Electrical Work and Power Electrical Work and Power I + Higher V1 Resistance R I Lower V2 Current I flows through a potential difference V Follow a charge Q : at positive end, U1 = QV1

at negative end, U2 = QV2 P.E. Decreases: U QV 0 The speed of the charges is constant in the wires and resistor. What is electrical potential energy converted to? Electrical resistance converts electrical potential energy to thermal energy (heat), just as friction in mechanical systems converts mechanical energy to heat. This thermal energy means the atoms in the conductor move faster and so the conductor

gets hotter. The average kinetic energy of the electrons doesnt increase once the current reaches a steady state; the electrons lose energy in collisions with the atoms as fast as it is supplied by the field. Power dissipated by a resistor: U (Q)V P

IV t t Power dissipated= current x potential difference Units: 1 volt (=J/C) x 1 amp (=C/s) = 1 watt (= 1 J/s) For Resistor: V = IR, so there are 2 other equivalent formulas: V P VI I R R 2

2 This power dissipated is called Joule heating in a resistor Example a) What is the resistance of a 60 watt bulb? (for a 120-V supply) b) Find R for a 60-W headlamp (12-V battery). c) What power do you get from a 60-W household bulb if you connect it to a 12-V car battery?

Example The tungsten filament of a light bulb dissipates 60.0W of power from a 120-volt source. If the filament is a wire 50.0 mm long and 0.250 mm in diameter, calculate the resistivity of tungsten at the operating temperature of the filament. Quiz Car batteries are usually rated in ampere-hours. This information designate the amount of: a) current b) power c) energy d) charge e) potential that the battery can supply

Electromotive force (emf) external work per unit charge Units: J/C = volts (not actually a force) but it pushes the charges through the circuit. + I Eg: Battery (chemical energy electrical energy) Generator

(mechanical energy electrical energy) I=2A =12 V R When current leaves the battery the battery supplies power equal to: P = I = 24WW If current were forced to enter the battery, (as in charging it) then it absorbs the same power

What does the energy balance look like in this circuit? 12V R 6 so Joule heating=I 2 R 24W 2A Resistor: Electrical energy heat Real Batteries I A r

r = internal resistance of the battery I RL (external resistance, load) I B VB +

-Ir=VA VA VB = V = terminal voltage measured Ir (V V ) A - Ir = V B

Terminal voltage Example A battery has an emf of 12V and an internal resistance of 0.05. Its terminals are connected to a load resistance of 3. Find:. Find: a) The current in the circuit and the terminal voltage b) The power dissipated in the load, the internal resistance, and the total power delivered by the battery Example Show that the maximum power lost in the load resistance R occurs when R=r, that is, when the load resistance matches the internal resistance of the battery.

Example Automobile battery: 12.8 V (with 20 A current) 9.2 V (with 200 A current) At terminals Find: E and rinternal of battery Shocking questions -

Why is it safer to touch wires with the back of your hand? - If you fall from a building and on your way down grab a high-voltage line, will you be electrocuted?
