electricity as you know it
Electricity as you know it!
  • Electric Current is a flow of charged particles.
  • Conventional Current is the direction in which a positive test charge moves.
    • The flow of electrons and conventional current are in opposite directions
electric current
Electric Current

Electric Current is measured in Amperes (A, or amps)

1 Ampere is equal to 1Coulomb moved past a single point in 1 second

electric current1
Electric Current

Electric current is the measure of electrons moving past a certain point. Much like the current of a river is measure by the amount of water moving past a certain point.

electric current2
Electric Current

I is current measured in Amperes (A)

Delta q is charge measured in Coulombs(C)

t is time measured in seconds (s)

slide10
Amps

0.001-0.01 Amps = Little to no shock

0.01-0.02 Amps = Painful shock

0.02-0.075 Amps= Serious shock, muscle control lost

0.075-0.1 Amps = Heart misses beats

0.1-0.2 Amps= Changes heart’s rhythm, possible death

slide11
Amps

Over 0.2 Amps = Severe burns and muscle contraction. Heart stops from chest muscle pressure. Internal organs are damaged. Can survive if you are removed from the circuit fast enough. Very painful recovery, but heart very likely to go back to its regular beat

slide12
Amps

If a wire has 1 amp of current running through it should you touch it?

Learn how to draw schematic diagrams of electrical circuits.

Learn about “electrical friction” in long wires and other objects

energy lost in wires
Energy Lost in Wires

Just like friction in mechanics, electric circuits have friction that cause energy to be lost. It is called “Resistance”

ohm s law
Ohm’s Law

Around 1825 Ohm was experimenting with electricity when he noticed an important trend between the current in a circuit and the voltage.

resistance in the wires
Resistance in the Wires

In schematics we will ignore the resistance in the wires. (Much like we ignore air resistance).

But this will not always be the case.

resistance in a wire
Resistance in a Wire

In real life it is often important to know how much voltage you lose due to resistance in a wire.

It is easy to calculate!

resistance in a wire1
Resistance in a Wire

R is the resistance in the wire measured in Ohms (Ω)

is the resistivity of the wire measured in Ohms*meter (Ω*m)

L is the length of the wire measured in meters (m)

A is the cross-sectional area of the wire measured in meters squared ()

resistivity
Resistivity

Resistivity is a property of each material.

It is a constant number that is different for each material.

Variable Resistor Demos

Learn how to measure the current and the voltage at different points in a circuit

variable resistor demo
Variable Resistor Demo

A variable resistor or a slide resistor is a very handy device.

It allows you to change the resistance of an object to any resistance in a set range.

Examples: Dim light switches, volume knobs, fan speed, heaters, etc.

measuring current
Measuring Current

You measure current with an “Ammeter”

Current is how much charge is going through a loop of a circuit so you must connect the ammeter in the loop of the circuit.

measuring potential difference voltage
Measuring Potential Difference (Voltage)

You measure potential difference (voltage) with a “Voltmeter”.

When you measure voltage you measure between two points or “across” an object in the circuit.

grades
Grades

Answer the following questions in complete sentences:

Did you follow through with what you wanted to change last time?

Are you currently happy with your grade?

What will you do to improve your grade?

power
Power

Power, which is still measured in Watts, is the rate at which energy is transferred.

Most appliances, such as a hair dryer are rated in watts.

power1
Power

If a generator transfers 1 Joule of kinetic energy to electrical energy each second, it is transferring energy at the rate of 1 Joule/second.

power2
Power

It is more common to use P=VI when working with electricity, so we tend to use this equation when solving for the power of a part of a circuit.

power3
Power

Pis the power, in Watts

V is the potential difference, in Volts

I is the current, in Amps

R is the resistance, in Ohms

This is useful because you only need two variables to calculate the power!

example2
Example

How much power does an oven draw from a circuit breaker if the oven has a potential difference of 220V and draws 40 amps of current?

P=VI

P=220V*40A

P=8,800Watts

practice3
Practice

How much electrical current does a clothing iron use that draws 1,600W and has a potential difference of 120V?

P=VI

1,600W=120V*I

I=13.33Amps

practice4
Practice

What is the resistance of the same iron?

1,600W=(13.33Amps)^2 *R

R=9Ω

R=9Ω

circuit breakers
Circuit Breakers

Circuit breakers are an engineering marvel that prevent billions of house fires

When an appliance is trying to draw a dangerous amount of current from a circuit breaker it “trips”, or disconnects itself from the circuit, causing all current to stop.

tripping breakers
Tripping Breakers

A breaker is easily reset by just moving the switch.

If a breaker continually trips it means you must go and unplug something from that circuit, or that the circuit is corrupted (improperly grounded, or shorted)

homework
Homework

Find a household appliance (hair dryer, oven, washing machine, hair straightener or curler, Xbox, TV, laptop, etc.) and figure out its power, current, voltage, and resistance.

  • There are two types of circuits
    • Series Circuits – when the current only has one way to flow
    • Parallel Circuits – when the current has two or more ways to flow

series circuit1
Series Circuit

Why do both light bulbs glow equally?

Charge cannot be created destroyed and since the charge only has one path to flow, all of it must flow through both light bulbs.

series circuit2
Series Circuit

If current does not decrease when it passes through a lamp, where does the energy to light the lamps come from?

P=VI

The current doesn’t change so there must be a potential difference across each lamp.

series circuit3
Series Circuit

The resistance of each light bulb must be constant, if the potential difference, and the current are both constant.

series circuit4
Series Circuit

From the river model, you know that the height from sea level to the top of the mountain equals the height that the water drops.

The potential difference across the battery equals the sum of the potential differences across lamp 1 and lamp 2.

series circuit5
Series Circuit

So you can write:

Where is the voltage of the battery, generator, etc.

are the potential differences of all the different objects in the whole series circuit

Where Req is the total resistance in a series circuit

are the resistances of each object in the circuit

parallel circuits
Parallel Circuits

Picture a mountain that has multiple rivers running down it all with different amounts of water.

Same drop in height over each path, but can have different amounts of water

parallel circuits1
Parallel Circuits

Similar to the mountain, in parallel circuits the total current is the sum of the currents through each path, and the potential difference across each path is the same.

parallel circuits2
Parallel Circuits

Draw and label this diagram (make it big)

What is the voltage across each resistor?

What is the current in each part of the circuit?

What is the total current?

parallel circuits3
Parallel Circuits

I is the total current in the circuit

and the currents across each segment of the parallel circuit

V is the total potential difference in the circuit

are the voltages across each resistor in the parallel circuit

parallel circuits4
Parallel Circuits

So we know how to find the total current and the total potential difference in a parallel circuit. What about the total resistance in a parallel circuit?

parallel circuits5
Parallel Circuits

0.1A

0.2A

0.05A

First lets find the total current

Current = 0.35A

parallel circuits6
Parallel Circuits

But 90+45+180 doesn’t equal 25.7!

That’s because placing 2 or more resistors in parallel always decreases the equivalent resistance of a circuit.

The resistance decreases because each new resistor provides an additional path for current, thereby increasing the total current while the potential difference remains unchanged.

parallel circuits7
Parallel Circuits

Req is the total resistance in a parallel circuit.

R1,R2,R3 are the resistances of each resistor in the parallel circuit
