A wire, a highly conductive medium, provides the path for the electrons </li> <li> Slide 11 </li> <li> Electricity - Circuits Battery/Power supply Q = Ne represents the charge difference E =VQ represents the work/ potential energy that these electrons possess E -Energy(J, Joules) V - Voltage, Electric Potential, Potential difference(V, Volts) </li> <li> Slide 12 </li> <li> Electricity - Clarification E=VQ should really be E = VQ E reflects the change in energy as the electrons do their work V is called potential difference or voltage, where V is just called electric potential. In Grade 12, we will clarify their differences. </li> <li> Slide 13 </li> <li> Electricity - Circuits Current (I measured in Amps,A) reflects the moving energy of the electrons. This energy is lost at the loads (applications) Instead of measuring their kinetic energy directly, current measures the amount of charge that moves past a given area in a second I = Q/t </li> <li> Slide 14 </li> <li> Electricity - Circuits Resistance is a measure of how much opposition the electrons experience as they move throughout the circuit. Sometimes this resistance is desired as it does work on the load. Sometimes it is not desired as seen the energy loss within the wire itself </li> <li> Slide 15 </li> <li> Circuits - Resistance Resistance at the load (symbol R, unit - Ohm,) - R = V/I Resitivity in the wire </li> <li> Slide 16 </li> <li> Resistivity - factors the type of metal (gold is the best conductor) the length of the loop the cross sectional path (thickness) the temperature (higher the temperature of the wire the higher the resistance) </li> <li> Slide 17 </li> <li> Resistivity - Equation R resistance, L length, A cross sectional area The coefficient depends upon the material. Values can be found in Table 13.1 of your PRACTICE PROBLEMS sheet. </li> <li> Slide 18 </li> <li> Resistance at the load The total resistance in the circuit dictates the voltage and current based on the limits of the power supply. The greater the resistance, the greater the need for energy (E=VQ) to pull one electron around the loop. This results in less electrons completing the loop (I ). (and vice versa) </li> <li> Slide 19 </li> <li> Resistance at the source We first look at the total Resistance in the circuit at the power supply The Power supplys overall resistance R T controls the size of V T and I T Ohms Law applies R T = V T /I T. </li> <li> Slide 20 </li> <li> The total Resistance in the circuit, mirrored at the power supply, must be equivalent to the loads Each load will have its own resistance R # controlling the size of V # and I # Ohms Law applies R # = V # /I # Resistance at each load </li> <li> Slide 21 </li> <li> Depends on how the loop is created Rules have been established to distinguish between a series circuit, parallel circuit and a mixed circuit. - tomorrows lesson Resistance in the circuit </li> <li> Slide 22 </li> <li> Power Power is defined as the rate at which work is done. P = W/t (1 W = 1J/s) or P = VI (1 W = 1VA) Note: W =E </li> <li> Slide 23 </li> <li> Power in the home Homes use energy, not power. Power rates how fast energy is used. However, because the loads are often listed by their power requirements 60 W light bulbs Electrical companies will measure ones energy use through the KWh instead of J. Therefore, using an appliance for 1 hour might require 1 KWh or 1 KJ. </li> </ul>
