Lecture 9 Outline of Last Lecture I. Electric current: net flow of charge per unit time through some region a. By convention, current flows in the direction that positive charge would move. Electrons (the charge carriers for metals) will flow in the opposite direction of electric current. b. Measured in ampheres, amps (A) i. 1 A = 1 C/s II. Ohm’s Law: relationship between potential difference and current a. Drift speed (vd): net speed an electron moves i. Path of motion is not actually linear due to collisions with other particles, which causes a certain amount of resistance as electrons move through a material. b. ΔV = IR i. R = resistance = (ρL)/A for a conductive wire 1. ρ = resistivity (larger with more resistance, like in nonmetals) 2. L = length of conductive wire 3. A = crosssectional area of wire (πr2) c. Only applicable to ohmic materials d. R = ΔV/I in ohms (Ω) i. 1 Ω = 1 V/A e. ρ in Ω*m III. Electrical power: rate of energy consumed by resistor a. P = IΔV ( = I2R = V2/R ) i. V = IR ; I = V/R b.
