1 Chapter 19 Electric Current, Resistance, and DC Circuit Analysis

2 I = dq/dt Current is charge per time SI Units: Coulombs/Second = Amps Direction of Electron Flow _ + Direction of Conventional Current: We will always use this.

3 Problem: Suppose one trillion electrons flow past a point in one half second. What is the current?

4 Why does charge move through a wire? V 1 _ + V 2 EMF (Voltage Source) V 2 >V 1 dv/dx = E x : An electric field must point from V 2 to V 1 inside the wire! Positive charges will move from V 2 to V 1.

5 Drift Velocity The speed of an electron is not the same as the average rate that the electron is drifting down a wire (v d ). In a time t, one electron will drift a distance L=v d t. The amount of charge that will move by a point in the time t will be Q = nela = nev d A t Where n is the number of free electrons per unit volume e is the electric charge. I = dq/dt = nev d A Define the current density (J) using I = J da, then J=nev d

6 Ohm s Law Voltage drop is a linear function of resistance and current V = IR SI Unit of resistance is Ohms (Ω) Using the current density: J = I/A (for constant A) V=IR EL=IR(A/A) = J(RA) E= J(RA/L) Define ρ = RA/L = 1/σ where σ is the conductivity and ρ is the resistivity Eσ = J ( physicists version of Ohm s law)

7 Gravitational Analogy 6 1 V V = IR eq 5 R R 2 2 V 1 = I 1 R 1 V 2 = I 2 R Voltage V V Position

8 Resistance is Related to Resistivity R=ρL/A R: Resistance ρ: Resistivity L: Length R: Cross-Sectional Area Resistivity is a property of a material, while resistance also depends on the shape of the material.

9 Problem: An aluminum wire and a copper wire each have a length of 10 meters. The aluminum has a cross sectional area of 1 mm 2 and the copper has a cross sectional area of 0.5 mm 2. What is the ratio of the resistance of the copper to the aluminum? (ρ for copper is Ω-m and for aluminum Ω-m)

10 Interactive Question Consider two copper wires. One has twice the length and twice the cross-sectional area of the other. How do the resistances of these two wires compare? A) Both have the same resistance B) The longer wire has twice the resistance C) The longer wire has four times the resistance D) The longer wire has half the resistance E) None of the above

11 Interactive Question A battery is connected to a wire having two different cross sectional areas as shown. Which entry below is correct? A) I 1 =I 2 =I 3, J 1 =J 2 =J 3 B) I 1 =I 2 =I 3, J 1 =J 3 <J 2 C) I 1 >I 2 >I 3, J 1 =J 2 =J 3 D) I 1 >I 2 >I 3, J 1 >J 2 >J 3 E) I 1 >I 2 >I 3, J 1 =J 3 <J 2

12 Interactive Question Two wires A and B are made of the same material and have the same length. Wire A has twice the cross sectional area of wire B. If each wire is connected to an identical battery, which is true concerning the current in wire A? Wire A Wire B A) It is one-fourth that in B B) It is four times that in B C) It is equal to the current in B D) It is half as much as that in B E) It is twice as much as that in B

13 For many metals resistivity is a function of temperature and is given by ρ = ρ 0 [1+α(T-T 0 )] where α is the coefficient of resistivity for the material, ρ 0 is the resistivity at temperature T 0, and ρ is the resistivity at temperature T where T > T 0. Then by substituting ρ = RA/L into this equation, RA/L = R 0 A/L[1+α(T-T 0 )] R = R 0 [1+α(T-T 0 )]

14 Power = Energy/Time For Electricity: P = qv/t = V(q/t) = IV Electric Power And since V = IR, we can write electric power as: P = IV (used for all devices) = I 2 R (only used for resistors) = V 2 /R (only used for resistors)

15 Interactive Question A 4 amp current is maintained in a simple circuit with a total resistance of 2 Ω. How much heat is generated in 3 seconds? A) 3 J B) 6 J C) 12 J D) 24 J E) 96 J

16 Electric Energy Electric energy (not power) is actually purchased from the electric company: Energy = Power Time (kw h) Power costs about \$0.10 per kwh A 1000 Watt hair dryer running for 10 minutes costs about (1 kw)(10 min)(1 hour/60 min)(\$0.10/kwh) = \$.017

17 Problem: How much does it cost to keep your computer on all the time for one month? The computer screen runs at about 4 amps using 120 V.

