January 26, — 8: When you cross a resistor in the same direction as the current, that's also a drop in potential so it's a negative change in potential. The pipe is narrower at one spot than along the rest of the pipe. We'll move from the qualitative investigation of induced emf to the quantitative picture.

From our Word of the Year announcement: Sign up for our Newsletter! Start your day with weird words, fun quizzes, and language stories. It does add up, though. The following equation gives the total cost of operating something electrical:. Try this at home - figure out the monthly cost of using a particular appliance you use every day. Possibilities include hair dryers, microwaves, TV's, etc.

The power rating of an appliance like a TV is usually written on the back, and if it doesn't give the power it should give the current. Anything you plug into a wall socket runs at V, so if you know that and the current you can figure out how much power it uses.

The cost for power that comes from a wall socket is relatively cheap. On the other hand, the cost of battery power is much higher. Although power is cheap, it is not limitless. Electricity use continues to increase, so it is important to use energy more efficiently to offset consumption. Appliances that use energy most efficiently sometimes cost more but in the long run, when the energy savings are accounted for, they can end up being the cheaper alternative.

A battery produces direct current; the battery voltage or emf is constant, which generally results in a constant current flowing one way around a circuit. If the circuit has capacitors, which store charge, the current may not be constant, but it will still flow in one direction. The current that comes from a wall socket, on the other hand, is alternating current. With alternating current, the current continually changes direction.

This is because the voltage emf is following a sine wave oscillation. For a wall socket in North America, the voltage changes from positive to negative and back again 60 times each second. You might think this value of V should really be - volts. That's actually a kind of average of the voltage, but the peak really is about V. This oscillating voltage produces an oscillating electric field; the electrons respond to this oscillating field and oscillate back and forth, producing an oscillating current in the circuit.

The graph above shows voltage as a function of time, but it could just as well show current as a function of time: This average value we use for the voltage from a wall socket is known as the root mean square, or rms, average. Because the voltage varies sinusoidally, with as much positive as negative, doing a straight average would get you zero for the average voltage. The rms value, however, is obtained in this way:. Here's an example, using the four numbers -1, 1, 3, and 5. To find the rms average, you square everything to get 1, 1, 9, and Finally, take the square root to get 3.

The average is 2, but the rms average is 3. Doing this for a sine wave gets you an rms average that is the peak value of the sine wave divided by the square root of two. This is the same as multiplying by 0. In North America, the rms voltage is about volts. If you need to know about the average power used, it is the rms values that go into the calculation.

A series circuit is a circuit in which resistors are arranged in a chain, so the current has only one path to take. The current is the same through each resistor. The total resistance of the circuit is found by simply adding up the resistance values of the individual resistors:.

A series circuit is shown in the diagram above. The current flows through each resistor in turn. If the values of the three resistors are:. The current through each resistor would be 0. A parallel circuit is a circuit in which the resistors are arranged with their heads connected together, and their tails connected together.

The current in a parallel circuit breaks up, with some flowing along each parallel branch and re-combining when the branches meet again. The voltage across each resistor in parallel is the same. The total resistance of a set of resistors in parallel is found by adding up the reciprocals of the resistance values, and then taking the reciprocal of the total:. A parallel circuit is shown in the diagram above. In this case the current supplied by the battery splits up, and the amount going through each resistor depends on the resistance.

The voltage across each resistor is 10 V, so:. If the resistors in parallel are identical, it can be very easy to work out the equivalent resistance. In this case the equivalent resistance of N identical resistors is the resistance of one resistor divided by N, the number of resistors.

So, two ohm resistors in parallel are equivalent to one ohm resistor; five ohm resistors in parallel are equivalent to one ohm resistor, etc. Here's a way to check your answer.

If you have two or more resistors in parallel, look for the one with the smallest resistance. The equivalent resistance will always be between the smallest resistance divided by the number of resistors, and the smallest resistance. You have three resistors in parallel, with values 6 ohms, 9 ohms, and 18 ohms. Many circuits have a combination of series and parallel resistors. Generally, the total resistance in a circuit like this is found by reducing the different series and parallel combinations step-by-step to end up with a single equivalent resistance for the circuit.

