1 Chapter 20 Electricity

2 Chapter 20 *Electric charge- property that causes subatomic particles such as protons and electrons to attract or repel each other *Electric charge- property that causes subatomic particles such as protons and electrons to attract or repel each other two types; positive and negative two types; positive and negative An excess or shortage of electrons produces a net electric charge. An excess or shortage of electrons produces a net electric charge. Like charges repel, and opposite charges attract. Like charges repel, and opposite charges attract. *Electric force- the attraction or repulsion between electrically charged objects *Electric force- the attraction or repulsion between electrically charged objects

The strength of an electric field depends on the amount of charge that produces the field and on the distance from the charge. *Static electricity- study of the behavior of electric charges, including the transfer of charges between objects *Static electricity- study of the behavior of electric charges, including the transfer of charges between objects Charge can be transferred by friction, by contact, and by induction. Charge can be transferred by friction, by contact, and by induction.

8 Chapter 20 *Electric current (I)- continuous flow of electric charge; measured in amperes, or amps (A) = 1 C per second *Electric current (I)- continuous flow of electric charge; measured in amperes, or amps (A) = 1 C per second *Electrical conductor- material through which charge can flow easily *Electrical conductor- material through which charge can flow easily *Electrical insulator- material through which charge cannot flow easily *Electrical insulator- material through which charge cannot flow easily

9 Chapter 20 *Resistance (R)- opposition to the flow of charge in a material; measured in ohms *Resistance (R)- opposition to the flow of charge in a material; measured in ohms A materials thickness, length, and temperature affect its resistance. A materials thickness, length, and temperature affect its resistance. More resistance, more heat. More resistance, more heat.

10 Chapter 20 In order for charge to flow in a conducting wire, the wire must be connected in a complete loop that includes a source of electrical energy. In order for charge to flow in a conducting wire, the wire must be connected in a complete loop that includes a source of electrical energy. *Potential difference- difference in electrical potential energy between two places in an electric field; measured in volts (V); considered voltage* *Potential difference- difference in electrical potential energy between two places in an electric field; measured in volts (V); considered voltage*

11 Chapter 20 *Ohms Law- voltage in a circuit equals the product of the current and the resistance *Ohms Law- voltage in a circuit equals the product of the current and the resistance FORMULA (Ohms Law) FORMULA (Ohms Law) V = I · R or I = V V = I · R or I = V R Increasing the voltage increases the current. Keeping the same voltage and increasing the resistance decreases the current. Increasing the voltage increases the current. Keeping the same voltage and increasing the resistance decreases the current.

12 Chapter 20 *Electric circuit- complete path through which charge can flow *Electric circuit- complete path through which charge can flow Circuit diagrams use symbols to represent parts of a circuit, including a source of electrical energy and devices that are run by the electrical energy. Circuit diagrams use symbols to represent parts of a circuit, including a source of electrical energy and devices that are run by the electrical energy. If a switch is open, the circuit is not a complete loop, and current stops. This is an open circuit. If the switch is closed, the circuit is complete and charge can flow, creating a closed circuit. If a switch is open, the circuit is not a complete loop, and current stops. This is an open circuit. If the switch is closed, the circuit is complete and charge can flow, creating a closed circuit.

14 Chapter 20 *Series circuit- charge has only one path through which it can flow. *Series circuit- charge has only one path through which it can flow. If one element stops functioning in a series circuit, none of the elements can operate. If one element stops functioning in a series circuit, none of the elements can operate. *Parallel circuit- electric circuit with two or more paths through which charges can flow. *Parallel circuit- electric circuit with two or more paths through which charges can flow. If one element stops functioning in a parallel circuit, the rest of the elements still can operate. If one element stops functioning in a parallel circuit, the rest of the elements still can operate.

16 Chapter 20 *Electric power- rate at which electrical energy is converted to another form of energy; measured in joules per second, or watts (W) (kW) *Electric power- rate at which electrical energy is converted to another form of energy; measured in joules per second, or watts (W) (kW) Electric power can be calculated by multiplying voltage by current. Electric power can be calculated by multiplying voltage by current. FORMULA (Electric power) FORMULA (Electric power) P = power (W); I = current (A); V = voltage (V) P = power (W); I = current (A); V = voltage (V) P = I · V P = I · V
