AL Current Electricity P.66
Current = rate of flow of charge through cross-sectional area I = d Q / d t I = 1 C / 1 s = 1 C s -1 = 1 A One coulomb is the quantity of electric charge for a steady current of 1 ampere flowing through a given point for 1 second.
P.66 Q = I t = area under the curve Q = area = (1/2)(5)(5)+(5)(7-5)+(-4)(10-7) Q = area = 10.5 (C)
P.66 Conductors => mobile electrons, move freely in electrons sea Insulators => no mobile electrons, strictly hold by atoms
P.67 The steady average velocity of the free electrons in the drifting direction or, effectively, in the direction opposite to that of the electric field is known as the drift velocity of the free electrons in the metal. Drift velocity
P.67 Drift velocity Current = Rate of flow of charge I = nAvQ
P.67 Mechanism of electrical conduction in metals Notes: 1. For copper, since the value of the number of free electrons per unit volume (n) is large (10 29 ), the electron drift velocity (v) is rather small. It is less than 1 mm per second. 2. At higher temperatures, the amplitude of vibration of the ions increases and the free electrons collide more frequently with the ions. The drift velocity of the free electrons decreases. Thus, the current decreases.
P.68 Distinction between drift velocity and speed of electrical signal 1. Average random speed: - averaging random speeds in a specific direction - order of magnitude of 10 6 m s Drift velocity: - electrons travels from one end to the other end of a wire - electric field is set up inside - much smaller order of magnitude of m s Electrical signal speed: - speed of electric field - = speed of EM waves (3 x 10 8 m s -1 )

P.69 Conduction electrons collide the lattice ions only due to higher chance.
P.69 Electromotive force (e.m.f.) Electric current from P (higher potential) to Q (lower potential) - until P and Q at same potential
P.69 Electromotive force (e.m.f.) The electromotive force (e.m.f.) of a source is defined as the electrical potential energy supplied to each coulomb of charge by the source to drive the charge around a complete circuit. Unit: volt (1 V = 1 J C -1 )
P.69 Potential difference (p.d.) The potential difference (p.d.) between two points in a circuit is the energy converted from electrical potential energy to other forms when one coulomb of charge passing between the points outside the power source. Unit: J C -1 or volt (V)
P.69 The p.d. between two points in a circuit can also be defined as the ratio of the power dissipated between the two points to the current that flows through the two points.
P.69 Potential difference (p.d.) 1. Definition of volt (1 V) - 1 J of electrical energy is converted to other forms of energy between two points when 1 C of charge flows - power dissipated between two points is 1 W when current flowing is 1 A
P.69 Potential difference (p.d.) 2. Measurement of p.d.: - voltmeter is connected across two points
P.70 Combination of cells 1. In series = 1 + 2 + 3 2. In parallel the equivalent e.m.f. of the system is equal any one of the e.m.f. of cells. =Max( 1, 2, 3 )
P.70 Electrical resistance 1. Definition of resistance - unit: ohm ( ) The ohm (1 Ω) is the resistance of a conductor when a current of one ampere (1 A) flows through the conductor, the potential difference across it is one volt (1 V).
P.70 Current – voltage relation
P.70 Ohm’s Law Ohm’s Law states that the steady current through a metallic conductor is directly proportional to the potential difference across it, provided that the temperature and other physical conditions remain constant. Ohmic conductor - conductor obeys Ohm’s Law (I p.d.)
P.70 Non-ohmic conductor - I-V characteristics are not straight lines Notes: 1. The expression V/I = R is not a representation of Ohm’s Law but a representation of the resistance R. A non-ohmic conductor also has a resistance which can be found using the equation R = V/I but its value is not a constant. 2. Ohm’s Law can be represented by the expression V/I = constant only when the temperature is constant. This implies that at constant temperature, the resistance of an ohmic conductor is independent of the current I or the potential difference V. 3. Therefore, Ohm’s Law is only a special case of resistance behaviour.