This allows the current to be determined easily. The current flowing through each resistor can then be found by undoing the reduction process. Two or more resistors with their heads directly connected together and their tails directly connected together are in parallel, and they can be reduced to one resistor using the equivalent resistance equation for resistors in parallel. Two resistors connected together so that the tail of one is connected to the head of the next, with no other path for the current to take along the line connecting them, are in series and can be reduced to one equivalent resistor.

Finally, remember that for resistors in series, the current is the same for each resistor, and for resistors in parallel, the voltage is the same for each one. In discussing gravitational potential energy in PY, we usually associated it with a single object. An object near the surface of the Earth has a potential energy because of its gravitational interaction with the Earth; potential energy is really not associated with a single object, it comes from an interaction between objects.

Similarly, there is an electric potential energy associated with interacting charges. For each pair of interacting charges, the potential energy is given by:. Energy is a scalar, not a vector. To find the total electric potential energy associated with a set of charges, simply add up the energy which may be positive or negative associated with each pair of charges.

An object near the surface of the Earth experiences a nearly uniform gravitational field with a magnitude of g; its gravitational potential energy is mgh. A charge in a uniform electric field E has an electric potential energy which is given by qEd, where d is the distance moved along or opposite to the direction of the field.

If the charge moves in the same direction as the force it experiences, it is losing potential energy; if it moves opposite to the direction of the force, it is gaining potential energy.

The relationship between work, kinetic energy, and potential energy, which was discussed in PY, still applies:. Two positively-charged balls are tied together by a string. One ball has a mass of 30 g and a charge of 1 ; the other has a mass of 40 g and a charge of 2. The distance between them is 5 cm. The ball with the smaller charge has a mass of 30 g; the other ball has a mass of 40 g.

Initially they are at rest, but when the string is cut they move apart. When they are a long way away from each other, how fast are they going? Let's start by looking at energy. No external forces act on this system of two charges, so the energy must be conserved. To start with all the energy is potential energy; this will be converted into kinetic energy. Energy at the start: When the balls are very far apart, the r in the equation for potential energy will be large, making the potential energy negligibly small.

Energy is conserved, so the kinetic energy at the end is equal to the potential energy at the start:. The masses are known, but the two velocities are not. To solve for the velocities, we need another relationship between them. Because no external forces act on the system, momentum will also be conserved. Before the string is cut, the momentum is zero, so the momentum has to be zero all the way along. The momentum of one ball must be equal and opposite to the momentum of the other, so:.

Electric potential is more commonly known as voltage. The potential at a point a distance r from a charge Q is given by:. Potential plays the same role for charge that pressure does for fluids. If there is a pressure difference between two ends of a pipe filled with fluid, the fluid will flow from the high pressure end towards the lower pressure end.

Charges respond to differences in potential in a similar way. Electric potential is a measure of the potential energy per unit charge. If you know the potential at a point, and you then place a charge at that point, the potential energy associated with that charge in that potential is simply the charge multiplied by the potential. Electric potential, like potential energy, is a scalar, not a vector.

Equipotential lines are connected lines of the same potential. These often appear on field line diagrams. Equipotential lines are always perpendicular to field lines, and therefore perpendicular to the force experienced by a charge in the field. If a charge moves along an equipotential line, no work is done; if a charge moves between equipotential lines, work is done. Field lines and equipotential lines for a point charge, and for a constant field between two charged plates, are shown below:.

Note that the Bohr model, the idea of electrons as tiny balls orbiting the nucleus, is not a very good model of the atom. A better picture is one in which the electron is spread out around the nucleus in a cloud of varying density; however, the Bohr model does give the right answer for the ionization energy, the energy required to remove the electron from the atom. The total energy is the sum of the electron's kinetic energy and the potential energy coming from the electron-proton interaction.

This can be found by analyzing the force on the electron. This force is the Coulomb force; because the electron travels in a circular orbit, the acceleration will be the centripetal acceleration:.

Note that the negative sign coming from the charge on the electron has been incorporated into the direction of the force in the equation above. Note that the potential energy is twice as big as the kinetic energy, but negative.

