Presentation Transcript
Resistant series circuits
• These circuits involve only resistors such as light bulbs
• Equivalent resistance is determined.
• Req = R1 + R2 + …
• Use V = IR to determine I. Calculate voltage drop across each resistor.
• Practice time.
Resistant parallel circuits
• These circuits involve only resistors such as light bulbs
• Equivalent resistance is determined.
• 1/Req = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + …
• Use V = IR to determine I. Calculate voltage drop across each resistor.
• Practice time.
Series RC circuits
• Equivalent resistance and capacitance is determined.
• Req = R1 + R2 + …
• 1/Ceq = 1/C1 + 1/C2 + …
• Use V = IR to determine I. Calculate voltage drop across each resistor.
• Use q = CV and divide by time to get current. We will not do this since current changes.
• Practice time.
Parallel RC circuits
• Equivalent resistance and capacitance is determined.
• 1/Req = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + …
• Ceq = C1 + C2 + …
• Use V = IR to determine I. Calculate voltage drop across each resistor.
• Use q = CV and divide by time to get current. We will not do this since current changes.
• Practice time.
Complex circuits
• Use same principles to isolate one equivalent resistance and reverse engineer solution to circuit.
• Lots of practice time to follow.
Kirchoff’s laws
• Voltage Law: The sum of all of the voltages around any closed loop must equal 0.
• Current Law: The sum of all currents in any node must equal 0.
• These may be used to help solve complex circuits.
Silicon chips

Silicon has no free electrons and makes a very good insulator.

Its large atomic radii make it ideal for doping.

Silicon doping
• N type semiconductors have phosphorus or arsenic put in the silicon matrix. With 5 electrons, they provide one unbonded electron each.
• P type semiconductors have boron or gallium put in the silicon matrix. With only 3 electrons, they result in a deficiency of electrons, or a hole.
Silicon doping

No current flows this way.

If we reverse the battery, what happens?

Silicon doping
• Transistors use 3 layers of doped silicon, and can be PNP or NPN types.
• Current will not flow unless you apply a small current to the center section, in which case it amplifies the current flow.
• Transistors allowed the creation of the silicon chip and the microprocessor used in computers.
How are transistors used?
• To switch electronic signals between on and off positions. This is a simple logic circuit.
• To amplify the signal obtained. These are used in radios, TV’s, etc to produce volume.
