H/W 2004 HL Q4

More basic ideas… Another battery means more current as there is a greater push on the electrons The extra resistance from the extra bulb means less current

Current in a series circuit
If the current here is 2 amps… The current here will be… 2A The current here will be… And the current here will be… 2A 2A In other words, the current in a series circuit is THE SAME at any point

Current in a parallel circuit
A PARALLEL circuit is one where the current has a “choice of routes” Here comes the current… Half of the current will go down here (assuming the bulbs are the same)… And the rest will go down here…

Current in a parallel circuit
If the current here is 6 amps And the current here will be… 6A The current here will be… 2A The current here will be… The current here will be… 2A 2A

Voltage in a series circuit
Voltmeter always in parallel V If the voltage across the battery is 6V… …and these bulbs are all identical… V V …what will the voltage across each bulb be? 2V

Voltage in a series circuit
If the voltage across the battery is 6V… V …what will the voltage across two bulbs be? 4V

Voltage in a parallel circuit
If the voltage across the batteries is 4V… What is the voltage here? V 4V And here? V 4V

Summary Current is THE SAME at any point
In a SERIES circuit: Current is THE SAME at any point Voltage SPLITS UP over each component In a PARALLEL circuit: Current SPLITS UP down each “strand” Voltage is THE SAME across each”strand”

An example question: 6V A3 3A A1 V1 A2 V2 V3

There are two main reasons why parallel circuits are used more commonly than series circuits: Extra appliances (like bulbs) can be added without affecting the output of the others 2) When one breaks they don’t all fail

Resistance V R I Resistance = Voltage (in V) (in ) Current (in A)
Georg Simon Ohm Resistance is anything that will RESIST a current. It is measured in Ohms, a unit named after me. That makes me so happy The resistance of a component can be calculated using Ohm’s Law: V R I Resistance = Voltage (in V) (in ) Current (in A)

What is the resistance across this bulb? As R = volts / current = 10/2 = 5 Assuming all the bulbs are the same what is the total resistance in this circuit? Total R = = 15  Voltmeter reads 10V

What is the resistance of these bulbs?

Factors affecting Resistance of a conductor
Resistance depends on Temperature Material of conductor Length Cross-sectional area Temperature The resistance of a metallic conductor increases as the temperature increases e.g. copper The resistance of a semiconductor/insulator decreases as the temperature increases e.g. thermistor.

Factors affecting Resistance of a conductor
Length Resistance of a uniform conductor is directly proportional to its length. i.e. R  L Cross-sectional area Resistance of a uniform conductor is inversely proportional to its cross-sectional area. i.e. R  1 A

Factors affecting Resistance of a conductor
Material The material also affects the resistance of a conductor by a fixed amount for different materials. This is known as resistivity (). R = L  = Resistivity A Unit: ohm meter  m

Micrometer Nichrome wire Crocodile clips l Metre stick Bench clamp Stand

Method 1. Note the resistance of the leads when the crocodile clips are connected together. Could also be precaution. 2. Stretch the wire enough to remove any kinks or ‘slack’ in the wire. 3.Read the resistance of the leads plus the resistance of wire between the crocodile clips from the ohmmeter. Subtract the resistance of the leads to get R. 4.Measure the length l of the wire between the crocodile clips, with the metre stick. 5.Increase the distance between the crocodile clips. Measure the new values of R and l and tabulate the results. 6.Make a note of the zero error on the micrometer. Find the average value of the diameter d.

The National Grid Power station Step up transformer Step down transformer Homes If electricity companies transmitted electricity at 240 volts through overhead power lines there would be too much energy lost by the time electricity reached our homes. This is explained by JOULES LAW

The National Grid Power Transmitted is = P = V.I
Power station Step up transformer Step down transformer Homes Power Transmitted is = P = V.I JOULES LAW gives us the power turned into heat Power Lost = I2R So if we have a high voltage we only need a small current. We loss much less energy

Power loss in Transmission lines
A power company wants to send w of power by a line with a resistance of 12 ohms. If it uses 100A as the current Power transmitted = V . I = V . 100 So V=1000Volts But the loss is from Joules law = I2R = (100)2.12 = watts

Power loss in Transmission lines
If we want the same power but use only 1A as the current Power transmitted = V . I = V . 1 So V=100000Volts But the loss is from Joules law = I2R = (1)2.12 = 12watts 10000 times less!
