Electricity and Magnetism Electricity Section 1 Electric Charge and Static Electricity Balloon and can activity Balloon confetti

Recall: What are the parts of the atom and their charges? 1.Proton 2.Neutron Positive charge

Neutral No charge 3.Electron Negative How are protons, neutrons, and electrons arranged in

an atom? What happens when: They repel! They Repel They

attract! So... Charges that are the same repel each other and charges that are different

attract each other. In what other situation do opposites attract? Magnetism = magnetic poles interact. (north and south) Opposites attract and like

poles repel Electricity = opposite charges attract and like charge repel Magnetism vs. Electricity Magnetism Poles cant exist on their own. Always N and S

together Electricity Positive charges can exist without negatives ELECTRIC FORCE = the attraction or repulsion between electric charges

Electric charges can exert their force over a distance. The region where that force is is called an electric field. .what does this remind you of? Electric Fields You can represent them using electric field

lines Try to draw the field for 2 positive charges next to each other and for a positive and a negative charge. Review: Electrons carry a negative charge while protons carry positive

charge. The objects around us contain billions and billions of atoms, and each atom contains many protons and electrons. The protons are located in the center of the atom, concentrated in a small area called the nucleus. The electrons are in motion outside of the nucleus in orbitals. The protons are basically trapped inside the nucleus and can't escape the nucleus. As a result, it is moving electrons that are

primarily responsible for electricity. Static Discharge Most atoms have an even number of protons (+ charges) and electrons (- charges). What is the overall charge of this and most atoms??

NEUTRAL In some materials (especially metals), electrons are held pretty loosely. They can move to other atoms. What would happen if an atom LOST an electron?

What would happen if an atom GAINED an electron? Can you see Electric charge? What kind of instrument detects charge? (page 40)

Static Discharge Charges that build up in static electricity dont stay like that forever. Atoms and objects prefer to be neutral When a negatively charged object and a positively charged object are brought together, electrons transfer until both objects have the same charge. Static Discharge = loss of static electricity as

electric charges transfer from one object to another Electricity The most commonly- observed form of electricity is probably lightning. Lightning is a big spark that occurs when lots of electrons move from one place to another very quickly.

There are three basic forms of lightning, cloud to cloud, cloud to surface, and surface to cloud. All are created when there is an unequal distribution of electrons. Section 2 Electric Current

Lightning is a quick release of a huge amount of electrical energy. Unfortunately, it cannot be used to power a TV or appliances because it only lasts for a second. Instead..devices need continuously flowing electric charges

Is static electricity continuous? Do the electric charges flow continuously? NO. The charges build up for a while and do not go anywhere. Then, in static discharge, they travel really fast and it lasts only for an instant.

What is it called when electric charges flow continuously through a material such as a wire? An ELECTRIC CURRENT! The RATE of the electric

current Is the amount of charge that passes through the wire in a unit of time The UNIT for rate of a current is called. The AMPERE also known as the AMP. It is the charges flowing past a given point each second. FUN FACT: Its named after Marie Ampere a

scientist who studied electricity. See page 44-45 An electric current (continuously flowing electric charges) need a specific PATH to follow. The name for this PATH that the charges

travel on is an ELECTRIC CIRCUIT. Compare to : cars on a race track. If part of the track is missing. What are the cars going to do? What types of electrical devices have electric circuits? DO NOW

Brainstorm types of materials that are often used in cooking. Think of types of materials that are used for protection in cooking so that you do not burn yourself. Based on the definition of electricity, why do you think some materials are good at conducting electricity and

others are not? Wires are usual made of metal. Would a circuit with wires made from plastic or string have the same effect? No.. Different materials have different properties.

A Conductor transfers electric charge well. An insulator does not transfer electric charge well CONDUCTORS Ex: metals silver/copper/aluminum/iron Charges flow easily through these materials. The electrons of the atoms are held loosely so

they move throughout the material easily! Electrons flow and carry an electric current and electric charge. Turn on the lights! Did you ever wonder why a light goes on the instant you flip the switch? How do the electrons get to your lamp from the electric

company so fast? The answer is that the electrons are not sent to your housethey are already present inside the conductors of the circuit. When you flip the switch, electrons at one end of the wire are pulled while those at the other end are pushed. INSULATORS

Ex: rubber/glass/sand/plastic/wood Charges (electrons ) cannot flow easily because they are bound tightly to their atoms. So, why dont you get a shock when you touch an extension cord that is carrying a current?

