More specifically, it is defined as the amount of charge that flows past a location in a material per unit time. The letter "I" is the symbol for current. I = ΔQ Δt ΔQ is the amount of charge, and Δt is the time it flowed past the location. Return to Table of Contents The current depends on the type of material and the Electric Potential difference (voltage) across it.
2 Slide 7 / 127 Electric Current Slide 8 / 127 Electric Current A good analogy to help understand Electric Current is to consider water flow. The flow of water molecules is similar to the flow of electrons (the charge carriers) in a wire. The current, I = ΔQ Δt has the units Coulombs per second. Water flow depends on the pressure exerted on the molecules either by a pump or by a height difference, such as water falling off a cliff. Electric current depends on the "pressure" exerted by the Electric Potential difference  the greater the Electric Potential difference, the greater the Electric Current. The units can be rewritten as Amperes (A). Amperes are often called "amps". 1 A = 1 C/s Slide 9 / 127 Electric Current Slide 10 / 127 Electric Current We know that if an Electric Potential difference is applied to a wire, charges will flow from high to low potential  a current. However, due to a convention set by Benjamin Franklin, current in a wire is defined as the movement of positive charges (not the electrons which are really moving) and is called "conventional current." Benjamin Franklin didn't do this to confuse future generations of electrical engineers and students. It was already known that electrical phenomena came in two flavors  attractive and repulsive  Franklin was the person who explained them as distinct positive and negative charges. He arbitrarily assigned a positive charge to a glass rod that had been rubbed with silk. He could just as easily called it negative  50/50 chance. The glass rod was later found to have a shortage of electrons (they were transferred to the silk). So if the glass rod is grounded, the electrons will flow from the ground to the rod. The problem comes in how Electric Potential is defined  charge carriers will be driven from high to low potential  from positive to negative. For this to occur in the glass rod  ground system, the conventional current will flow from the rod to the ground  opposite the direction of the movement of electrons. Slide 11 / 127 Electric Current To summarize  conventional Electric Current is defined as the movement of positive charge. In wires, it is opposite to the direction of the electron movement. However  in the case of a particle accelerator, where electrons are stripped off of an atom, resulting in a positively charged ion, which is then accelerated to strike a target  the direction of the conventional current is the same as the direction of the positive ions! An electric circuit is an external path that charges can follow between two terminals using a conducting material. For charge to flow, the path must be complete and unbroken. Slide 12 / 127 Circuits An example of a conductor used to form a circuit is copper wire. Continuing the water analogy, one can think of a wire as a pipe for charge to move through.
3 Slide 13 / C of charge passes a location in a circuit in 10 seconds. What is the current flowing past the point? Slide 14 / A circuit has 3 A of current. How long does it take 45 C of charge to travel through the circuit? Slide 15 / A circuit has 2.5 A of current. How much charge travels through the circuit after 4s? Each battery has two terminals which are conductors. The terminals are used to connect an external circuit allowing the movement of charge. Batteries convert chemical energy to electrical energy which maintains the potential difference. Slide 16 / 127 Batteries Positive Terminal The chemical reaction acts like an escalator, carrying charge up to a higher voltage. Negative Terminal Click here for a Battery oltage Simulation from PhET Slide 17 / 127 Reviewing Basic Circuits The circuit cannot have gaps. The bulb had to be between the wire and the terminal. A voltage difference is needed to make the bulb light. The bulb still lights regardless of which side of the battery you place it on. As you watch the video,observations and the answers to the questions below. What is going on in the circuit? What is the role of the battery? How are the circuits similar? different? Click here for video using the circuit simulator from PhET Slide 18 / 127 Batteries and Current The battery pushes current through the circuit. A battery acts like a pump, pushing charge through the circuit. It is the circuit's energy source. Charges do not experience an electrical force unless there is a difference in electrical potential (voltage).therefore, batteries have a potential difference between their terminals. The positive terminal is at a higher voltage than the negative terminal. click here for a video from eritasium's Derek on current How will voltage affect current?
4 Slide 19 / 127 Slide 20 / 127 Conductors Conductors Some conductors "conduct" better or worse than others. Reminder: conducting means a material allows for the free flow of electrons. The flow of electrons is just another name for current. Another way to look at it is that some conductors resist current to a greater or lesser extent. We call this resistance, R. Resistance is measured in ohms which is noted by the Greek symbol omega (Ω) Return to Table of Contents How will resistance affect current? Click here to run another PhET simulation Slide 21 / 127 Current vs Resistance & oltage Raising resistance reduces current. Raising voltage increases current. We can combine these relationships in what we call "Ohm's Law". I = R Another way to write this is that: R = I OR = IR Slide 22 / 127 Current vs Resistance & oltage Raising resistance reduces current and raising voltage increases current. However, this relationship is linear in only what we call Ohmic resistors. If the relationship is not linear, it is a nonohmic resistor. oltage NonOhmic Ohmic You can see that one # = A click here for a eritasium music video on electricity Current Slide 23 / 127 Slide 24 / A flashlight has a resistance of 25 # and is connected by a wire to a 120 source of voltage. What is the current in the flashlight? 5 How much voltage is needed in order to produce a 0.70 A current through a 490 # resistor?

