Loop rule

V = iR

P = iV

Resistors and Capacitors


Key formula: V=iR Q=CV

In series: same current same charge

Req=∑Rj 1/Ceq=∑1/Cj

In parallel: same voltage same voltage

1/Req=∑1/Rj Ceq=∑Cj

Capacitors and Resistorsin Series and in Parallel

  • What’s the equivalent resistance (capacitance)?

  • What’s the current (charge) in each resistor (capacitor)?

  • What’s the potential across each resistor (capacitor)?

  • What’s the current (charge) delivered by the battery?

Problem: 28.P.024. [566302]

In the figure below, a charged particle moves into a region of uniform magnetic field , goes through half a circle, and then exits that region. The particle is either a proton or an electron (you must decide which). It spends 160 ns in the region.

(a) What is the magnitude of B?

(b) If the particle is sent back through the magnetic field (along the same initial path) but with 3.00 times its previous kinetic energy, how much time does it spend in the field during this trip?
