What is a conductor

A material that allows electricity to flow through it easily due to the presence of delocalised electrons and/or cations

1 of 38

What is an insulator

A material that does not allow electricity to flow through it easily due to the absence of delocalised electrons and/or cations

2 of 38

Current

The rate of flow of charge at a point in the circuit.

3 of 38

Equations of charge

"Q = It or Q = ne Q: charge (C) t: time (s) e: charge of e- (1.6x10-19) I: current (A) n: number of electrons"

Define volt

One amp is equal to a charge of 1 coulomb passing a fixed point in the circuit every second

5 of 38

Define amp

One amp is equal to a charge of 1 coulomb passing a fixed point in the circuit every second

6 of 38

Define potential difference

The electrical energy converted to other forms per unit of charge moving between two points in a circuit

7 of 38

Define electromotive force

The energy converted to electrical energy per unit of charge passing between two points in the circuit

8 of 38

Equation for potential difference

V = W ÷ Q V: PD (V) W: work (J)

9 of 38

Compare and contrast PD and EMF

"Both are measured in volts and measure work done per unit charge. PD - Refers to conversion of electrical energy to other forms and is electrical energy lost by charge EMF - Refers to a source supplying electrical energy and is electrical energy gai

10 of 38

When does: 1) PD = EMF 2) PD < EMF 3) PD > EMF

"1) when no current is flowing 2) when current flows normally 3) when battery is charging"

Why do all bulbs in a circuit light at the same time?

As delocalised electrons are present at each bulb before power supply added so there is no difference in time taken for current to reach each bulb

Conventional current definition

hypothetical positive charge carried from the positive towards the negative terminal

13 of 38

Electron flow direction

from the negative terminal towards the positive terminal

14 of 38

Define resistance

The ratio of the potential difference between two points to the current passing through those points

15 of 38

What causes resistance?

Resistance is caused by the collision of delocalised electrons with cations in which Ke is transferred to the cations causing them to vibrate more rapidly with increased amplitude

16 of 38

State 4 factors that affect resistance and how

"Material - higher density = closer cations = less space for e- = less R Length (R∝L) - double length = double n.cations = double R Temp - increased temp = more vibrations = increased R CSA (R∝1/CSA) - more e- flow simultaneously = more collisions =

Ohms Law

For a conductor the current through it is directly proportional to the potential difference across it, provided the temperature remains constant

18 of 38

Equation for Resistance

R = V ÷ I

19 of 38

Resistors in series

RT = R1 + R2 + R3

20 of 38

Resistors in parallel

1/RT = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3

21 of 38

Identical resistors in parallel

RT = R1 ÷ N. R

22 of 38

Define resistivity

Numerically equal to the resistance between opposite faces of a 1m cube of the material

23 of 38

Differences between resistance and resistivity

Resistance measured in Ω and is a property of the conductor and varies depending on its physical dimensions whereas resistivity is in Ωm and is a property of the material that does not depend on its physical dimensions, but its atomic structure

24 of 38

Equation for resistivity

￼￼ ρ =(RA)÷l

25 of 38

Equation for area

A = (πd)2 ÷ 4

26 of 38

What happens to the resistance of a filament lamp as current increases

The resistance increases

27 of 38

What happens to the resistance of a NTC thermistor as current increases

The resistance decreases

28 of 38

Principle of conservation of charge

The total current flowing into a junction equals the total current leaving the junction (∑/in = ∑/out)

29 of 38

Define internal resistance

The small amount of resistance which opposes the flow of current through the object present in a power supply or battery

30 of 38

Equations for internal resistance

"E = IR + Ir E = V + Ir E = I(R + r) r: internal resistance "

31 of 38

Define a superconductor

A material when its resistivity falls to zero below its critical/transition temperature

32 of 38

Define transition temperature

The temperature below which the material’s resistivity falls to zero

33 of 38

Applications of superconductivity

"used in making electromagnets which are used in maglev trains Used in MRI scanners"

Power Equations

P = IV P = I2R P = V2÷R W = ItV

35 of 38

Electrical energy equation

E = W ÷ Q E: EMF (V)

36 of 38

Define potential divider

An arrangement of resistors whereby a fraction of PD supplied to it can be passed on to an external circuit

37 of 38

Potential divider equation

Vout = R1 ÷ (R1 + R2) xVin
