Energy in electrical circuits
Check the relationship between potential difference, current, time and energy. What equipment would you need? What reading would you take? What formula would you use?

Set up the circuit shown with a 10 β¦ resistor for R.
You need to work in two groups to collect these results Set up the circuit shown with a 10ββ¦ resistor for R. Set the d.c. supply to 10βV. Check that the joulemeter reading increases by 10βJ each second when the current is kept constant at 1βA. Record the current and energy dissipated in the load resistor as a function of time for different supply p.d.s. Replace the 10ββ¦ resistor with a 12βV, 24βW lamp. Adjust the supply to 12βV. Check that the joulemeter reading increases by 24βJ each second when the ammeter displays 2βA. Measure the p.d. across the lamp, the current in it and the energy supplied to it for a period of 10βs for a range of supply p.d.s.

Definitions Potential difference is the electrical energy transferred per unit charge when electrical energy is converted into another form of energy. Potential difference is energy per unit charge. Its unit the volt, is the joule per coulomb. πΌ= π π‘ π= π π‘ π= π π π= π π‘ = ππ π‘ =ππΌ 1 volt = 1 joule per coulomb = 1 watt per ampere

Definitions Electromotive force (e.m.f.) is the energy transferred per unit charge when one other type of energy is converted into electrical energy. π.π.π.= πππππ‘πππππ ππππππ¦ π‘ππππ πππππ πβππππ πΈ= π π This definition tells us two things: That e.m.f. is measured in joules per coulomb That it always deals with the supply of electrical energy 1 volt = 1 joule per coulomb

e.m.f. and p.d. The voltage shown on a cell or β¦β¦β¦β¦ tells you its e.m.f. From this, you can tell the amount of energy given to each β¦β¦β¦β¦β¦β¦β¦ of β¦β¦β¦β¦β¦.. Passing around the circuit, including through the cell itself. In practice the useful p.d. across an appliance is β¦β¦ than the e.m.f. because some voltage is β¦β¦β¦β¦β¦ pushing the β¦β¦β¦β¦β¦β¦. through the cell.