This relationship between the kinetic and potential energies is valid not just for electrons orbiting protons, but also in gravitational situations, such as a satellite orbiting the Earth. The total energy is: This works out to This is usually stated in energy units of electron volts eV. An eV is 1. To remove the electron from the atom, Probably everyone is familiar with the first three concepts, but what does it mean for charge to be quantized? Charge comes in multiples of an indivisible unit of charge, represented by the letter e.

In other words, charge comes in multiples of the charge on the electron or the proton. These things have the same size charge, but the sign is different. Electrons and protons are not the only things that carry charge. Other particles positrons, for example also carry charge in multiples of the electronic charge. Those are not going to be discussed, for the most part, in this course, however. The Law of conservation of charge states that the net charge of an isolated system remains constant.

Forces between two electrically-charged objects can be extremely large. Most things are electrically neutral; they have equal amounts of positive and negative charge. We also have a lot of control over how things get charged. This is because we can choose the appropriate material to use in a given situation. Metals are good conductors of electric charge, while plastics, wood, and rubber are not. Charge does not flow nearly as easily through insulators as it does through conductors, which is why wires you plug into a wall socket are covered with a protective rubber coating.

Charge flows along the wire, but not through the coating to you. Materials are divided into three categories, depending on how easily they will allow charge i. Most materials are either conductors or insulators.

In insulators, on the other hand, the electrons are much more tightly bound to the atoms, and are not free to flow. Semi-conductors are a very useful intermediate class, not as conductive as metals but considerably more conductive than insulators. By adding certain impurities to semi-conductors in the appropriate concentrations the conductivity can be well-controlled. Charging by friction - this is useful for charging insulators. If you rub one material with another say, a plastic ruler with a piece of paper towel , electrons have a tendency to be transferred from one material to the other.

For example, rubbing glass with silk or saran wrap generally leaves the glass with a positive charge; rubbing PVC rod with fur generally gives the rod a negative charge. Charging by conduction - useful for charging metals and other conductors. If a charged object touches a conductor, some charge will be transferred between the object and the conductor, charging the conductor with the same sign as the charge on the object.

Charging by induction - also useful for charging metals and other conductors. Again, a charged object is used, but this time it is only brought close to the conductor, and does not touch it. If the conductor is connected to ground ground is basically anything neutral that can give up electrons to, or take electrons from, an object , electrons will either flow on to it or away from it. When the ground connection is removed , the conductor will have a charge opposite in sign to that of the charged object.

An example of induction using a negatively charged object and an initially-uncharged conductor for example, a metal ball on a plastic handle. Electrons on the conductor will be repelled from the area nearest the charged object. The electrons on the conductor want to get as far away from the negatively-charged object as possible, so some of them flow to ground. A practical application involving the transfer of charge is in how laser printers and photocopiers work.

You notice static electricity much more in winter with clothes in a dryer, or taking a sweater off, or getting a shock when you touch something after walking on carpet than in summer because the air is much drier in winter than summer. Dry air is a relatively good electrical insulator, so if something is charged the charge tends to stay. In more humid conditions, such as you find on a typical summer day, water molecules, which are polarized, can quickly remove charge from a charged object.

See if you can charge something at home using friction. I got good results by rubbing a Bic pen with a piece of paper towel. To test the charge, you can use a narrow stream of water from a faucet; if the object attracts the stream when it's brought close, you know it's charged. All you need to do is to find something to rub - try anything made out of hard plastic or rubber.

You also need to find something to rub the object with - potential candidates are things like paper towel, wool, silk, and saran wrap or other plastic.

Remember that force is a vector, so when more than one charge exerts a force on another charge, the net force on that charge is the vector sum of the individual forces. Remember, too, that charges of the same sign exert repulsive forces on one another, while charges of opposite sign attract.

Four charges are arranged in a square with sides of length 2. The charges in the other two corners are What is the net force exerted on the charge in the top right corner by the other three charges? To solve any problem like this, the simplest thing to do is to draw a good diagram showing the forces acting on the charge.

You should also let your diagram handle your signs for you. Force is a vector, and any time you have a minus sign associated with a vector all it does is tell you about the direction of the vector. If you have the arrows giving you the direction on your diagram, you can just drop any signs that come out of the equation for Coulomb's law.

