Electric current and direct-current circuits A flow of electric charge is called an electric current.

Electric current and direct-current circuits

4
When electric charge flows through a closed path and returns to its starting point the path is called an electric circuit.

5
Electric current and direct-current circuits When electric charge flows through a closed path in one direction the path is called a direct-current circuit.

6
Electric current and direct-current circuits When electric charge flows through a closed path and periodically reverses direction the path is called a alternating-current circuit.

7
Electric current and direct-current circuits A battery produces a difference in electric potential between its terminals through chemical reactions.

9
Electric current and direct-current circuits The terminal designated + corresponds to the higher potential, while the terminal designated by a – corresponds to the lower potential.

10
Electric current and direct-current circuits By convention we say that the direction of the current is the direction in which a positive charge would move.

12
Electric current and direct-current circuits The electromotive force (emf) (ξ) is the potential across the terminals (voltage) of a battery under ideal conditions.

Electric current and direct-current circuits The charges that actually move through a conductor, are electrons.

14
Electric current and direct-current circuits In a real conductor there is always some resistance to electron flow, and a potential difference is necessary to keep them flowing.

36
Electric current and direct-current circuits For circuits that contain resistors connected both in series and in parallel, we first calculate the equivalent resistances.

37
Electric current and direct-current circuits We then treat the result as if it were just another resistor in series. Ex.21-7 on page 693.

Electric current and direct-current circuits Kirchoff’s rules 1. The sum of the currents entering a junction, must equal the sum of the currents leaving that junction (result of charge conservation).

50
Electric current and direct-current circuits Kirchoff’s rules 2. The algebraic sum of the potential differences around a closed loop is zero. The potential increases in going from the negative to the positive terminal of a battery, and decreases when crossing a resistor in the direction of the current. (energy conservation).

51
Electric current and direct-current circuits Batteries – all non-ideal batteries have an internal resistance. The voltage measured across the terminals of a battery will be less with current flowing than without current flowing.
