1 Electricity in wires is a flow of electrons along the wire. As the electrons move along the wire they collide with the metal atoms. These collision make the atoms vibrate more…which makes the metal hotter. Resistance is a measure of how much a material tries to stop electricity passing through it. 4.3 Resistance

2 R (ohm) = V (volt) I (amp) Resistance (R) of a component = p.d across component (V) the current through it (I) Electrical resistance is the opposition to the flow of electrons. It is caused by the repeated collisions between charge carriers and fixed positive ions in a metal conductor

3 Ohm’s law: The pd across a metallic conductor is proportional to the current through it, provided the physical conditions do not change Q. For the resistor opposite calculate: a) the resistance at this current b) the new pd when the current is 50 micro Amp 12V 2mA R ohm a) R = V = I 4.3 Resistance

4 Ohm’s law: The pd across a metallic conductor is proportional to the current through it, provided the physical conditions do not change Q. For the resistor opposite calculate: a) the resistance at this current b) the new pd when the current is 50 micro Amp 12V 2mA R ohm a) R = V = 12 = 6000 Ohm I 2.0 x 10 -3 4.3 Resistance