P.73 Material Different materials have different conducting properties - resistivity = unit: m
P.73 Effect of temperature on resistance 1. Effect on conductors - In solids, atoms vibrate about their equilibrium positions - temperature increases, amplitude of vibration larger - chance of collision with free electrons higher - resistance higher - current lower
P Temperature coefficient of resistance R - resistance at temperature = R 0 (1 + ) Notes: One of the features of temperature coefficient of resistance is that for many metals its value is close to o C –1, which is the reciprocal of 273 o C.

P.78 R X = 6 2 /12 = 3ΩR Y = 6 2 /3 = 12Ω In order to operate at rated value, both p.d. should be 6V. Besides, the voltage supply is 12V, so each of them should be shared 6V in series connection. X X C. If they are connected in series, current will be the same, but with different resistances will have different voltage. X In parallel connection, the equivalent resistance will be smaller than any one to the resistor in connection. It is possible to reduce the equivalent resistance to 3Ω

P.78 (1) The glass wall of bulb ONLY absorb heat released by the filament, brightness is NOT affected. F F T (2) Power taken by filament should be dominated by the very large resistance of filament, thus less energy is lost in other part of the circuit. (3) The filament emits visible light only when it is very hot. Most of them are infra-red radiation.
P.79 In parallel connection, p.d. is the same. R 2 = 3 R 3 Equivalent resistance in parallel connection P 1 = P 2

P.79 (1) If r > R, then greater p.d. across r than R. T T T The terminal p.d. (ε – I r) = I R will be small. Power loss I 2 r of the battery will be greater. (2) If R > r, V R will be greater. Power loss I 2 R of the resistor will be greater. (3) If R = r, Power supplied by battery will be maximum.
P.80 For maximum power dissipated, Total external R = internal resistance r R + 6 = r It is impossible to have solution R= 0 can have larger power consumption
First Law (Current Law) Kirchhoff’s Laws – find currents flowing in different parts of a network The algebraic sum of the currents at a junction of a circuit is zero. Therefore, the current arriving a junction equals the current leaving the junction. i.e. ΣI = 0 Current +ve – flows into a point -ve – flows out from the point
P.81 Second Law (Voltage Law) (Optional) Round a closed loop, the algebraic sum of the e.m.f.s is equal to the algebraic sum of the products of the current and resistance. i.e. ΣE = Σ (IR)

P.84 For this conversion, a multiplier (high resistance) should be connected in series with the galvanometer to share most of the input voltage. 5 = (100μ)(1k + R M ) 5 = (100μ)(R total ) R total = 50 kΩ

P.86 (1) Some current flowing through the voltmeter, the reading of ammeter is greater than true value. T T F (2) Voltmeter reading is accurate, but the ammeter reading is greater than true value. So, the ratio of V /I is smaller than the true value. (3) If the resistance of R is large and compatible to the internal resistance of voltmeter. The current flowing through the voltmeter is not negligible. The measured value of R is wrong.

P.88 Wheatstone Bridge If P, Q, R are given, Put S into the circuit and the switch is closed If the reading of galvanometer is ZERO, It means that V B = V D By division of voltage, Voltage ratio in ABC = Voltage ratio in ADC
At steady state, the capacitor is fully charged V C = V B – V A No current flowing through capacitor By division of voltage, Q = C(V B – V A ) Q = (20x10 -6 )(4 – 2) Q = 40x10 -6 Q A = -40x10 -6 Lower in potential
P.89 Metre Bridge Metre bridge – simple form of Wheatstone bridge
P.89 Metre Bridge If the reading of galvanometer is ZERO,
P.90 When the bridge is balanced, Notes: When using the metre bridge, certain precautions need to be taken. 1. The value of the standard resistance S need to be chosen such that the balance point B is about in the middle third of the slide wire, i.e. roughly between the 30 cm mark and the 70 cm mark. This is done by trial and error. When the balance point falls in the middle third of the wire, the percentage errors in the measurement of l 1 and l 2 are of the same order.
P.90 Notes: 2. The slider should not be slided on the slide wire so that its uniformity is maintained. 3. The experiment must be repeated with the unknown resistance R in the right-hand gap and the standard resistance S in the left-hand gap. This is to eliminate end errors. A source of end error is the point where the slide wire is soldered to the copper strips. The different amounts of solder used may result in the points of contact having different electrical resistances. Metre bridge – not suitable for low resistance
