What is Capacitance?What is a Capacitor? • Charge-carrying conductors are surrounded by an electric field. • Field can do work on other charges. • Capacitance describes the energy stored in the electric field between 2 equal but oppositely charged conductors. Unit = Farad, F, = C/V • Large unit, - usually use mF, nF, pF. • A capacitor is a device comprising a pair of conducting surface, plates, carrying charge with a p.d. and a fixed separation between them.**Parallel Plate Capacitor**+Q - + - -Q + - + + - - - + + - + - - + + - Area, A d • From Gauss’ law, for each plate: • For 2 || plates: • But electric field, E = V/d,**2a**2b Cylindrical Capacitor +Q -Q l • Inner conductor radius = a, Inner conductor radius = b, length = l. • From Gauss’ law, • Thus: Important for practical capacitors & shielded cables**Capacitance of an Isolated Sphere**• Potential of a sphere is: • Thus, the capacitance is: Example: • Capacitance of the Earth is: 7.1 x 10-4 F**energy**Energy density = volume Energy in Capacitors • The electric field contains energy • Work to move a charge dq is: • For total charge, Q: • The work is stored as potential energy in the electric field: • Since electric field is: E = V/d i.e. energy E2**Alternative Energy Storage**Worked Example • An alternative energy proposal is for the storage of energy in electric fields of capacitors. Find the E field required to store 1J in a volume of 1 m3 in a vacuum. I.e. Large !**C1**Q1 + - + - Q2 C2 + - Capacitors in Electric Circuits • In circuits, capacitors appear in parallel or series combinations. Parallel Capacitors: • Charge is stored on the plates of both capacitors. Qtotal = Q1 + Q2 • Since Q = CV & each capacitor has the same p.d. across it:**+**- V1 V2 + - C1 C2 + - Capacitors in Electric Circuits Series Capacitors: • The magnitude of the charge on each plate is the same, Q. • The potential difference is summed across the capacitors: Vbattery = V1 + V2 • where V1 = Q/C1 , V2 = Q/C2 , etc.**Dielectrics**• Dielectric - nonconducting material between the plates of a capacitor. • Examples: air, paper, plastic, glass. • It has 2 important properties: Dielectric Strength: • Size of E-field (V/m) that causes dielectric to fail (stop insulating). • Arc or short circuit (Typ. ~ 106 V/m) • Correct dielectric can increase max operating voltage of capacitor. Dielectric Constant: • Molecular dipoles in the dielectric material align with the electric field. • Reduces effective field to E/k, where k is a constant.**Dielectric Constant**• The capacitance therefore increases as well: C = k C0 • where k = dielectric constant • This allows capacitors to be made smaller by using high k dielectrics. • The energy density in the electric field is also reduced to: u = u0 / k • Arises because it takes work to insert the dielectric • Piezo-electricity.**6. Electric Currents**What is an electric current? • An electric current is an organised movement of charges. • Usually but not always electrons. • Charges move due to applied E-field. • By definition, average current: • and at any time, instantaneous current is: • Unit: 1 Ampere, A = C/s (‘amp’) • Typ. household currents ~ few amps • In electronic circuits, ~ mA, mA, nA. • By convention, direction of current flow chosen for +ve charges. • I.e from +ve to -ve. • Electrons actually moving other way.**dA**v Currents in Materials(or, Why Do Lights Turn On?) • Current comprises charges flowing across an area dA at velocity v: • where J = current density = I/A for small A. • The number of charges passing through A is n x A. • And: J = n q vd • where vd = drift velocity of charges • and: n = number density.**Current in a Wire**Worked Example • A light draws a current of 0.5 A through a copper wire of diameter 1.0 mm. Find the drift velocity of electrons in the wire. The density of copper is 8.92 g cm-3. • What is n?**Current in a Wire**• A = cross-sectional area of wire = p r2 = p (5 x 10-4) 2 • Thus, it takes 6 hours for an electron to move 1 m. • Why do the lights turn on so quickly?**Resistance and Conductivity:Ohms ain’t Ohms!**• The rate at which charges move in a conductor due to an electric field depends on magnitude of the field. • Thus: J = sE • where s = conductivity & depends on geometry & properties of conductor. • This is known as Ohm’s Law. • Not all materials obey Ohm’s law. • I.e. not all materials are linear. • Metals at increasing temperature & semiconductors don’t obey Ohms law. • These are non-ohmic conductors. • For a wire of length l & area A. E = V / l E = J / s A vd l**I**I V V Non-ohmic conductor (e.g. diode) Ohmic conductor (e.g. resistor) Conductivity of Materials • where r = resistivity = 1 / s • Thus: V = I R • where R = r l/A = resistance • Unit = Volt / Amp: = V / A • A resistor is a device built with a specified resistance ( ‘s M’s) • Units of resistivity are .m, & conductivity ( .m)-1. (mho). • Good conductor has low r.**Electric Poweror, How Bright is your Light?**• Charges lose energy in flowing in a material (supplied by the battery). • For a small charge dq moving through a p.d. V, dU = V dq • Thus, power is given by: • But I = dq/dt: P = VI • Unit = Watt, 1W = 1 J/s • For an ohmic material the power dissipated (mostly in heat) is:**Car Starter Motor**Worked Example • A car starter motor draws 500 A through a wire of resistance 0.01 . Find the voltage drop and the power loss in the cable. • V = IR = 500 x 0.01 = 5 V • P = I2 R = (500)2 x 0.01 = 2 500 W**7. Direct Current CircuitsSources of EMF**• The electric energy that drives charges around a circuit is called the electromotive force (emf) • Not a force but an energy. • A source of emf increases the potential energy of charges in a circuit (“pumps them up”) • By definition, the emf (e) is given by: • Unit is the Volt (= J/C)**I**e R + - Equivalent Circuits and Thevenin’s Theorem • All circuits, no matter how complex can be reduced to a simple equivalent circuit • This circuit has a source of emf, e, and a resistance, R. • This is Thevenin’s theorem • The net potential energy around the circuit is: e - I R = 0**I**Rint R e + - Internal Resistance • All real sources of emf have some internal resistance that: • Reduces the output terminal voltage • Limits the power that can be delivered by the emf source.

