q2

• Suppose the charges q q1 and q2 have opposite signs. For example, suppose q2 represents the charge on a proton and q1 the charge on an electron as in a hydrogen atom.

• The force is now directed opposite to : it acts to attract particles of opposite sign.

• Particles of the same sign are repelled

• Coulomb’s Law: q

• With charges expressed in units of Coulombs (C) and distance in m, F is in Newtons (N), with k = 8.99x109Nm2C-2

• Check units:

N Nm2C-2 C2 m-2

• The charge passing position P in the conductor in unit time defines what is known as current

• If charge Δq passes P in time Δt, then I = Δq/ Δt defines current

• I has dimensions of charge per unit time, Coulomb sec-1

• The unit of current is the ampere (A) honoring Andre-Marie Ampere (1775-1836)

P

• The electrostatic force on a particle of charge q is given by qE

• Here E is a vector known as the electric field

• The gravitational force on a particle of mass m is given by mg, where g is the acceleration of gravity

• E, the electric field, is analogous to the field defining the gravitational force experienced by a particle of unit mass

• To move a particle of charge q through a displacement by qΔr in the presence of an electric field E requires an input of work

• If we wish to move q in a direction opposite to E, then is negative. Hence ΔW is positive. Work must be done to move a (positive) charge q against the direction of the electric field.

• Work must be done to move a mass m up against the gravitational field.

• Work done to move unit charge from a by qb in the presence of an electric field E:

• V is known as the electric potential or simply as the potential. The potential is expressed in units of Volts (V)

• It follows that the electric field has dimensions of Vm by q-1

• A positive charge placed in the electric field E will accelerate in the direction of the field:

ΔW < 0  Vb – Va < 0

 Vb < Va

• The motion proceeds from high to low voltage

• Gravitational analogue: If mass falls from ab, its kinetic energy increases, its potential energy decreases

• A material with the property that it can maintain a net flow of charge is known as a conductor. Examples: copper or aluminum wire.

• In the presence of an electric field, or equivalently a voltage differential, electrons will move

• Electrons move from low to high voltage: current flows from high to low as though charge was transferred by positively charged particles.

• 1A is equivalent to a flow of charge equal to 1C sec-1

• Charged particles experienced a force due not only to the electric field but also due to the magnetic field F = q v x B

• With F in N, q in C, v in m/s, B has dimensions of NC-1m-1s or N A-1 m-1

• The unit of magnetic field in the SI system is the tesla (T) – Serbian-American Nikola Tesla (1856-1943).

• Strength of the Earth’s magnetic field at mid latitudes is about 7x10-5T = 0.7 Gauss (G)

• A current can produce a magnetic field electric field but also due to the magnetic field

• Intensity of the magnetic field defined by the Biot-Savart Law.

• To find the direction of the magnetic field at pt. P, place your thumb along direction of current flow at Q  extend hand towards P  curl of fingers with indicate direction of B

• Consider currents flowing in 2 contiguous wires, 1 and 2. Assume wires are long, straight, and parallel

• The force on a length l of 2 due to wire 1 is given by

Here R defines the separation of the wires

• If the currents are flowing in the same direction, the wires are drawn together. If currents are flowing in opposite directions, wires are driven apart

• Concept of magnetic flux the strength of the magnetic field produced by a currentФm = B.n ∆A

• If B is constant over the area and perpendicular to the area, then Фm = B A

• Consider coil rotating at a uniform rate (1791-1841) states that ω θ= ωt

• At orientation θ, Фm = BAcosωt

• ε(t) = BAωsinωt

• ε oscillates in time

• Since, by Ohm’s Law, ε = IR 

• Example of an alternating current

Figure A1.16 (1791-1841) states that

If number of turns in secondary circuit is larger than in primary, voltage is increased.

If smaller, voltage is decreased.

Step-up or step-down transformer

Development of the US electric power system primary, voltage is increased.

• Beginning of modern electric industry, 1882

• Edison’s Pearl Street generating station operational on Sep. 4, 1882

• Consumed 10 pounds of coal per kilowatt-hour

• Served 59 customers charging 24 cents/ kilowatt-hour

• By end of 1880’s small central stations in many US cities

• Development of hydroelectric plant at Niagara Falls by George Westinghouse in 1896. Delivered power to Buffalo, 20 miles away

Development of the US electric power system primary, voltage is increased.

• Municipally owned utilities supplied street lighting and trolley services. Accounted for 8% of total power generation in 1900

• Residential rate fall to <17 cents a kilowatt-hour

• Consolidation in generating industry. By late 1920s, 16 companies controlled >75% of total US generating capacity

• State regulation of utilities. Later federal involvement with creation of Federal Power Commission in 1920

• Electric power capacity grew at ~12% per year from 1901-1932

• Rural Electrification Act of 1936 established the Rural Electrification Administration

• By 1941, 35% of farms were electrified.

• Hoover Dam, 1936; Grand Coulee 1941

• During 1960’s environmental concerns with power generation begin to have influence