You have to be very careful to add these forces as vectors to get the net force. In this problem we can take advantage of the symmetry, and combine the forces from charges 2 and 4 into a force along the diagonal opposite to the force from charge 3 of magnitude When this is combined with the The symmetry here makes things a little easier.

If it wasn't so symmetric, all you'd have to do is split the vectors up in to x and y components, add them to find the x and y components of the net force, and then calculate the magnitude and direction of the net force from the components. Example in the textbook shows this process. An electric field describes how an electric charge affects the region around it. It's a powerful concept, because it allows you to determine ahead of time how a charge will be affected if it is brought into the region.

Many people have trouble with the concept of a field, though, because it's something that's hard to get a real feel for. The fact is, though, that you're already familiar with a field. We've talked about gravity, and we've even used a gravitational field; we just didn't call it a field.

When talking about gravity, we got into the probably bad habit of calling g "the acceleration due to gravity". It's more accurate to call g the gravitational field produced by the Earth at the surface of the Earth. If you understand gravity you can understand electric forces and fields because the equations that govern both have the same form. The gravitational force between two masses m and M separated by a distance r is given by Newton's law of universal gravitation:.

A similar equation applies to the force between two charges q and Q separated by a distance r:. The force equations are similar, so the behavior of interacting masses is similar to that of interacting charges, and similar analysis methods can be used. The main difference is that gravitational forces are always attractive, while electrostatic forces can be attractive or repulsive. The charge q or Q plays the same role in the electrostatic case that the mass m or M plays in the case of the gravity.

A good example of a question involving two interacting masses is a projectile motion problem, where there is one mass m, the projectile, interacting with a much larger mass M, the Earth. If we throw the projectile at some random launch angle off a meter-high cliff, the force on the projectile is given by:.

This is the same equation as the more complicated equation above, with G, M, and the radius of the Earth, squared, incorporated into g, the gravitational field. So, you've seen a field before, in the form of g. Electric fields operate in a similar way.

An equivalent electrostatics problem is to launch a charge q again, at some random angle into a uniform electric field E, as we did for m in the Earth's gravitational field g. We can extend the parallel between gravity and electrostatics to energy, but we'll deal with that later. The bottom line is that if you can do projectile motion questions using gravity, you should be able to do them using electrostatics.

To help visualize how a charge, or a collection of charges, influences the region around it, the concept of an electric field is used. The electric field E is analogous to g, which we called the acceleration due to gravity but which is really the gravitational field.

Everything we learned about gravity, and how masses respond to gravitational forces, can help us understand how electric charges respond to electric forces. The electric field from a positive charge points away from the charge; the electric field from a negative charge points toward the charge.

Like the electric force, the electric field E is a vector. If the electric field at a particular point is known, the force a charge q experiences when it is placed at that point is given by:. If q is positive, the force is in the same direction as the field; if q is negative, the force is in the opposite direction as the field. Right now you are experiencing a uniform gravitational field: If you threw a mass through the air, you know it would follow a parabolic path because of gravity.

You could determine when and where the object would land by doing a projectile motion analysis, separating everything into x and y components. The horizontal acceleration is zero, and the vertical acceleration is g.

You can do the same thing with charges in a uniform electric field. If you throw a charge into a uniform electric field same magnitude and direction everywhere , it would also follow a parabolic path.

We're going to neglect gravity; the parabola comes from the constant force experienced by the charge in the electric field. Again, you could determine when and where the charge would land by doing a projectile motion analysis.

The acceleration is again zero in one direction and constant in the other. Is it valid to neglect gravity? Gravity is very easy to account for, of course: The one big difference between gravity and electricity is that m, the mass, is always positive, while q, the charge, can be positive, zero, or negative.

An electric field can be visualized on paper by drawing lines of force, which give an indication of both the size and the strength of the field. Lines of force are also called field lines. Field lines start on positive charges and end on negative charges, and the direction of the field line at a point tells you what direction the force experienced by a charge will be if the charge is placed at that point.

If the charge is positive, it will experience a force in the same direction as the field; if it is negative the force will be opposite to the field. When there is more than one charge in a region, the electric field lines will not be straight lines; they will curve in response to the different charges. In every case, though, the field is highest where the field lines are close together, and decreases as the lines get further apart.

