Proton (+1.6x10^-19 Coulombs)
Conservation of charge
Measured in Joules
Not to be confused with work
Force F exerted E joules of energy on mass M which resulted in W joules of work done on the mass
Current is the movement of charge
Opposite direction of electron flow
Defined as charge per time
SI units coulombs/second (ampere)
i(t) = dq(t)/dt

I = dQ/dt

= p
Measured in watts
Energy per time
W = J/s = N*m/s = kg*m^2/s^3
P = IV
Measured in volts
Strength of electric field
Difference in electric potential between two points
Work required to move 1 coulomb from A to B
V = IR = P/I
Q. A current of 5A flows through a wire with a diameter of 3mm. What is the average number of electrons per second that passes through any given cross sectional point along the wire?
A. 8.0 x 10^19
B. 3.1 x 10^-19
C. 1.6 x 10^19
D. 3.1 x 10^19
1 A = 1 C/s (def)
5 A = 5 C/s

1 e = 1.6x10^-19 C (def)

5 C/s x 1/(1.6x10^-19) e/C

Answer is D.

Wire diameter is irrelevant.
Sample Problem
What is the work required to move a charge of +5 C a distance of 8 m in a uniform electric field of 100 V/m?
A. -800 J
B. 0 J
C. -4000 J
D. 4000 J
Inductance Equations
Sample Problem
What is the equivalent inductance of the circuit below?
A. 5 H
B. 20 H
C. 23.75 H
D. 25 H
L4 and L3 are in series with L2 and L1 which are in parallel.

Leq = L4 + L3 + L2//L1

= 15 + 5 + (10)(10)/(10 + 10)
= 20 + 100/20
= 20 + 5

defined as "transfer of energy"
physics says, "work is done on object when you transfer energy to that object"
if one object transfers (gives) energy to a 2nd object, then the 1st object does work on the 2nd object

W = Fxd
Units: N*m, or Joules
defined as capacity for doing work
Kinetic Energy = energy of motion
Potential Energy = stored energy
Solar radiation
infrared, radio, UV, etc
Atomic/Nuclear Energy
fission: neutron splits atom's nucleus into smaller pieces
fusion: two nuclei joined together under millions of degrees of heat
Electrical Energy
generation/use of electric power over period of time
kWH, GWh
Chemical Energy
potential energy related to breaking/forming of chemical bonds
Mechanical Energy
Heat Energy

Kinetic: Ek = 1/2*m*v^2
Potential: U = 1/2 *k*x^2
Units: N*m or Joules
Work done in a unit of time
measure of how quickly work can be done
SI: Watt = 1 Joule/1 second
English: 1 HP = 735.7 W
if we are using 1 kW of power, a kWh of energy will last one hour
heat is a form of energy, or thermal energy
heat energy is transferred as a result of temperature differences
Heat flow
Watt = 1 J/s of heat flow
Sample Problem
A 3500 kg car traveling at 65km/h skids and hits a wall 3 seconds later. The coefficient of friction between the tires and the road is 0.60.

Assuming that the speed of the car when it hits the wall is 0.20 m/s, what energy must the bumper absorb in order to prevent damage to the car?

(A) 70 J
(B) 140 J
(C) 220 J
(D) 360 kJ
Use the kinetic energy equation

Ek = 1/2 * m * v^2
= (1/2)(3500 kg)(0.2 m/s)^2
= 70 J

Answer is (A).

Force on test charge Q in electric field E:

F = QE

Force experienced by point charge 2 (Q2) in an electric field E, created by point charge 1 (Q1):

Sample Problem
represents the ability to store charge
the greater the capacitance, the greater the charge stored

Capacitance of two parallel plates of equal area A, separated by distance d. Where ϵ is the permittivity of medium separating the plates

Current in a capacitor
can change instantaneously

cannot change instantaneously
will change as the capacitor integrates the current to produce a voltage that opposes the change

Total energy (in J) stored in capacitor

Capacitors in Series:
like resistors in parallel
Cs = 1 / (1/C1 + 1/C2 +...+ 1/Cn)

Capacitors in Parallel:
like resistors in series
Cp = C1+C2+...+Cn
RC Transient Circuits
time constant
τ = RC
time it takes voltage to reach 63.3% of its steady state value
in general, transient variables will have reached their steady-state values after 5 time constants (99.3% of steady-state value)

Sample Problem
What are the voltage Vx and current Ix values through the 5Ω resistor in the center leg after a long time?

(A) 2V; 1A
(B) 2V; 3A
(C) 5V; 1A
(D) 5V; 20A


after t=5τ, the capacitor acts like an open circuit.

Using Ohm's Law for Ix, the answer is C (5V; 1A)
Congratulations, you passed!
