**Chapter Eight: Electricity and Magnetism**• 8.1 Electricity • 8.2 Electrical Circuits and Electrical Power • 8.3 Properties of Magnets**8.2 Electric Circuits and Electrical Power**• An electric circuitis a complete path through which electric current travels. • A good example of a circuit is the one found in an electric toaster.**8.2 Current in a circuit**• Current only flows when there is a complete and unbroken path, or a closed circuit. • Flipping a switch to the “off” position creates an open circuit by making a break in the wire.**8.2 Current in a circuit**• The amount of electric current flowing into any part of a circuit must be the same as the amount flowing back out.**8.2 Electrical power**• Electrical power is measured in watts, just like mechanical power. • A 100-watt electric light bulb uses 100 joules of energy every second.**8.2 Electrical Power**• To calculate power in an electric circuit you multiply the voltage and current together. What is the power in this circuit?**8.2 Resistance**• Resistance(R) controls how much current flows for a given voltage. • When resistance is low, current flows easily.**8.2 Resistance**This light bulb has a resistance of 1 ohm. • Electrical resistance is measured in ohms. • If a circuit has a resistance of 1 ohm, then a voltage of 1 volt causes a current of 1 amp to flow.**8.2 Ohm’s law**• The current in a circuit depends on voltage and resistance. • Ohm’s law relates current, voltage, and resistance with one formula.**8.2 Ohm’s law**• Voltage and current are directly related. • Doubling the voltage doubles the current. • Resistance and current are inversely related. • Doubling the resistance cuts the current in half. • If you know two of the three quantities, you can use Ohm’s law to find the third.
