Alternative lecture on

CURRENT, RESISTANCE, OHMS LAW AND CIRCUITS


Prepared by
ERNEST P. MACALALAD, Ph.D.

At the end of this alternative lecture, you should be able to:


i.
Apply the definition of current as the rate at which charge moves through a
point, including solving for the amount of charge that passes the point in a
given time interval.
ii.
Apply the relationship between the potential difference applied across an
object, the objects resistance, and the resulting current through the object,
between the application points.
iii.
Apply the relationship between an objects resistance R, the resistivity of its
material , its length L, and its cross-sectional area A.
iv.
For a resistive device, apply the relationships between power P, current i,
voltage V, and resistance R.
v.
For an ideal battery, apply the relationship between the emf, the current, and
the power (rate of energy transfer).
vi.
Calculate the equivalent of series resistors in a series and parallel circuit.
vii.
Calculate the potential difference between any two points in a circuit
viii.
Calculate the current passing through a resistor in a circuit.