Contrary to popular belief: Metals are NOT the only conductors! Ex: fluorescent light bulbs have a gas that conducts electricity Ex: some liquids and pastes in batteries conduct electricity

Classwork/ Homework What is potential energy? Whats an example of a place with high potential energy? Whats an example of a place with low potential energy? What allows a roller coaster to speed down a hill? How is an electric circuit similar to a roller coaster? What provides the potential energy, and what is potential energy related to?

What is the voltage of a circuit and what is another name for it? What does voltage cause? What is another way of thinking about voltage? What is a voltage source? Why is it necessary? What are examples of voltage sources? How does a voltage source get charges to move? Potential Energy Energy an object has as a result of its position,

or height. High potential energy top of hill Low potential energy bottom of hill Why does a roller coaster speed down a hill? The difference in potential energy! It moves

from high to low An electric circuit is similar to a roller coaster: Circuit:: roller coasters steel track Energy source(battery):: roller coasters motor Electric circuit is different than a

roller coaster: Electric circuits potential energy is a result of charges in the battery. BUT A roller coasters potential energy is a result of height differences The voltage of a circuit :

Is the difference in electrical potential energy between two places in a circuit. AKA potential difference What does voltage cause? It causes a current in an electric circuit Another way of thinking about

voltage Its the amount of FORCE pushing an electric current A voltage source Its a device that creates a potential difference in an electric circuit It has 2 terminals, so that charges will move

Ex: generator, battery RESISTANCE Not only does height difference or voltage affect the speed of a roller coaster, but the quality of wheels does too. If they are rusty, the roller coaster cannot travel as easily

Resistance, contd Just like it is hard for rusty wheels to move, some materials make it hard for charges to move through them in a current. You can measure this as RESISTANCE. The Greater the resistance, the Less current there is for a given voltage

Resistance Gregory Ohm studied resistance. The unit to measure resistance is the ohm! CLASSWORK 1. What are the 4 factors that determine resistance of a wire (or any object)? Explain how each affects the resistance of a current

2. What is the path of least resistance and how does it relate to currents? 3. Why is it safe for a bird to sit on an uninsulated electric fence? 4 factors that determine resistance 1. material of wire

Some hold electrons tightly (insulators)(high resistance) and others do not (low resistance) 2. Length The longer the wire, the more the resistance 3. Diameter The thinner the wire, the more the resistance

4. temperature of wire The lower the temperature, the lower the resistance The PATH OF least resistance If a current has a choice of two paths, it will choose the path of least resistance

BATTERIES Energy can be TRANSFORMED from one form to another. Batteries transform ________ energy to ________energy. Chemical to electrical What is chemical energy?

It is energy stored in chemical compounds. LUIGI GALVANI

He was an Italian physician that studied the anatomy (body structure) of frogs. He had a brass hook that he used to hold the frogs leg muscled in place. Then, he accidentally touched on end of the hook to an iron railing, and the frogs leg twitched. He had no idea what just happened and he though maybe there was a sort of animal electricity

Alessandro Volta He learned about Galvanis observations, but he made a new hypothesis. He thought there was a chemical reaction causing the frogs muscle to twitch What is a chemical reaction???? It is a process in which substances charge into new substances with different properties.

Maybe, a chemical reaction occurred between the 2 metals (the iron and the brass) and also the salty fluids in the frogs leg muscle! Alessandro wanted to test it out

He placed a piece of paper soaked with salt water between a piece of zinc and a piece of silver. Then he put wires on the silver and zinc. Sure enough, a current WAS produced. The more layers of this that he added, the greater the current he was able to produce

This was the FIRST electric battery!!! Layers of zinc, paper soaked in salt water, and silver Electrochemical Cells An electrochemical cell = a device that transforms chemical energy into electrical

energy 2 metals called electrodes They are immersed in a substance called an electrolyte. This solution conducts electric current. What were the electrodes in Voltas experiment? What was the electrolyte in Voltas experiment? Pg 56

A Simple Cell Terminal = part of the electrode above the surface of the electrolyte They make it possible to connect the cell to a circuit Chemical reactions will cause one electrode to become negatively charged and the other to

become positive. IF you stack a bunch of electrochemical cells together.. You will get a BATTERY! Batteries in your flashlight are actually just single cells, not batteries.

