© Boardworks Ltd 2003 Resistance State that resistance = p.d./current and understand qualitatively how changes in p.d. or resistance affect current Recall and use the equation R = V/I Describe an experiment to determine resistance using a voltmeter and an ammeter Relate (without calculation) the resistance of a wire to its length and to its diameter
© Boardworks Ltd 2003 Aims Know the relationship between resistance, p.d. and current Recall and use R=V/I Describe an experiment to determine resistance Understand the concept of resistivity Use R=***l/A
© Boardworks Ltd 2003 Resistance Supplement Recall and use quantitatively the proportionality between resistance and length, and the inverse proportionality between resistance and cross-sectional area of a wire
© Boardworks Ltd 2003 How are current and voltage related for a resistor? V A Set up the circuit as shown below: Slowly move the variable resistor and for each setting record the current in amps and the voltage in volts. Plot a graph of your results. P.D. (V) I (A)
© Boardworks Ltd 2003 Ohm’s Law: The current flowing through a wire is proportional to the potential difference (voltage) across it provided the temperature remains constant. Georg Ohm 1826 Current, I / amps Potential difference / V What does proportional mean? Current and voltage If you double the voltage then the current doubles. x x x x x x x x Plot your points on the graph. Draw a line of best fit for your graph. What does your graph look like? If you get a straight line it means that the two quantities current and voltage are proportional. This fact was put into a law:
© Boardworks Ltd 2003 Electron flow and Resistance 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.
© Boardworks Ltd 2003 V=IR We can express Ohm’s Law mathematically using the equation: Voltage = Current x Resistance V=IR Voltage measured in Volts (V) Current measured in Amps (A) Resistance measured in Ohms ( )
© Boardworks Ltd 2003 Formula triangles V I RR x Formula triangles help you to rearrange formula, the triangle for the Ohm’s Law is shown below: Whatever quantity you are trying to find cover it up and it will leave you with the calculation required. So if you were trying to find current, I….. …you would cover I up… …and you are left with the sum… I = V R
