Electricity Part 2: Electric Current

2
Electric current is the amount of charge moving past a point Maxwell Demon counting the charges passing a given point

3
Definition of current I = current Q = amount of charge that passes point. t = time for charge to pass by.

4
Units of Current 1 Ampere (Amp) = 1 Coulomb/second

5
Electric currents only flow in wires. 1.True 2.False

6
Examples of Currents Solar wind interacting with the earths magnetic field

7
1) Coronal Mass Ejection 2) Aurora from space 3) Aurora from ground CME animation Aurora from space Aurora effects

8

9
Tokamak Fusion Experiments JET discharge JET discharge JET discharge

10
We usually think of currents in wires Opening switch Opening switch Opening switch

11
Simple circuit When a charged particle passes through the battery, it gains energy. When the particle passes through the light bulb it gives up the energy as heat.

12
Ohm’s Law V=IR V= Voltage of the Battery. I=current in circuit. R=Resistance in the bulb/resistor. (Depends on materials and geometry.)

13
Units of Resistance R=V/I (volts/amps) By definition, 1Ohm = 1 volt/amp, or 1 =1V/A.

14
Log Ride Analogy

15
Water circuit analogy

16
Example problem How many amps of current would flow in a light bulb that has a resistance of 60 if it is connected to a 12 V battery.

17
Power in a circuit When Charge Q passes through the battery it gains an amount of energy E=( Q)V (This is the amount of work the battery does on the charge.)

18
If the charge takes an amount of time t to pass through the battery, the battery supplies a power of (does work at a rate of)

19
The power supplied by the battery must be dissipated in the resistor. We also know the V=IR. Power dissipated in resistor

20
Which type of light bulb has a larger resistance, a 100W bulb or a 60W bulb? 1.The 100 W bulb 2.The 60 W bulb 3.They will have the same resistance 4.None of the above

21
Example Calculation What is the resistance and how much current flows through a 100 W bulb? Note: The wattage on a bulb is its power output and assumes that you will use it in the US where the voltage in 110 V.

22
Redo the calculations for a 60 W bulb