To get total voltage of a battery, just add up the voltages of each individual battery. Wet Cell VS Dry Cell In a wet cell: electrolyte is a LIQUID

In a dry cell: electrolyte is a PASTE SECTION 4 ELECTRIC CIRCUIT: Current, voltage, resistance are all related Ohm studied these three factors to find out how they are related.

Resistance = Voltage / Current Voltage = current x resistance What if you doubled the voltage but left the resistance the same? Units of measurement Resistance is measured in :

Ohms Voltage is measured in: Volts (V) Current is measured in:

Amps (A) Features of a Circuit 1. it has devices that run by electrical energy Ex: fan switches electrical to mechanical 2. it has a source of electrical energy EX: BATTERY, GENERATOR, ELECTRIC PLANT

3. It is connected by conducting wires THEY COMPLETE THE PATH SO CHANRGES CAN FLOW Circuit Diagram Series vs Parallel Circuit SERIES CIRCUIT

PARALLEL CIRCUIT - One path Several paths to take If one light bulb burns out, all of them go

out because the path now has a break in it If one light burns out, the other ones can still turn on If you add more lights, they get dimmer

If you add more lights, brightness does not change An AMMETER should be connected in series to measure current A voltmeter should be connected in parallel to measure the voltage

(electrical potential energy difference) ^ used in your home..why? Pg 68 Electrical Power

Devices often transform electrical energy into some other useful kind of energy. Like mechanical energy in the case of a washing machine. POWER = The rate at which energy is transformed from one form to another Ex: a light bulb has power of 100 W

Hair dryer transforms electrical energy into _________________ Amplifier transforms electrical energy into _________________ Power Measured in WATTS

Power = voltage x current UNITS: Watts = volts x amperes P=VxI P = VI Imagine an appliance with 200

volts and 1.5 amps of current. What is the power? Power = voltage x current Power = 200 volts x 1.5 amps Power = 300 WATTS A flashlight bulb uses two 1.5V batters in series to create a current

of 0.5 amps. What is the power rating of the bulb? Power = Voltage x current Power = 3V x 0.5 amps Power = 1.5 WATTS A hair dryer has a power rating of 1200 watts and uses a standard

voltage of 120 volts. What is the current through the hair dryer? Power = voltage x current

1200 watts = 120 volts x ? ? = 1200/120 ? = 10 amperes Just like long-distance runners dont measure their distance in meters..they measure it in KILOMETERS (1000 meters).

Paying for Electrical Energy Often , we use a lot of power, so it is easier to measure in KILOWATTS (a thousand watts). The total energy you use depends on the power of the appliances multiplied by the amount of time they are used. Energy = Power x time

(Kilowatt-hours = kilowatts x hours) Energy = Power x time So if you have a 1 kilowatt appliance , and you use it for an hour.. How much energy did you use? Energy = 1kw x 1 hour = 1 kw-hr

ELECTRICAL SAFETY 3 main potential dangers 1. short circuits 2. electric shocks 3. ungrounded wires

What is a short circuit? If you TOUCH a downed wire: The current wants to take the path of least resistance so it might flow through a person rather than through the wire to the power plant. OUCH.

ELECTRIC SHOCKS. Your heart, muscles, and breathing all function by electric signals An electric shock from a high-voltage wire could burn you or stop your heart Grounding

If charges can flow directly from the circuit into earth in the event of a short circuit, it is GROUNDED. 3rd prong protects people from electric shock by connecting metal shell of an appliance to earth through a grounding wire. Circuits might overheat

Therefore, we add devices called fuses and circuit breakers to circuits FUSE = device w/ thin strip of metal that will melt if theres too much current through it Circuit Breaker = reusable safety switch that breaks the circuit when the current gets too high

Analyzing Data page 72 What does the graph show? What determines the size of each wedge in the graph? What percentage of fires are caused by appliances? Which category is most responsible for fewest fires? Most fires?