Two charges are placed on the x axis. Where on the x axis is the electric field equal to zero? This question involves an important concept that we haven't discussed yet: To find the places where the field is zero, simply add the field from the first charge to that of the second charge and see where they cancel each other out. The field from the -2Q charge is always larger, though, because the charge is bigger and closer, so the fields can't cancel.

This corresponds to 2. The other point is between the charges. It corresponds to the point where the fields from the two charges have the same magnitude, but they both point in the same direction there so they don't cancel out. A conductor is in electrostatic equilibrium when the charge distribution the way the charge is distributed over the conductor is fixed.

Basically, when you charge a conductor the charge spreads itself out. At equilibrium, the charge and electric field follow these guidelines:. Let's see if we can explain these things. Consider a negatively-charged conductor; in other words, a conductor with an excess of electrons. The excess electrons repel each other, so they want to get as far away from each other as possible. To do this they move to the surface of the conductor. They also distribute themselves so the electric field inside the conductor is zero.

If the field wasn't zero, any electrons that are free to move would. There are plenty of free electrons inside the conductor they're the ones that are canceling out the positive charge from all the protons and they don't move, so the field must be zero. A similar argument explains why the field at the surface of the conductor is perpendicular to the surface. If it wasn't, there would be a component of the field along the surface.

A charge experiencing that field would move along the surface in response to that field, which is inconsistent with the conductor being in equilibrium. Why does charge pile up at the pointy ends of a conductor? Consider two conductors, one in the shape of a circle and one in the shape of a line. Charges are distributed uniformly along both conductors.

With the circular shape, each charge has no net force on it, because there is the same amount of charge on either side of it and it is uniformly distributed. The circular conductor is in equilibrium, as far as its charge distribution is concerned. With the line, on the other hand, a uniform distribution does not correspond to equilbrium.

If you look at the second charge from the left on the line, for example, there is just one charge to its left and several on the right. This charge would experience a force to the left, pushing it down towards the end. For charge distributed along a line, the equilibrium distribution would look more like this:. A clever way to calculate the electric field from a charged conductor is to use Gauss' Law, which is explained in Appendix D in the textbook.

Gauss' Law can be tricky to apply, though, so we won't get into that. What we will do is to look at some implications of Gauss' Law. It's also a good time to introduce the concept of flux. This is important for deriving electric fields with Gauss' Law, which you will NOT be responsible for; where it'll really help us out is when we get to magnetism, when we do magnetic flux.

Electric flux is a measure of the number of electric field lines passing through an area. To calculate the flux through a particular surface, multiply the surface area by the component of the electric field perpendicular to the surface. If the electric field is parallel to the surface, no field lines pass through the surface and the flux will be zero.

The maximum flux occurs when the field is perpendicular to the surface. Gauss' Law - the sum of the electric flux through a surface is equal to the charge enclosed by a surface divided by a constant , the permittivity of free space.

What is the permittivity of free space? It's a constant related to the constant k that appears in Coulomb's law. The relationship between the two is this:.

Gauss' Law is a powerful method of calculating electric fields. If you have a solid conducting sphere e. Gauss' law tells us that the electric field inside the sphere is zero, and the electric field outside the sphere is the same as the field from a point charge with a net charge of Q. That's a pretty neat result. The result for the sphere applies whether it's solid or hollow. Let's look at the hollow sphere, and make it more interesting by adding a point charge at the center.

What does the electric field look like around this charge inside the hollow sphere? How is the negative charge distributed on the hollow sphere? To find the answers, keep these things in mind:. Because the charge is positive, the field points away from the charge. The net electric field with the point charge and the charged sphere, then, is the sum of the fields from the point charge alone and from the sphere alone except inside the solid part of the sphere, where the field must be zero.

This is shown in the picture:. How is the charge distributed on the sphere? The electrons must distribute themselves so the field is zero in the solid part. Direct current DC circuits involve current flowing in one direction. In alternating current AC circuits, instead of a constant voltage supplied by a battery, the voltage oscillates in a sine wave pattern, varying with time as:.

