Light and heat can be produced using electrical energy.
Electricity can be used to turn a motor.
The amount of power and energy being produced can be determined by measuring the voltage and current in a circuit.
J/C is a measure of the energy supplied to each coulomb of charge in the circuit.
The total number of coulombs per second is measured by the current.
We know that the energy is given by VIt, where it must be in seconds.
The chapter is about to explore the laws of charge and energy.
The following rules for circuits were given to us by Gustav Kirchhoff.
The junction rule says that the total current coming into a junction must be equal to the total current leaving the junction.
As you travel around a closed loop of a circuit, the total voltage drops and gains must total to zero.
A voltage drop against the current is called a gain.
From positive to negative is a voltage gain and from negative to positive is a voltage drop.
The current coming into the junction on the left is 9 Amps, so a total of 9 Amps must be leaving.
Since the other two branches are carrying a total of 8 Amps, 1 Amp is left for the missing pathway.
I give you -2 V as a representation of the voltage dropping across the R 1 Resistor.
As we traced through this resistor from right to left, we were able to get the decrease in voltage result.
Two or more resistors are placed within a circuit.
An example is shown.
We need to ask some questions.
Imagine a series of doors, one after the other, as a way to think about this circuit.
People must wait to open another door as they exit one door.
The result is a decrease in the number of people leaving the room.
Adding more resistors in a series increases the resistance of the circuit.
All of these observations can be summarized as follows.
We have three currents in the resistors R 1, R 2 and R 3.
The source voltage V is more than 888-738-5526 888-738-5526.
The source voltage would be equal to one-third if all three resistors were equal.
The three currents are equal, so they can be canceled out of the expression.
The total resistance of the circuit increases as the number of resistances increases.
As more resistors are added, the current decreases.
The circuit current of 12/6 is 2 A since the source voltage is 12 V. The same current of 2 A can be used to determine the voltage across each Resistor.
When batteries are connected in series, the effective voltage increases as well.
A parallel circuit consists of pathways connecting from one point to another.
An example of a parallel circuit is shown.
I 1 and I 2 are split into a branch point in this circuit.
Experiments verify that the source V is the same as the source V across the resistors.
The current is shared and the voltage is the same.
Alternative paths are a feature of the parallel circuit.
Current can flow through the other path if one part of the circuit is broken.
The effect of adding resistors in parallel is to increase the effective circuit current by decreasing the circuit resistance.
Imagine a set of doors next to each other in a room.
The parallel-circuit analogy involves placing the doors next to each other.
The effect is to allow more people to leave the room even though there will be less people going through each door.
Reducing the circuit resistance and increasing the circuit current are the same thing.
These observations can be expressed as follows.
R 1 and R 2 have currents I 1 and I 2.
The expression indicates that the total resistance is determined "reciprocally", which reduces the total resistance of the circuit.
There is no effect on the overall voltages of the batteries if they are connected in parallel.
The 20- and 5-resistors are connected to each other.
If a 16-V battery is used, calculate the equivalent resistance of the circuit, the circuit current, and the amount of current flowing through each resistor.
It is easy to see that R eq is 4.
To find the current in each branch, we have to remember that the voltage drop across each Resistor is the same as the source voltage.
The total current is the same as expected.
A circuit that consists of resistors in parallel and series is presented.
The key to reducing such a circuit is to decide if it is a series or parallel circuit.
A parallel branch with two 4-resistors is placed in a series.
To determine the circuit current, the voltage reading in the voltmeter, and the current reading in the meter, you have to reduce the circuit to only oneresistor.
Reducing the parallel branch is necessary to find the circuit resistance R.
R e is the number of resistance.
The circuit can now be thought of as a series of circuits between a 2- and 8-resistor.
In a series circuit, the same current flows through each resistor and the voltage drop across them is shared proportionally.
In a parallel circuit, the voltage is the same across all the resistors.
Since the two resistors are equal, each will get half of the circuit current, and the reading on the ammeter is 1 A.
We used the rule at the junction to reduce the current.
Questions on the AP physics 1 exam will be limited to one parallel path and one ideal battery in circuits.
Many students of physics are confused by the fact that the current coming out of the resistor is the same as the current coming in.
Many students think the energy of moving electrons is a type of energy called kinetic energy.
The moving charges carry the electrical potential energy in the electric and magnetic fields.
The electrons going into the resistor are different from the ones coming out.
The fields associated with their relative positions are completely different even though the number of electrons passing per second is the same.
All potential energies are related to the physical relationship between two or more objects.
The slightly closer-spaced electrons before they enter the Resistor have more energy than the slightly farther apart electrons leaving the Resistor, just as 5 fully extended rubber bands moving past you at 5 mph have more total energy than the same 5 slack rubber bands moving past you at the same speed
The strongest example of field energy for electricity is in light.
As the light goes from one place to another, it is carrying energy.
There are other potential energies that can be used to make parallels.

