2 Electricity and Magnetism The electromagnetic force is what binds electrons to the nuclei of atoms The electromagnetic force is what binds electrons to the nuclei of atoms Responsible for all of chemistry Responsible for all of chemistry When we liberate electrons from individual atoms, we can make them do work for us When we liberate electrons from individual atoms, we can make them do work for us So, the topic is extremely important if we are to understand the world around us So, the topic is extremely important if we are to understand the world around us

3 Electricity and Magnetism Many of the fundamental particles have something we call electric charge Many of the fundamental particles have something we call electric charge We don’t know what this is, we can only describe the results when particles have the property We don’t know what this is, we can only describe the results when particles have the property There are two kinds of charges which we call Positive and Negative There are two kinds of charges which we call Positive and Negative

4 Electricity and Magnetism We observe that like charges repel We observe that like charges repel We observe that unlike charges attract We observe that unlike charges attract The forces are inverse square law forces, just like gravity, but very much more powerful The forces are inverse square law forces, just like gravity, but very much more powerful Atoms have a positive nucleus with surrounding negatively charged electrons Atoms have a positive nucleus with surrounding negatively charged electrons

5 Electricity and Magnetism Each electron in an atom is identical to every other electron so they all have the same mass and the same negative charge Each electron in an atom is identical to every other electron so they all have the same mass and the same negative charge The nucleus is composed of positively charged protons and uncharged neutrons The nucleus is composed of positively charged protons and uncharged neutrons All protons are identical and the charge of the proton is exactly the same size as the charge of the electron, but it is opposite All protons are identical and the charge of the proton is exactly the same size as the charge of the electron, but it is opposite

6 Electricity and Magnetism Normal atoms have identical numbers of protons and electrons Normal atoms have identical numbers of protons and electrons Atoms with a missing electron are called positive ions Atoms with a missing electron are called positive ions Atoms with an extra electron are called negative ions Atoms with an extra electron are called negative ions

10 Electric Field How do things interact with each other when they don’t physically touch? How do things interact with each other when they don’t physically touch? When we talked about gravity, we said that objects appear to experience a force attracting them to each other. When we talked about gravity, we said that objects appear to experience a force attracting them to each other. Place a charged particle in space and it creates an electric field Place a charged particle in space and it creates an electric field Using Coulomb’s Law, we can calculate the force on a test charge at every point in space Using Coulomb’s Law, we can calculate the force on a test charge at every point in space

12 Electric Potential Lift an object into the air and we give it gravitational potential energy Lift an object into the air and we give it gravitational potential energy

13 Electric Potential Separate a positive charge from a negative charge and give it electric potential energy Separate a positive charge from a negative charge and give it electric potential energy

14 Electric Potential Define electric potential as the electric potential energy per unit charge Define electric potential as the electric potential energy per unit charge

15 Voltage Sources If we want to move charge from one place to another, we must apply a force to make it move If we want to move charge from one place to another, we must apply a force to make it move Another way of thinking about this is to say that we must give the charges some potential energy Another way of thinking about this is to say that we must give the charges some potential energy

16 Voltage Sources We can give an object gravitational potential energy by lifting it into the air We can give an object gravitational potential energy by lifting it into the air We have to do work on the object to lift it into the air We have to do work on the object to lift it into the air Doing work uses energy Doing work uses energy Conservation of Energy Conservation of Energy

17 Voltage Sources

18 We need an pump that pumps charges! We need an pump that pumps charges! The simplest charge pump is a battery The simplest charge pump is a battery It uses chemical reactions to separate charges and thus create electrical potential energy It uses chemical reactions to separate charges and thus create electrical potential energy More convenient to talk about PE/charge or electric potential measured in volts More convenient to talk about PE/charge or electric potential measured in volts So, a battery is a kind of electric pump So, a battery is a kind of electric pump

19 Voltage Sources Another kind of source is a generator Another kind of source is a generator A generator converts mechanical energy into electrical energy A generator converts mechanical energy into electrical energy In any case, what we need is a device to separate charges!!! In any case, what we need is a device to separate charges!!!

20 Electric Current The movement of charge is called a current The movement of charge is called a current Metals have some electrons that are not needed to bond the atoms together in the solid Metals have some electrons that are not needed to bond the atoms together in the solid They are pretty free to just roam about the material and are not associated with any individual metal atom They are pretty free to just roam about the material and are not associated with any individual metal atom

21 Electric Current Compare to the flow of water in a hose Compare to the flow of water in a hose

22 Electric Current We measure the flow of water in gallons/minute We measure the flow of water in gallons/minute We measure the flow of charges in coulombs/sec We measure the flow of charges in coulombs/sec 1 coulomb/sec = 1 ampere 1 coulomb/sec = 1 ampere Remember this is 6.25 x electrons moving past a point in a wire per second Remember this is 6.25 x electrons moving past a point in a wire per second

23 Electric Current In a wire, the electrons actually move quite slowly, less than 0.01 meters/sec In a wire, the electrons actually move quite slowly, less than 0.01 meters/sec However, their electric field moves at the speed of light!!! However, their electric field moves at the speed of light!!! So, we can send signals down a wire very quickly, because the information moves at the speed of the changing electric field which is at the speed of light So, we can send signals down a wire very quickly, because the information moves at the speed of the changing electric field which is at the speed of light

24 Electric Current +- Electron flow

25 Electric Current In the 1700’s people figured out that charges could move In the 1700’s people figured out that charges could move They had two choices They had two choices Positive charge moves Positive charge moves Negative charge moves Negative charge moves They guessed WRONG!!!!!
