How do electrons (charges) flow within a conductor
When electrons travel through, they bump onto the outer electrons or the atoms and energies are given to the conductor.

Ohm’s Law (i) Conductors (導電體) are material which can conduct electricity (傳電). (ii) Electrons (negative charges) or positive charges can go through conductor. (iii) Negative charges give energy to the conductor when they travel through the conductor.

Ohm’s Law (iv) If there is a potential difference across a conductor, a current will flow through the conductor. (v) Ohm discovered (發現) that, in some conductors, the current (I) and the potential difference or voltage (V) across the conductor is directly proportional.

Ohm’s Law (vi) So, his discovery is called Ohm's law.
The proportional constant (the slope) is called the resistance of that material

Ohm’s Law-summary Ohm’s law states that the p.d. across an ohmic conductor is directly proportional to the current through it, provided that the temperature and other physical conditions are constant (the same). The proportional constant is called resistance . A material is called ohmic material if it follows the ohm’s law

HOT questions If the battery of a circuit is exhausted, what will happen to the current in the circuit? __________________________________ What are the possible reasons if the current in a circuit increases? ____________________________________________________________________ The current will decrease and become zero. Either the resistance is lower or the supply source is of higher emf.

Resistors (i)Any conductors which work under Ohm's Law are called resistor. (ii)The proportional constant (正比常數) of voltage and current is called the resistance (電阻值) of that conductor. (iii)Unit of resistance is "Ohm", or W .

Example 5 C of charge passes a resistor in a circuit in 2 s, the total electrical energy dissipated by the charge is 8 J. (i) What is the resistance of the resistor ? V = E / Q = 8 J / 5C = 1.6 V I = Q / t = 5 C /2 s = 2.5 A R = V / I = 1.6 V / 2.5 A = 0.64 W

Example 5 C of charge passes a resistor in a circuit in 2 s, the total electrical energy dissipated by the charge is 8 J. (ii) What is the power dissipation of the resistor ? P = E / t = 8 J / 2 s = 4 W

Revisit of Electric Power
