1. Chapter 18: Direct-Current Circuits Homework assignment : 9,16,28,41,50 • What is emf? • A current is maintained in a closed circuit by a source of emf. • The term emf was originally an abbreviation for electromotive force • but emf is NOT really a force, so the long term is discouraged. Source of EMF • Among such sources are any devices (batteries, generators etc.) that • increase the potential energy of the circulating charges. • A source of emf works as “charge pump” that forces electrons to move in • a direction opposite the electrostatic field inside the source.

2. Maintaining a steady current and electromotive force • When a charge q goes around a complete circuit and returns to its • starting point, the potential energy must be the same as at the beginning. • But the charge loses part of its potential energy due to resistance in a conductor. • There needs to be something in the circuit that increases the potential energy. • This something to increase the potential energy is called electromotive force • (emf). Units: 1 V = 1 J/C • Emf (E) makes current flow from lower to higher potential. A device that • produces emf is called a source of emf. Source of EMF source of emf • If a positive charge q is moved from b to a inside the • source, the non-electrostatic force Fn does a positive • amount of work Wn=qE on the charge. • -This replacement is opposite to the electrostatic force • Fe, so the potential energy associated with the charge • increases by qVab. For an ideal source of emf Fe=Fn • in magnitude but opposite in direction. • -Wn=qE=qVab, so Vab=E=IR for an ideal source. b a - + current flow

3. Internal resistance • Real sources in a circuit do not behave ideally; the potential difference • across a real source in a circuit is not equal to the emf. Vab=E – Ir (terminal voltage, source with internal resistance r) • So it is only true that Vab=E only when I=0. Furthermore, E –Ir = IR or I = E / (R + r) Source of EMF

Loop 2 i i i2 i1 Loop 1 i i i2 • Introduction • Many practical resistor networks cannot be reduced to simple series-parallel • combinations (see an example below). • Terminology: • A junction in a circuit is a point where three or more conductors meet. • A loop is any closed conducting path. junction Kirchhoff’s Rules junction
