One Thing at a Time Series Circuits

Definitions series circuit – a circuit in which two or more elements are connected end-to-end so that a single loop of current is formed.

Series Circuit Rules equivalent Resistance – more resistors = more resistance Req = R1 + R2 + … current – same throughout circuit I = I1 = I2 = … voltage – voltages add up V = V1 + V2 + … All circuit components and the circuit as a whole must obey Ohm’s Law

Current Since there is only one current path in a series circuit, the current is the same through each resistor. ______________________ Ibattery = I1 = I2 = I3 = .. Charge flows together through the external circuit at a rate which is everywhere the same. The current is no greater at one location as it is at another location.

Equivalent Resistance
The equivalent resistance of a circuit is the amount of resistance which a single resistor would need in order to equal the overall affect of the collection of resistors which are present in the circuit. The equivalent resistance in a series circuit is the sum of the circuit’s resistances: ____________________________________ Req = R1 + R2 + R

Potential Difference and Voltage Drops
The sum of the potential differences across the individual resistors equals the applied potential difference at the terminals. _______________________________ ∆Vbattery = ∆V1 + ∆V2 + ∆V

Mathematical Analysis of Series Circuits
Ibattery= I1 = I2 = I3 = ... Req = R1 + R2 + R Vbattery =  V1 +  V2 +  V All COMPONENTS and the WHOLE CIRCUIT obey Ohm’s Law V1 V1 = I • R1     V2 = I • R2     V3 = I • R3 V2 V3

objectives Be able to Sketch diagrams of parallel circuits including proper placement of meters. VIR charts and Ohm’s Law to solve parallel circuits problems. Determine the power or electrical energy used by a circuit component or an entire circuit. Determine the effect of adding or removing resistors to the rest of a circuit.

Wiring for Voltage Parallel Circuits

Definitions parallel circuit – a circuit in which two or more elements are connected so that each has its own current loop. More current flows through the smaller resistor. (More charges take the easiest path.) The potential difference of different resistors are the same, they all have the same drop. By the time each charge makes it back to the battery, it has lost all the electrical energy given to it by the battery.

Parallel Circuit Rules
equivalent Resistance – more resistors = less resistance 1/Req = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + … current – currents add up I = I1 + I2 + … voltage – voltages same for each resistor V = V1 = V2 = … All circuit components and the circuit as a whole must obey Ohm’s Law

Current Itotal = I1 + I2 + I3 + ...
In a parallel circuit, charge divides up into separate branches such that there can be more current in one branch than there is in another. Nonetheless, when taken as a whole, the total amount of current in all the branches when added together is the same as the amount of current at locations outside the branches. Itotal = I1 + I2 + I

Junction Rule The total current flowing into and out of a junction must be the same 10 A 6.0 A ? 4.0 A

Junction Rule 6.0 A 10 A 6.0 A ? ? 4.0 A 2.0 A

Example 1 The diagram shows the current in three of the branches of a direct current electric circuit. The current in the fourth branch, between junction P and point W, must be 1 A toward point W 1 A toward point P 7 A toward point W 7 A toward point P

Example 2 The diagram shows a current in a segment of a direct current circuit.  What is the reading of ammeter A?

Equivalent Resistance
The equivalent resistance (total resistance) of a circuit is the amount of resistance which a single resistor would need in order to equal the overall effect of the collection of resistors which are present in the circuit. For parallel circuits, the mathematical formula for computing the equivalent resistance (Req) is where R1, R2, and R3 are the resistance values of the individual resistors which are connected in parallel.

For parallel circuit, adding more resistors you add the less resistance you have.

Example 3 – determine equivalent R
Regents Physics - Current Electricity Notes Example 3 – determine equivalent R Note: the equivalent resistance is less than any single resistance in the circuit.

Example 4 Resistors R1 and R2 have an equivalent resistance of 6 ohms when connected as shown.  What is the resistance of R1? 3 ohms 4 ohms 5 ohms 8 ohms Since the equivalent resistance is smaller than any single resistance in the parallel circuit, the answer is 8 ohms

Example 5 Resistors R1 and R2 have the same resistance. When they are connected together as shown, they have an equivalent resistance of 4 ohms.  What is the resistance of R1? Since R1 = R2 1/4 Ω = 1/R1 + 1/R1 = 2/R1 R1 = 8 Ω Note: the individual resistance is bigger than the total resistance in the parallel circuit.

Voltage Drops for Parallel Branches
The total voltage drop in the external circuit is equal to the gain in voltage as a charge passes through the internal circuit. In a parallel circuit, a charge does not pass through every resistor; rather, it passes through a single resistor. Thus, the entire voltage drop across that resistor must match the battery voltage. It matters not whether the charge passes through resistor 1, resistor 2, or resistor 3, the voltage drop across the resistor which it chooses to pass through must equal the voltage of the battery. Put in equation form, this principle would be expressed as Vbattery = V1 = V2 = V3 = ..

All COMPONENTS and the WHOLE CIRCUIT obey Ohm’s Law
I1 = V / R1 I2 = V / R2 I3 = V / R3

R1 = 30 Ω R2 = 30 Ω R3 = 30 Ω 60 V V (V) I (A) R (Ω) R1 R2 R3 Req 60 2.0 30 60 2.0 30 60 2.0 30 60 6.0 10

R1 = 20 Ω R2 = 50 Ω R3 = 10 Ω 0.5 A V (V) I (A) R (Ω) R1 R2 R3 Req 5.0 0.25 20 5.0 0.1 50 5.0 0.5 10 5.0 0.85 5.9
