Kirchhoff’s Laws Slide 23-11

Series and Parallel Circuits
There are two possible ways that you can connect the circuit. Series and parallel circuits have very different properties. We say two bulbs are connected in series if they are connected directly to each other with no junction in between.

Calculating Equivalent Resistance
Slide 22-35

Example Problem A resistor connected to a power supply works as a heater. Which of the following two circuits will provide more power? Answer: The circuit on the left has an equivalent resistance of = 36 Ohms. The power is V^2/R = 81/36. For the circuit on the right, the equivalent resistance is 1/(1/18+1/18) = 1/(1/9) = 9 Ohms, so the power is 81/9. The power is greater for the circuit on the right because the resistance is lower leading to a larger current with the same voltage.

Equivalent Resistance Examples
By using only two resistors singly, in series, or in parallel you are able to obtain resistances of 18.0, 24.0, 72, and 96 . What are the two resistances? (Make sure your answer is consistent.) Find the equivalent resistance of the following circuit: Be sure to show each step. Find the heat energy generated by the 3 Ohm and the 12 Ohm resistors in the circuit in problem 2 Slide 22-35

Equivalent Capacitance
 = RC Slide 23-29

RC Circuits RC circuits are circuits containing resistors and capacitors. In RC circuits, the current varies with time. The values of the resistance and the capacitance in an RC circuit determine the time it takes the capacitor to charge or discharge.

RC Circuit Demonstrations

RC Circuits The figure shows an RC circuit consisting of a charged capacitor, an open switch, and a resistor before the switch closes. The switch will close at t = 0.

RC Circuits

RC Circuits The initial potential difference is (ΔVC)0 = Q0/C.
The initial current—the initial rate at which the capacitor begins to discharge—is

RC Circuits

RC Circuits After some time, both the charge on the capacitor (and thus the potential difference) and the current in the circuit have decreased. When the capacitor voltage has decreased to ΔVC, the current has decreased to The current and the voltage decrease until the capacitor is fully discharged and the current is zero.

RC Circuits The current and the capacitor voltage decay to zero after the switch closes, but not linearly.

RC Circuits The decays of the voltage and the current are exponential decays:

RC Circuits The current and voltage in a circuit do not drop to zero after one time constant. Each increase in time by one time constant causes the voltage and current to decrease by a factor of e−1 = 0.37.

RC Circuits

RC Circuits The time constant has the form τ = RC.
A large resistance opposes the flow of charge, so increasing R increases the decay time. A larger capacitance stores more charge, so increasing C also increases the decay time.

QuickCheck The following circuits contain capacitors that are charged to 5.0 V. All of the switches are closed at the same time. After 1 second has passed, which capacitor is charged to the highest voltage? Answer: C

Charging a Capacitor In a circuit that charges a capacitor, once the switch is closed, the potential difference of the battery causes a current in the circuit, and the capacitor begins to charge. As the capacitor charges, it develops a potential difference that opposes the current, so the current decreases, and so does the rate of charging. The capacitor charges until ΔVC = ℇ.

Charging a Capacitor The equations that describe the capacitor voltage and the current as a function of time are

QuickCheck 23.26 The red curve shows how the capacitor charges after the switch is closed at t = 0. Which curve shows the capacitor charging if the value of the resistor is reduced? B Smaller time constant. Same ultimate amount of charge. © 2015 Pearson Education, Inc.
