Section 1 Electric Charge and Static Electricity
Chapter 17 Bellringer Write a definition for electric charge in your own words in your science journal. When do you experience electric charges most, in winter or in summer? Explain your reasoning.

Section 1 Electric Charge and Static Electricity
Chapter 17 Objectives Describe how charged objects interact by using the law of electric charges. Describe three ways in which an object can become charged. Compare conductors with insulators. Give two examples of static electricity and electric discharge.

Chapter 17 Electric Charge
Section 1 Electric Charge and Static Electricity Chapter 17 Electric Charge Charges Exert Force Atoms are composed of particles with electric charge. The law of electric charges states that like charges repel and opposite charges attract.

Section 1 Electric Charge and Static Electricity Chapter 17 Electric Charge, continued The Force Between Protons and Electrons Because protons and electrons have opposite charges, they are attracted to each other. The Electric Force and the Electric Field The force between charged objects is an electric force. An electric field is the region around a charged object in which an electric force is exerted on another charged object.

Section 1 Electric Charge and Static Electricity
Chapter 17 Charge It! Friction Charging by friction happens when electrons are “wiped” from one object onto another. Conduction Charging by conduction happens when electrons move from one object to another by direct contact. Induction Charging by induction happens when charges in an uncharged metal object are rearranged without direct contact with a charged object.

Chapter 17 Moving Charges
Section 1 Electric Charge and Static Electricity Chapter 17 Moving Charges Conductors An electrical conductor is a material in which charges can move easily. Insulators An electrical insulator is a material in which charges cannot move easily.

Chapter 17 Static Electricity
Section 1 Electric Charge and Static Electricity Chapter 17 Static Electricity Static electricity is the electric charge at rest on an object. Electric Discharge The loss of static electricity as charges move off an object is called electric discharge. One of the most dramatic examples of electric discharge is lightning. The next slide shows how lightning is formed.

Even standing under a tree during a storm is dangerous. Lightning Rods A lightning rod is a pointed rod connected to the ground by a wire. Objects that are joined to Earth by a conductor, such as a wire, are grounded.

Chapter 17 Electric Current
Section 2 Electric Current and Electrical Energy Chapter 17 Electric Current Electric current is the rate at which charges pass through a given point. Electric current is expressed in units called amperes, or amps. Making Charges Move When you flip a switch, an electric field is set up in the wire at the speed of light. The electric field causes the free electrons in the wire to move.

Electric Current, continued
Section 2 Electric Current and Electrical Energy Chapter 17 Electric Current, continued Commanding Electrons to Move This electric field is created so quickly that all electrons start moving through the wire at the same instant. Think of the electric field as a command to the electrons to charge ahead.

Electric Current, continued
Section 2 Electric Current and Electrical Energy Chapter 17 Electric Current, continued AC and DC There are two kinds of electric current—direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC).

Section 2 Electric Current and Electrical Energy
Chapter 17 Voltage Voltage is the potential difference between two points in a circuit. Voltage is expressed in volts (V). Voltage and Energy Voltage is a measure of how much work is needed to move a charge between two points.You can think of voltage as the amount of energy released as a charge moves between two points in the path of a current.

Chapter 17 Voltage, continued
Section 2 Electric Current and Electrical Energy Chapter 17 Voltage, continued Voltage and Electric Current As long as there is a voltage between two points on a wire, charges will flow in the wire. The size of the current depends on the voltage. Varying Nature of Voltage Different devices need different levels of voltage.

Section 2 Electric Current and Electrical Energy
Chapter 17 Resistance Resistance is the opposition to the flow of electric charge. Resistance and Material Good conductors, such as copper, have low resistance. Poor conductors, such as iron, have higher resistance. Resistance, Thickness, and Length Thick, short wires have less resistance than thin, long wires.

Chapter 17 Section 3 Electrical Calculations Bellringer How fast is a nanosecond? A nanosecond (ns) is one-billionth of a second. Electrical signals travel at 30 cm/ns. Calculate how far electrical signals travel in 1 second. Record your answers in your science journal.

Chapter 17 Section 3 Electrical Calculations Objectives Use Ohm’s law to calculate voltage, current, and resistance. Calculate electric power. Determine the electrical energy used by a device. Compare the power ratings of different electrical appliances.

Connecting Current, Voltage, and Resistance
Chapter 17 Section 3 Electrical Calculations Connecting Current, Voltage, and Resistance Georg Ohm (1789 –1854) studied the resistances of materials. He measured the current that resulted from different voltages applied to a piece of metal wire. Ohm’s Law Ohm found that the ratio of voltage to current is a constant for each material. This ratio is the resistance of the material. R = V I , or V =

Chapter 17 Electric Power
Section 3 Electrical Calculations Electric Power What Is Electric Power? The rate at which electrical energy is changed into other forms of energy is electric power. Electric power is calculated using the following equation: power  voltage  current, or P  V  I Watt: The Unit of Power The unit for power is the watt (W). Another common unit of power is the kilowatt (kW). One kilowatt is equal to 1,000 W.

Electric Power, continued
Chapter 17 Section 3 Electrical Calculations Electric Power, continued Power Ratings When you read the wattage label on a light bulb, you are reading the bulb’s power rating. The power rating describes the rate at which an electric device uses electrical energy.

Measuring Electrical Energy
Chapter 17 Section 3 Electrical Calculations Measuring Electrical Energy The amount of electrical energy used in a home depends the power of the electrical devices in the house and the length of the time that those devices are on. The equation for electrical energy is as follows: electrical energy  power  time, or E  P  t

Electric companies usually calculate electrical energy by multiplying the power in kilowatts by the time in hours. How to Save Energy Every appliance uses energy. Replacing items that have high power ratings with items that have lower ratings is a way to save energy.

Chapter 17 Section 3 Electrical Calculations Measuring Electrical Energy, continued It’s All About the Bulb All of the lighting in a home could make up as much as 25% of a home’s energy consumption. So, buying and using energy–efficient light bulbs can make a big difference in the amount of energy used by a household. Energy–Saving Programs Many governments and organizations around the world have started programs to help save energy and natural resources.

Uses for Series Circuits Series circuits are useful in wiring burglar alarms. If any part of the circuit fails, there will be no current in the system and the alarm will sound.

Uses for Parallel Circuits Almost all appliances are built with parallel circuits so that they will keep working if part of the system fails.

Household Circuit Safety
Chapter 17 Section 4 Electric Circuits Household Circuit Safety Circuit Failure Broken wires or water can cause a short circuit. In a short circuit, charges do not go through one or more loads in the circuit. Fuses A fuse has a thin strip of metal. Fuses keep charges from flowing if the current is too high.