18 Interactive Question If the resistance in a constant voltage circuit is doubled, the power dissipated by that circuit will A) increase by a factor or two. B) increase by a factor of four. C) decrease by one-half its original value. D) decrease to one-fourth its original value.

19 Interactive Question At 120 V, which has a larger resistance, a 100 W light bulb or a 60 W light bulb? A) 100 W B) 60 W C) They both have the same resistance

20 Problem: A light bulb filament is made of tungsten which has a coefficient of resistivity α = C -1. At room temperature of 20 C the filament has a resistance of 10 Ω. (a)what is the average power of the light bulb immediately after it has been plugged into a 120 V ac outlet? (b) After a very brief time, the light bulb filament has changed temperature and is glowing brightly, the rms current is measured to be amp. What is the resistance of the light bulb now? (c) What is the average power of the light bulb when it is glowing brightly as in part (b)? (d) What is the temperature of the filament when it is glowing brightly?

21 Gravitational Analogy 6 1 V V = IR eq 5 R R 2 2 V 1 = I 1 R 1 V 2 = I 2 R 2 Current can be thought of as water flowing through a pipe 1 2 Voltage V V Position

22 Electronic components like resistors, capacitors, and batteries can be connected in series or parallel: Components connected in series have the same current flowing through them. Components connected in parallel have the same voltage drop across them.

23 Interactive Question Three identical light bulbs are arranged as shown. Rank the brightness of each bulb. A B C A) A>B>C B) C>B>A C) A=B=C

24 Kirchoff s Rules 1. Junction Rule. The sum of the magnitudes of the currents directed into a junction equals the sum of the magnitudes of the currents directed out of the junction. (Conservation of charge) 2. Loop Rule. Around any closed loop, the sum of the potential drops equals the sum of the potential rises. (Conservation of energy)

25 Using Kirchoff s Rules 1. Draw the circuit and draw currents with an arrow in every separate branch of the circuit. (A branch goes from one junction to the next junction.) 2. Apply the junction rule to enough junctions so that every current is used at least once. 3. Apply the loop rule to enough closed loops so that each current appears at least once. Remember the sign convention for the potential changes : a. Moving across a battery: plus sign if going from negative to positive terminal. b. Moving across a resistor: minus sign if going with the current.

26 _ V R + Using Kirchoff s Rules I +V IR = 0 V = IR _ V R + I +V + IR = 0 V = IR Negative sign indicates the actual current goes the opposite way from drawn.

27 Problem: Find the current and power in the 3 Ω resistor. What is the current in the other two resistors and the power dissipated in the other two resistors? R 1 = 6 Ω R 2 = 6 Ω R 3 = 3 Ω V 1 = 12 V V 2 = 3 V We now have 3 equations, and 3 unknown quantities.

28 Problem: If you now ground the point shown, what is the absolute potential at each of the indicated points? (d) R 1 = 6 Ω (f) (c) R 2 = 6 Ω (e) R 3 = 3 Ω (b) V 1 = 12 V V 2 = 3 V (a)

29 Resistors in Series V 1 V 2 I 1 = I 2 = I R 1 R 2 V V = V 1 + V 2 = IR 1 + IR 2 = I(R 1 + R 2 ) = IR S So, R S = R 1 + R 2 R 1 R 2 is equivalent to R S In general, R S = R 1 + R 2 + R

D) The power used by the entire circuit will increase. E) The current through R 1 and R 2 will decrease.
