As You Come In… A negative charge is to be placed between a -3.0 C charge and a +8.0 C. Where can the charge be placed, if anywhere, such that it will not move from where it is set?

Challenge: Four-Body Charge Problem Four charges are placed at the corners of a square with sides of 5.0 mm. The top left and bottom right charges have a charge of +3.0 C. What would the charge at the bottom left corner of the square need to be such that the top right charge does not move away? q 1 = +3.0 C q 4 = +3.0 Cq 3 = ? q2q2 x y

Issues With An “N-Charge” Body Problem Impractical to work with discrete amounts of charge Also impractical to have stationary charges Problem: charge math is hard Potential solution: “charge flow” Image courtesy of: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-cjI-QhJpNyM/UnaY61kerSI/AAAAAAAAAOI/tprzGJBcn6I/s1600/Screen+Shot+2013-11-03+at+1.41.21+PM.png

As You Come In… Think about what is needed in order for an electrical device to work. Write as many concepts or ideas as you know about the topic.

Current and Electrons Recall the charge of an electron q e = 1.602 × 10 -19 C This means one electron (1 e - ) has 1.602 × 10 -19 C of charge How many electrons would there be in 1 C of charge? #e - = 6.24 × 10 18 electrons 1 Ampere: 6.24 × 10 18 electrons passing through a point per second

Introduction to Circuits Flowing electrons (current) are EXTREMELY useful to humans Take the form of a circuit Electrical circuit: closed path through which electrical current flows from a voltage source Useful Concepts: Current Voltage Sources And a whole lot more! Stay tuned!

Power Within A Circuit Power = Voltage times Current

Using Power A light bulb is put into a circuit that is connected to a standard U.S. electrical socket. If 1.25 A of current is running through the light bulb, what is the wattage of the light bulb? P = V I

Using Power What amount of current is running through a night-light with a 40 W incandescent light bulb? P = V I