Slide 26 / 127 Electrical Power Power is defined as work per unit time P = W t if W = Q then substitute: P = Q t if I = Q t then substitute: P = I What happens if the current is increased? What happens if the voltage is decreased? Slide 27 / 127 Electrical Power Slide 28 / 127 Electrical Power Let's think about this another way... The water at the top has GPE & KE. As the water falls, it loses GPE and the wheel gets turned, doing work.when the water falls to the bottom it is now slower, having done work. Electric circuits are similar. A charge falls from high voltage to low voltage. In the process of falling energy may be used (light bulb, run a motor, etc). What is the unit of Power? Slide 29 / 127 Electrical Power How can we rewrite electrical power by using Ohm's Law? (electrical power) P = I P = R P = 2 R (Ohm's Law) I = R Slide 30 / 127 Is there yet another way to rewrite this? (electrical power) P = I Electrical Power I = can be rewritten as = IR. R P = I(IR) P = I 2 R (Ohm's Law) = I R We can substitute this into Power
6 Slide 31 / 127 Batteries D, C, AA, & AAA have the same voltage, however they differ in the amount of power they deliver. Slide 32 / A toy car's electric motor has a resistance of 17 # ; find the power delivered to it by a 6 battery. D C AAA AA For instance, D batteries can deliver more current and therefore more power. Slide 33 / What is the power consumption of a flash light bulb that draws a current of 0.28 A when connected to a 6 battery? Slide 34 / A 30Ω toaster consumes 560 W of power: how much current is flowing through the toaster? Slide 35 / 127 Slide 36 / When 30 is applied across a resistor it generates 600 W of heat: what is the magnitude of its resistance? Resistivity and Resistance Return to Table of Contents
7 How could the wire in the circuit affect the current? If wire is like a pipe, and current is like water that flows through the pipe... Slide 37 / 127 "Pipe" size if there were pipes with water in them, what could we do to the pipes to change the speed of the water (the current)? Slide 38 / 127 Resistivity & Resisitance Every conductor "conducts" electric charge to a greater or lesser extent. The last example also applies to conductors like copper wire. Decreasing the length (L) or increasing the crosssectional area (A) would increase conductivity. Also, the measure of a conductor's resistance to conduct is called its resistivity. Each material has a different resistivity. Resistivity is abbreviated using the Greek letter rho (#). Combining what we know about A, L, and ρ, we can find a conductor's total resistance. R = #L A Slide 39 / 127 Resistivity & Resisitance Resistance, R, is measured in Ohms (Ω). Ω is the Greek letter Omega. Crosssectional area, A, is measured in m 2 Length, L, is measured in m R = #L A Resistivity, ρ, is measured in Ωm What is the resistance of a good conductor? Low; low resistance means that electric charges are free to move in a conductor. Slide 40 / 127 Resisitance # = RA L Click here for a PhET simulation about Resistance How can we define A for a wire? Slide 41 / 127 Resistivities of Common Conductors Slide 42 / Rank the following materials in order of best conductor to worst conductor.

9 Slide 49 / 127 Circuit Diagrams Drawing realistic pictures of circuits can be very difficult. For this reason, we have common symbols to represent each piece. Slide 50 / 127 Circuit Diagrams Draw a simple circuit that has a 9 battery with a 3 Ω resistor across its terminals. What is the magnitude and direction of the current? Resistor Battery Wire *Note: Circuit diagrams do not show where each part is physically located. Slide 51 / 127 Circuit Diagrams There are two ways to add a second resistor to the circuit. Conventional current flows from the positive terminal to the negative terminal. Slide 52 / 127 Circuit Diagrams Are the following sets of resistors in series or parallel? Series Parallel R 1 R 1 R 1 R 1 R 2 R 2 R 2 R 2 All charges must move through both resistors to get to the negative terminal. Charges pass through either R 1 or R 2 but not both. Slide 53 / 127 Equivalent Resistance Slide 54 / 127 Series Circuits: Equivalent Resistance Resistors and voltage from batteries determine the current. R1 R2 Circuits can be redrawn as if there were only a single resistor and battery.by reducing the circuit this way, the circuit becomes easier to study. What happens to the current in the circuit to the right? The process of reducing the resistors in a circuit is called finding the equivalent resistance (R eq). R1 R2

IR = I 1R 1 I 2R 2 I 3R 3 but since current (I) is the same everywhere in a series circuit, IR = IR 1 IR 2 IR 3 I = I 1 = I 2 = I 3 R eq = R 1 R 2 R 3... Now divide by I To find the equivalent resistance (R eq) of a series circuit, add the resistance of all the resistors.if you add more resistors to a series circuit, what happens to the resistance? Slide 57 / What is the equivalent resistance in this circuit? Slide 58 / What is the total current at any spot in the circuit?

