1 Ohms Law Objective: TSW understand the concepts of Voltage, Current, and Resistance by developing and applying Ohms Law.

2 Circuit simulation

3 R V I I I I I I I V = Voltage = A potential difference that motivates charge to flow. The pump. (units: V = J/C) I = current = The amount of charge that flows per unit time. (units: C/s = Amps A) R = Resistance = A property of the material that resists the flow of current. (units: Ohms Ω = V/A)

4 Lets learn how these three quantities are related by imaging different Voltages with a constant Resistance. Predict the current with a large voltage and a small resistance: V and R I Predict the current with a small voltage and a large resistance: R andV I

5 Lets come up with an equation for the current (I) that related to the Voltage (V) and Resistance (R): A large voltage (V) with a small resistance (R) results in a large current (I). V and R I A small voltage (V) with a large resistance (R) results in a small current (I). R andV I I = V R = I V R V R

6 This equation can be rearranged to form Ohms Law: Here are some graphs that represent the relationship: V I R I R

7 When we talk about electricity we often refer to the quantity power. Lets define power as it relates to an electrical circuit. The power is large when a large voltage (V) is used to produce a large current flow (I). Power is the rate at which energy is used. Units: (J/s =Watt) Check out the units:

8 The power equation can be combined with Ohms Law to give several variations in order calculate the power.

9 Example 1: A 60W/120V light bulb is connected to a 120V power supply. What is the resistance of the light bulb and the current flowing in the circuit? The same 60W/120V light bulb is connected to a 240V power supply. What will be different from the calculations above? Since resistance is a property of the light bulb it will be the same as above, but the current and power of the bulb will be greater.

10 Circuit Analysis Objective: TSW will apply voltage, current and resistance to predict the behavior of various circuits by completing a VIP chart.

11 Series Circuit Current is the same. Voltage is split. When one bulb goes out, all go out Greatest resistance is the brightest. R s =R 1 +R 2 +R R 2 R 3 24V R1R1 I

14 Parallel Circuit Voltage is the same. Current is split. When one bulb goes out, others stay the same. Least resistance is the brightest 1/R p =1/R 1 +1/R 2 +1/R 3 + … R 1 R 3 12V R 2 I3I3 I2I2 I1I1 I

15 Each resister represents a light bulb. Complete the VIP chart in order to rank the brightness of the bulbs. VIP Batt R1R1 R2R2 R3R3 Parallel Circuit R 1 =5Ω R 3 =10Ω 12V R 2 =2Ω 12V R 1 =5Ω R 3 =10Ω R 2 =2Ω

17 Combined Circuits Map the currents. Currents divide at junctions Find the total resistance. Start with resistors in series. Resistors in series have the same current flowing through them. Resistors in parallel have the same voltage (potential difference) Use Ohms law to find the main current. Use the loop rule to find the voltage (potential difference) across individual resistors. Use proportional thinking to find the current flowing through individual resistors. Complete the VIP chart. Check: The power of individual resistors should always add to the power of the battery.
