• Section 20.12 – A covered in clss

### last time we discussed a real battery

E= enf=internal voltage

Internal resistance reduces

the effective voltage of the

battery.

Use this in the experiment with the W wire!

### the Kirchoff corporation.

• From the current unit:

• The current entering a node is equal to the current leaving it.

What goes in must come out!

Direction doesn’t matter.

### The Loop Equation

If you start at a point in a circuit and go around the loop and return to the same place, the change in potential is zero. Or: The sum of the voltage rises = the sum of the voltage drops=0

### This week

• We continue our exploration or DC circuits.

• There is a WebAssign which you should be able to answer later in the week. Feel free to actually read the textbook and start sooner!

• There will be a QUIZ on Friday.

• Examinations have been returned.

### Be aware

• The “exploration” approach leaves much out of the classroom discussion.

• Some of this required material may be found in the textbook.

• WebAssign can serve as a guide to some of this.

### ANOTHER DEFINITION

(Average) Current Density

The total charge moving from A to B must be the

Same or charge would build up at the interface.

A B

### NOTE

• Electric Current is DEFINED as the flow of POSITIVE CHARGE.

• It is really the electrons that move, so the current is actually in the opposite direction to the actual flow of charge. (Thank Franklin!)

### Ohm

• A particular object will resist the flow of current.

• It is found that for any conducting object, the current is proportional to the applied voltage.

• STATEMENT: DV=IR

• R is called the resistance of the object.

• An object that allows a current flow of one ampere when one volt is applied to it has a resistance of one OHM.

### How?

A wire has a resistance of 20 Ω. It is melted down, and from the same volume of metal a new wire is made that is three times longer than the original wire. What is the resistance of the new wire?

The Real Deal

A current I flows through a device. The difference in potential

from one side of the device to the other is V. How much POWER

is dissipated in the device?

• Sections: 20.1-20.4

• Sections: 20.6-20.9

• Watch for a new WebAssign that will be due on TUESDAY evening so we can get back on schedule.

• The meter doesn’t seem to function correctly for this experiment

• Significant contact resistance … the pressure on the contact is important. The meter works better at higher currents.

• Here is data from another meter.

• Use this data and bypass the experiment.

A portable CD player operates with a voltage of 4.5 V, and its power usage is 0.21 W. What is the current in the player?

### Back to WORK!

An especially violent lightning bolt has an average current of 1.15 103 A lasting 0.146 s. How much charge is delivered to the ground by the lightning bolt?

Two wires are identical, except that one is aluminum and one is iron. The aluminum wire has a resistance of 0.20 Ω. What is the resistance of the iron wire?

0.688Ω

The filament in an incandescent light bulb is made from tungsten. The light bulb is plugged into a 60 V outlet and draws a current of 0.96 A. If the radius of the tungsten wire is 0.0050 mm, how long must the wire be? 0.0877m