In a household circuit, the frequency is 60 Hz. The angular frequency is related to the frequency, f, by:. Vo represents the maximum voltage, which in a household circuit in North America is about volts. We talk of a household voltage of volts, though; this number is a kind of average value of the voltage. The particular averaging method used is something called root mean square square the voltage to make everything positive, find the average, take the square root , or rms.

Voltages and currents for AC circuits are generally expressed as rms values. For a sine wave, the relationship between the peak and the rms average is:. In AC circuits we'll talk a lot about the phase of the current relative to the voltage.

In a circuit which only involves resistors, the current and voltage are in phase with each other, which means that the peak voltage is reached at the same instant as peak current. In circuits which have capacitors and inductors coils the phase relationships will be quite different.

Consider now a circuit which has only a capacitor and an AC power source such as a wall outlet. A capacitor is a device for storing charging. The AC power supply produces an oscillating voltage. We should follow the circuit through one cycle of the voltage to figure out what happens to the current. Step 1 - At point a see diagram the voltage is zero and the capacitor is uncharged. Initially, the voltage increases quickly.

The voltage across the capacitor matches the power supply voltage, so the current is large to build up charge on the capacitor plates. The closer the voltage gets to its peak, the slower it changes, meaning less current has to flow. When the voltage reaches a peak at point b, the capacitor is fully charged and the current is momentarily zero. Step 2 - After reaching a peak, the voltage starts dropping.

The capacitor must discharge now, so the current reverses direction. When the voltage passes through zero at point c, it's changing quite rapidly; to match this voltage the current must be large and negative. Step 3 - Between points c and d, the voltage is negative.

Charge builds up again on the capacitor plates, but the polarity is opposite to what it was in step one. Again the current is negative, and as the voltage reaches its negative peak at point d the current drops to zero.

Step 4 - After point d, the voltage heads toward zero and the capacitor must discharge. When the voltage reaches zero it's gone through a full cycle so it's back to point a again to repeat the cycle.

The larger the capacitance of the capacitor, the more charge has to flow to build up a particular voltage on the plates, and the higher the current will be. The higher the frequency of the voltage, the shorter the time available to change the voltage, so the larger the current has to be. The current, then, increases as the capacitance increases and as the frequency increases. Usually this is thought of in terms of the effective resistance of the capacitor, which is known as the capacitive reactance, measured in ohms.

There is an inverse relationship between current and resistance, so the capacitive reactance is inversely proportional to the capacitance and the frequency:. A capacitor in an AC circuit exhibits a kind of resistance called capacitive reactance, measured in ohms. This depends on the frequency of the AC voltage, and is given by:. An inductor is simply a coil of wire often wrapped around a piece of ferromagnet. As the voltage from the power source increases from zero, the voltage on the inductor matches it.

With the capacitor, the voltage came from the charge stored on the capacitor plates or, equivalently, from the electric field between the plates. With the inductor, the voltage comes from changing the flux through the coil, or, equivalently, changing the current through the coil, which changes the magnetic field in the coil.

To produce a large positive voltage, a large increase in current is required. When the voltage passes through zero, the current should stop changing just for an instant. When the voltage is large and negative, the current should be decreasing quickly. These conditions can all be satisfied by having the current vary like a negative cosine wave, when the voltage follows a sine wave.

How does the current through the inductor depend on the frequency and the inductance? If the frequency is raised, there is less time to change the voltage. If the time interval is reduced, the change in current is also reduced, so the current is lower. The current is also reduced if the inductance is increased. As with the capacitor, this is usually put in terms of the effective resistance of the inductor.

This effective resistance is known as the inductive reactance. This is given by:. The unit of inductance is the henry. One of the main differences between resistors, capacitors, and inductors in AC circuits is in what happens with the electrical energy. With resistors, power is simply dissipated as heat.

In a capacitor, no energy is lost because the capacitor alternately stores charge and then gives it back again. In this case, energy is stored in the electric field between the capacitor plates. The amount of energy stored in a capacitor is given by:. In other words, there is energy associated with an electric field. In general, the energy density energy per unit volume in an electric field with no dielectric is:. Spring is arriving in Knoxville!

The voltage from many loops out of synch with each other is usually added together to obtain a relatively steady voltage.

The following equation gives the total cost of operating something electrical:. If the resistors in parallel are identical, it can be very easy to work out the equivalent resistance.
