Warm-Up 1. If a tow truck has a mass of 16,000 kg and is accelerating at 5m/s 2 what is its pulling force? F=ma (16000)(5m/s 2) = 80,000 N 2. If the tow truck’s pulley can do 20,000 joules of work in 20 seconds how much power does it have? P= W/T (20000)(20) = 1000 Watts 3. If the same tow truck towed a car 5 km and did 100,000 joules of work how much force is applied? W= FD 100,000= (F) (5) =20000 N
What Makes a Light Bulb Glow? The filament of a light bulb is a very thin wire. When current flows through the wire, electrons collide with metal atoms of the wire. Electrical energy is converted to thermal energy and the bulb becomes hot enough to glow.
Circuit Symbols Current: I – measured in Amperes (A) Voltage Difference: V – measured in Volts (V) Resistance: R Measured in Ohms – ( Ω )
Ohm’s Law Ohm’s Law is the relationship between voltage difference, current, and resistance I = V/R IR V
Ohm’s Law Example: An iron with a resistance of 9.6-Ω is plugged into an electrical outlet with a voltage difference of 120-V. What current flows in the iron? I = V/R I = ? V = 120 R = 9.6 I = 120/9.6 = 12.5-A
Practice Problems 1.How much resistance does a light bulb have if a 2.8 V battery draws.35 A of current? I= V/R.35= 2.8 V / R =.98 Ω 1.What is the voltage needed to provide a 3.2 kΩ resistor with 88.2 mA of current? I=V/R 88.2= V/3.2 kΩ V= 282.24
Series Circuits Series circuits have one loop through which current can flow Example:
Parallel Circuits Parallel Circuits have two or more branches through which current can flow
Parallel Circuits In a parallel circuit: – Voltage difference is the same across all branches – More current flows through branches with lower resistance If one branch of a parallel circuit is cut, energy can still flow down another branch. Example:
Parallel Circuits In your house: Parallel circuits with circuit breakers Circuit breakers have a main breaker in series with many parallel circuits. The parallel circuits each have circuit breakers. When the wires overheat, the circuit breaker switches off the current.
Warm Up What is the voltage in a battery that provides a 50Ω resistor 80mA? How much resistance does a circuit have if 30 A flows through it with a volt difference of 100 V? I= V/R.080A= V/50Ω V= 4 I= V/R 30A= 100V/ I Ω= 3000
Electric Power Electric Power: The rate at which electric energy is converted into another form of energy P = IV Power is measured in Watts Current in Amperes Voltage in Volts Appliances with heating elements usually use more electric power then things that don’t have heat
Example Problem A 1.5 V battery provides 2A to a light bulb. How much power does the light bulb draw? P= VI P= (1.5) (2) P= 3 watts
Electric Power A 9 Volt battery powers a digital clock. The current through the clock is 6.67 Amps. How much power does the clock use? A light bulb uses 60 Watts of Power. It is plugged into a 120 Volt electrical outlet. What current flows through the bulb? P= VI (9) (6.67) P= 60.03 Watts P= VI 60 W= (120 V) (I) I = 0.5 A
Warm Up 1.If a generator has 10 watts of power and can complete 50 J of work. How long would that take in minutes? 2.What is labeled on opposite ends of a magnet?
Magnets Properties of Magnets: – Magnets have magnetic fields, which exert forces on other magnetic materials – Magnets have a north pole and a south pole
Magnetic Fields Magnetic field lines travel from the magnet’s north pole to the south pole Magnetic fields are strongest at the magnet’s poles
Magnetic Domains Electric particles have magnetic properties When different particles align their poles in similar directions, magnets are formed Domains are groups of atoms with particles with aligned magnetic fields
Magnetic Domains Different objects have different natural states of their domains – This determines why a “magnet” is a “magnet” Difference between a nail and a permanent magnet
Permanent v. Induced Domains When a magnetic field is brought close to another non-magnet, the domains line up to the permanent angle
Electromagnets An electric current traveling through a wire produces a magnetic field around the wire An electric current traveling through a coil of wire produces a magnetic field inside the coil. This creates an electromagnet
