1 DC Circuits: Ch 19 Voltage Starts out at highest point at + end of battery Voltage drops across lightbulbs and other sources of resistance. Voltage increases again at battery. I The following circuit uses a 1.5 V battery and has a 15 W lightbulb. a. Calculate the current in the circuit b. Calculate the voltage drop across the lightbulb. c. Sketch a graph of voltage vs. path (battery, top wire, resistor, bottom wire) +  Voltage highest Voltage zero Resistors in Series Same current (I) passes through all resistors (bulbs) All bulbs are equally bright (energy loss, not current loss) Voltage drop across each resistor (V 1,V 2, V 3 ) 1
2 V = V 1 + V 2 + V 3 V = IR 1 + IR 2 + IR 3 V = I(R 1 + R 2 + R 3 ) R eq = R 1 + R 2 + R 3 V = IR eq Resistors in Parallel Current splits at the junction Same Voltage across all resistors I = I 1 + I 2 + I 3 I 1 = V R 1 I = V R eq Calculate the equivalent resistance of two 200W resistors placed in: a. Series b. Parallel 1 = R eq R 1 R 2 R 3 2
3 Calculate the equivalent resistance for the circuit below. Which combination of auto headlights will produce the brightest bulbs? Assume all bulbs have a resistance of R. For the Bulbs in Series: R eq = R + R = 2R For the Bulbs in Parallel 1 = R eq R R 1 = 2 R eq R R eq = R/2 The bulbs in parallel have less resistance and will be brighter What current flows through each resistor in the following circuit? (R = 100 W) A Calculate the current through this circuit, and the voltage drop across each resistor. V ab = (0.0174A)(400W) V ab = 6.96 V V bc = (0.0174A)(290W) V bc = 5.04 V R eq = 690 W I = A 3
4 What current flows through each of the resistors in this circuit? (Both are 100 W) What current will flow through the circuit shown? (I =0.48 A, I 1 =I 2 =0.24 A) R eq = 400 W W R eq = 690 W V = IR I = V/R I = 12.0 V/690 W I = A or 17 ma What current is flowing through just the 500 W resistor? First we find the voltage drop across the first resistor: V = IR = (0.017 A)(400 W) V = 6.8 V The voltage through the resistors in parallel will be: 12.0 V 6.8 V = 5.2 V Calculate the equivalent resistance in the following circuit. To find the current across the 500 W resistor: V = IR I = V/R I = 5.2 V/500 W = A = 10 ma 4
5 Which bulb will be the brightest in this arrangement (most current)? Bulb C (current gets split running through A and B) What happens when the switch is opened? C and B will have the same brightness (I is constant in a series circuit) What resistance would be present between points A and B? (ANS: 41/15 R) EMF and Terminal Voltage Batteries  source of emf (Electromotive Force), E (battery rating) All batteries have some internal resistance r A 12V battery has an internal resistance of 0.1 W. If 10 Amps flow from the battery, what is the terminal voltage? V ab = E Ir V ab = terminal(useful)voltage E = battery rating r = internal resistance V ab = 11 V 5
6 Calculate the current in the following circuit. R eq = 6 W W R eq = 8.7 W 1/R eq = 1/10 W + 1/8.7 W R eq = 4.8 W Everything is now in series R eq = 4.8 W W W R eq = 10.3 W V = IR I = V/R I = 9.0 V/10.3 W I = 0.87 A Now calculate the terminal(useful)voltage. V = E Ir V = 9.0 V (0.87 A)(0.50 W) V = 8.6 V Grounded Wire is run to the ground Houses have a ground wire at main circuit box Does not affect circuit behavior normally Provides path for electricity to flow in emergency 6
