antennas are used to produce electromagnetic waves.

- Antennas are used to produce electromagnetic waves.

- Electromagnetic waves are generated if this happens rapidly.
