Ohm’s Law Objective: TSW understand the concepts of Voltage, Current, and Resistance by developing and applying Ohm’s Law.

Circuit simulation

R V 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)

Let’s 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 and V I

Let’s 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). =I V R V and R I A small voltage (V) with a large resistance (R) results in a small current (I). = I V R R and V I V I = R

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

When we talk about electricity we often refer to the quantity power.
Power is the rate at which energy is used. Units: (J/s =Watt) Let’s 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). Check out the units:

The power equation can be combined with Ohm’s Law to give several variations in order calculate the power.

Example 1: A 60W/120V light bulb is connected to a 120V power supply
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.

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

Series Circuit Current is the same. Voltage is split.

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 Ohm’s 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.