R 2 R = 1 R1 2 R2 3 R3 Also, since = 1 = 2 = 3 so we can substitute for any other voltage R R 1 = Req = = ( 1 R1 R1 1 R1 R2 1 R2 1 R2 1 R3 R3 1 R3 ( oltage is a common factor, so factor it out! Divide by to eliminate voltage from the equation. Slide 65 / What is the equivalent resistance in the circuit?

Return to Table of Contents Since circuits in parallel have the same voltage, and a voltmeter has very high resistance, very little current passes through it. This means that it has little effect on the circuit. Slide 77 / 127 Ammeter Slide 78 / 127 Multimeter Current is measured using an ammeter. Ammeters are placed in series with a circuit. In order to not interfere with the current, the ammeter has a very low resistance. Although there are separate items to measure current and voltage, there are devices that can measure both (one at a time). These devices are called multimeters.multimeters can also measure resistance. Click here for a PhET simulation on circuits

L A C B D EMF & Terminal oltage E Return to Table of Contents Slide 81 / 127 Electromotive Force Slide 82 / 127 Electromotive Force r R eq E _ A battery is a source of voltage AND a resistor. Each battery has a source of electromotive force and internal resistance. Electromotive force (EMF) is the process that carries charge from low to high voltage. Another way to think about it is that EMF is the voltage you measure when no resistance is connected to the circuit. r R eq E _ Terminal voltage ( T) is the voltage measured when a voltmeter is across its terminals. If there is no circuit attached, no current flows, and the measurement will equal the EMF. If however a circuit is attached, the internal resistance will result in a voltage drop, and a smaller terminal voltage.

Slide 89 / 127 Slide 90 / 127 Kirchhoff's Rules Kirchhoff's Rules Up until this point we have been analyzing simple circuits by combining resistors in series and parallel and using Ohm's law. This works for simple circuits but in order analyze more complex circuits we need to use Kirchhoff's Rules which are based on the laws of conservation of charge and energy. Return to Table of Contents
16 Slide 91 / 127 Slide 92 / 127 Kirchhoff's First rule, or junction rule is based on the law of conservation of charge. It states: At any junction point, the sum of all currents entering the junction point must equal the sum of all the currents exiting the junction. For example, I 1 I 2 = I 3 Kirchhoff's Rules I 3 I 1 I 2 Kirchhoff's Second rule, or loop rule is based on the law of conservation of energy. It states: The sum of all changes in potential around any closed path must equal zero. For example, Kirchhoff's Rules The sum of the voltage drops is equal to the voltage across the battery =0 OR = Label and  for each battery. Slide 93 / 127 Problem Solving with Kirchhoff's Rules 2. Label the current in each branch with a symbol and an arrow. (Don't worry about the direction of the arrow. It it's incorrect the solution will be negative.) 3. Apply the junction rule to each junction. You need as many equations as there are unknowns. (You can also use Ohm's Law to reduce the number of unknowns.) 4. Apply the loop rule for each loop. (Pay attention to signs. For a resistor, the potential difference is negative. For a battery the potential difference is positive.) Slide 94 / 127 Problem Solving with Kirchhoff's Rules Find the unknowns in the following circuit: I2 = 2.6 A R1 = 5# R2 = 3# R3 =? R4 = 2# 3 = 1.87 = Solve the equations algebraically.

Every electron that moves to the negative plate leaves a positive nucleus behind. As the plates charge, the potential difference between the places increases. The current through the circuit decreases until the capacitor becomes fully charged.

Slide 118 / 127 RC Circuits When the switch is open, there is no current in the top branch with the capacitor and this circuit is simply two light bulbs in series. The current through the battery current would be /2R. Slide 119 / 127 RC Circuits Immediately after the switch is closed, there is no resistance in the branch with the capacitor so all of the current goes through that branch and bypasses the second light bulb. Therefore the current through the battery increases and is /R. Slide 120 / 127 RC Circuits A long time after the switch is closed, the capacitor is fully charged and there is no more current in the top branch. The rest of the circuit behaves as if the capacitor was disconnected. Therefore the current through the battery is back to /2R.
