### Chapter 22Current Electricity

Milbank High School

Sec. 22.1Current and Circuits
• Objectives
• Define an electric current and the ampere
• Describe conditions that create current in an electric circuit
• Draw circuits and recognize that they are closed loops
• Define power in electric circuits
• Define resistance and describe Ohm’s law
Electric Currents
• Electric current
• A flow of charged particles
• Conventional current
• conductors
• Battery
• Photovoltaic cell
Rate of Charge Flow
• Coulomb
• Ampere
• Power

P = IV

• Example Problem Pg. 511
Resistance and Ohm’s Law
• Resistance

R = V/I

Resistance (R) is the ratio of potential difference (V) to the current (I)

• Ohm’s Law
• Resistors
• Superconductors
Drawing Electric Circuits
• Schematic
• Parallel Connection
• Ammeter
• Series Connection
• Symbols
Sec. 22.2Using Electric Energy
• Objectives
• Explain how electric energy is converted into thermal energy
• Determine why high-voltage transmission lines are used to carry electric energy over long distances
• Define kilowatt-hour
Using Electric Energy
• Electric energy is converted to mechanical energy (motor)
• Electric energy converted to light (lamp)
• Both of these get hot (some energy is converted to thermal energy)
• Heating resistors
• Space heater, hot plate, iron
• Act as resistors in a circuit

E = I2Rt

Transmission of Electric Energy
• Thermal energy is produced at a rate of

P = I2R

• Used to calculate thermal energy loss in long-distance transmission
• Kilowatt-hour
• Equal to 1000 watts delivered continuously for 3600 seconds (1 hour)