Positive and negative electric charges exist.
Electrons have a negative charge.
There is a positive charge.
Like charges repel, unlike charges attract.
The presence of static charges can be detected with an electrical device.
The objects are charged by the transfer of electrons.
The force between two static charges is described by Coulomb's law.
The force of attraction is proportional to the product of the charges and the force of repulsion is proportional to the square of the distance between them.
The law of gravitation is similar to this one.
The electrical potential difference is equal to the work done per unit charge.
Electric current is the flow of charge in units of amperes.
The conventional current is based on a positive charge flow.
At constant temperature, the ratio of voltage and current is a constant in a conductor.
The material used, length, and cross-sectional area are all related to electrical resistance.
Ammeters measure current and are placed within a circuit.
The potential difference is measured and placed in parallel across segments of the circuit.
A source of potential difference is needed for a simple circuit.
Resistors connected in series have the same resistance as their numerical sum and carry the same current through each.
The same potential difference can be experienced across parallel Resistors if they are connected in parallel.
The flow of current in circuit branches and the changes in voltage around loops are described in the rules.
There are several techniques for solving electric circuit problems discussed in this chapter.
Series and parallel circuits are used for resistances with one source of emf.
The determination of currents within the circuit and the potential drops across the resistors are measured by the Ohm's law.
Try to reduce all subbranches first when working with a combination circuit.
The goal is to be able to identify the missing quantities by using Ohm's law.

Platinum wire is wound into a coil.
A laboratory experiment uses lightbulbs.
The current readings decline after a while.
Sphere A and B have zero charges.
Each sphere will have half of the total charge when it is touched and separated.
Each now has + Q.
We distribute the charge evenly when B and C are touched.
B, C, and A all have + Q /4.
When A and C are touched, we take the average of + Q /4 and + Q /2, which is +3 Q /8.
The final distribution is 3 Q -8, Q -4, and Q -8.
Everything except one charge is given.
The charge is equivalent to 10 18 electrons.
2 A for 2 s is equivalent to 2.5 x 10 19 electrons.
The two resistors are in a series.
R is 4.
The source current must be added to the branch currents.
We can see that the current in the 2-resistor is 6/2 because of the Ohm's law.
The current in R must be equal to 1 A.
The 10-resistor has twice the resistance of the 5-resistor in series.
When the circuit is on, the 10-resistor will generate twice as much energy as if the currents were equal.
There will be a greater potential difference across D than across the equivalent resistor.
The equivalent resistance will generate less power than the currents will allow.
With the current split for the parallel part, there will be less energy available for the resistors A, B, and C. Bulb D will be bright.

There is an equivalent resistance of 8 O + 2 O.
The resistance is in close proximity to the other one.
5 is the equivalent resistance for the entire parallel branch.
The total equivalent resistance of 10 is made up of this resistance and the other 5-resistors.
There is a potential difference of 20 V between the parallel branch's resistance and that of the entire branch, because the parallel branch's resistance is also 5.
The potential difference is the same across the circuit.
The 10-resistor has 20 V across it.
We find that this means a current reading of 2 A for ammeter A.
The emf of the system is not changed when two batteries are connected in parallel.
Since the parallel connection of the two batteries is similar to the parallel connection of two capacitors, the storage capacity of the battery system is increased.
The equivalent resistance of 1 can be achieved by connecting two 2-resistors.
An equivalent resistance of 3 can be achieved by connecting two 2-resistors in parallel and then one 2-resistor in a series.
Lightbulbs produce their energy by heating up the inside of them.
Since the resistance has increased, this increase in temperature reduces the current flowing through them.
