p212c26: 2 Current Flow = net motion of charges = Charge carriers charge q speed v d I = Current = rate at which charge passes the area vdvd I vdvd I Negative charge carriers move in opposite direction of conventional current.

p212c26: 3 Connection with microscopic picture: vdvd E A q Current Density: dQ = charge that passes through A = number that pass through A  charge on each = (n A v d dt) q,n = number density = number/volume (works for negative charge carriers, multiple types of charge carriers as well)

p212c26: 4 Example: 18 gauge copper wire (~1.02 mm in diameter) -constant current of 2A -n = 8.5x10 28 m -3 (property of copper) find J, v d

p212c26: 6  depends upon material E Temperature If  does not depend on E, the material is said to obey “Ohm’s Law” J E slope = 1/  linear response Ohm’s Law J E nonlinear response J E diode nonlinear response direction dependence!

p212c26: 10 Electromotive Force and Circuits Steady current requires a complete circuit path cannot be only resistance cannot be only potential drops in direction of current flow Electromotive Force (EMF) provides increase in potential E converts some external form of energy into electrical energy Single emf and a single resistor: I V = IR E +- V = IR = E

p212c26: 11 Measurements Voltmeters measure Potential Difference (or voltage) across a device by being placed in parallel with the device. V Ammeters measure current through a device by being placed in series with the device. A