Resistors in series • Same current in each resistor. • Voltage across each is: Vr = I R • Around the circuit loop. V = I (R1 + R2) • Therefore: V1 V2 I R1 R2 I I V Req = R1 + R2**I1**R1 I2 R2 V I + - Resistors in Circuits Resistors in parallel • Same p.d. across each resistor. • Current is shared between resistors. • In household circuits appliances are connected in parallel. • Xmas tree lights are often in series.**Circuit Analysis: Kirchoff’s Laws**• Complex circuits involving multiple loops are analysed using Kirchoff’s Laws.

Design a meter to measure 1A at fsd. IM = 1.5 mA Is = 1.0 - 0.0015 = 0.9985 A VM = IM RM = Is Rs Rs = IM RM / Is = (0.0015 x 75) / 0.9985 Rs = 0.113 VM Rs Is + - A IM 1 A RM**Rs**+ - V I RM Designing a Voltmeter Worked Example • Design a meter to measure 25V at fsd using the same galvanometer. V = Vs + VM = I Rs + I RM Rs = (25 / 0.0015) - 75 Rs = 16 591 Vs Vm V**RC Circuits & Time Constants**• At d.c. capacitors are an open circuit • I.e there is no electrical path. • The plates of a capacitor will charge or discharge if the current varieswith time. • The rate at which this happens depends upon the series resistance of the circuit and the size of the capacitor. • The series resistance limits the current flowing into the capacitor. • The characteristic time is called the time constant of the circuit. • Units: . F t = R C**R**+ e C I q - C e C e (1-1/e) Charging R C t q + I0 - Discharging I0 / e R C t RC Time Constants**RC Circuits**• Around the loop: • and • The time constant property of RC circuits is essential in time-dependent circuits, e.g. oscillators & filters**Electricity in the Home**• What is a fatal current? • Why does house wiring have 3 wires? • How do fuses work? • What is a circuit breaker? • What is an ELCB? • What current can be drawn from power points? • What is an “off-peak” system?**What is a Fatal Current?**V = 240 V 1.0 0.2 DEATH R = 1.5 k 0.1 Extreme breathing difficulty Amperes Muscular paralysis Can’t let go Painful 0.01 Mild sensation R = 0.5 M Threshold of sensation 0.001**Why does House Wiring have 3 Wires?**• The three wires are live (hot), neutral and earth. • Actually, only two wires come into your house - live & neutral. • Live is the high potential side of the transformer while the neutral is connected to ground at the transformer. • But - neutral may be at a different potential to earth by the time it gets to your house! • The earth wire is the local earth (water pipe, earth stake). • All electrical devices in a metal case have the case connected to earth. • Ensures that if the live wire touches the case then the least resistant path to earth is through the earth wire & not through you!**How do Fuses Work?**• Fuse is a small metallic strip designed to melt when the current exceeds a certain value. • Fuse wire in Woolies rated at 8 A & 16 A for example. • But, bear in mind that plain fuse wire does take a finite time to melt. • In some cases, this means that the wire has time to pass a much higher value of current than its rating! • Special fuses are available - quick blow fuses have a spring that applies tension to the fuse wire - if it starts to melt it is pulled thinner and blows quickly.**What is a Circuit Breaker?What is an ELCB ?**• More modern homes have the fuses replaced by a circuit breaker (CB). • When the current exceeds a certain value the CB acts as a switch & opens the circuit. • A common design involves the use of a bimetallic strip. • When the current exceeds a certain value the strip heats up and bends. • The bending strip breaks the circuit. • Can be slow - many CB’s now incorporate electromagnets. • An earth leakage circuit breaker (ELCB) is a device that detects very small currents (mA) to ground. • If a current is detected then the power is switched off in a few ms. • Could save your life!**What Current can be Drawn from Power Points?**• Its important to be able to calculate the max current that can be drawn. • Typically, a power circuit is fused at 16 A in Australia. • Light circuits are fused at 8 A. • Thus, for a single circuit the total current load must not exceed 16 A. • But - most appliances quote the power drawn and not the current. • Just need to remember that P = IV and that mains voltage is 240 V. • Max power load on a single circuit is: P = 16 x 240 = 3.8 kW • In many old houses in Newcastle all of the sockets in the house are on a single circuit!!! • Be careful when turning stuff on! - especially in winter!**What is an “off - peak” system?**• Demand for electricity is not spread out evenly during the day or year. • This presents problems for the power supply companies and the management of the power distribution network. • To encourage more even use of power the cost of electricity supplied during low demand periods “off peak” is reduced. • This usually occurs after 11pm and is measured by a separate meter box. • The meter box is activated by a high frequency signal transmitted down the power cable to your house. • Usually operates water heaters and household storage heaters. • Off-peak power is also used to store energy - e.g. hydro-systems.
