#### Week 1 Introduction to Current Electricity Take Online Quiz Here

What is an electric circuit? It is a complete conducting loop that provides a path for the flow of electric charges (or electrons). As shown in Figure 1 below, [sociallocker id=”8247″] the battery, switch, resistor and the wire form a closed loop, thus creating a path for current (or electron) to flow. Figure 2 shows the actual connection of the components that make up a simple electric circuit. Figure 1 Figure 2

[/sociallocker] What follows after a good understanding of electric circuit is Ohm’s law. Ohm’s law is stated as follows:

V = IR

where V = voltage, I = current, and R = resistance.

Ohm’s law allows you to determine the characteristics of a circuit, such as how much current is flowing through it, if you know the voltage of the battery in the circuit and how much resistance is in the circuit.

Define Ohm’s Law: Ohm’s Law states that the current flowing in a conductor is directly proportional to the applied potential difference provided the temperature of the conductor and other physical properties such as area and length remain constant. Watch the video on Ohm’s Law Evaluation
1. Explain how to connect an ammeter in a circuit.

Sub topics:
Resistors and cells in series
Resistors and cells in parallel

#### Resistors in Parallel  When resistors are connected in parallel, they have the same potential difference across them. In order to calculate the equivalent resistance of two resistors connected in parallel, the equation below is used. Questions Derive an expression for the resistance of two conductors connected in: (i) series (ii) parallel. (Farinde pg 101 Q9)

#### Resistors in Parallel  When resistors are connected in parallel, they have the same potential difference across them. In order to calculate the equivalent resistance of two resistors connected in parallel, the equation below is used.

The following video explains how resistors are connected in series and parallel.

#### Resistors in Series

The total resistance (or equivalent resistance) in a circuit in which resistors are connected in series is equal to the sum of the individual resistances.

i.e.       Req = R1 + R2 + R3 —- for 3 resistors

Req = R1 + R2 + R3 + … + Rn —- for n resistors

Also, if a current, I, is applied at one end of a group of resistors connected in series, it would flow through each resistor sequentially to the opposite end.  #### Resistors in Parallel  When resistors are connected in parallel, they have the same potential difference across them. In order to calculate the equivalent resistance of two resistors connected in parallel, the equation below is used. Questions Derive an expression for the resistance of two conductors connected in: (i) series (ii) parallel. (Farinde pg 101 Q9)
