Survey of Electricity and Electrons Midterm Study Guide Created by Rachel Antal IMPORTANT How to take this test The test is split into 2 parts an in class portion on Thursday October 15th and an online portion open from Thursday the 15th Sunday the 18th at night The in class portion is all problem solving You will have the entire class time to nish You must show your work to get full credit The problems come directly from the homework which IS available to view online through Blackboard No personal notes are allowed BUT it is OPEN BOOK Bring your textbook and a calculator as no phones are allowed The take home portion is all questions from the weekly take home quizzes The quizzes unfortunately are not up to review online through Blackboard at this time You will only have ONE attempt unlike the quizzes which allowed multiple attempts Concepts Chapter 1 Matter occupies mass and has space See you matter Elements made of matter are the basic building blocks of nature 100 known elements Atoms are the smallest part of matter that retains the physical characteristics of an element De ne and understand the parts of an atom Nucleus protons neutrons electrons Understand how to nd atomic number and weight Shell valence shell and valence De ne charge measured in C Coulombs and understand its forces that attract and repel One electron charge is 16x1019 Know Ionization and what positive and negative ions are Know the difference between conductors and insulators and semiconductors Know some examples of elements for both see also resistivity and conductance De ne current measured in Ampere A De ne Resistance R measured in Ohms abbreviated by the Greek letter omega Understand how voltage can be produced measured in Volts V Magnetism is most common method Battery rating and life R and measured in mAh The difference in AC Alternating current and DC direct current Know how temperature affect resistance Know resistors and a basic understanding of color codes De ne Power measured in Watts W and electric power and power dissipation Understand a fuse and the electric switch Ohms Law Expresses the fact that the resistance is independent of the voltage or current applied to a device And Kirchhoff s Voltage Law KVL In a closed circuit the sum of all voltage raises is equal to the sum of all voltage drops Kirchhoff s Current Law KCL The sum of all the currents entering a node is equal to the sum of all currents leaving a node Finally series vs parallel circuits Chapter 2 Nikola tesla known as father of Alternating Current Created AC Generator Yipee Functions and parts of an AC Generator Armature sinusoidal waveform sine wave also identical to trig function cycles alternations revolutions peak values and periods of the wave created AC values sine wave has 2 numbers associated with it The degree of rotation and the amplitude De ne Period T Frequency f which is expressed in hertz AC nomenclature i l v V Phase angle represented by the Greek letter Theta De ne effective values also called rms value De ne Polyphase power These are systems that are able to generate several phaseshifted sine waves Usually 3 Know 3 examples of nonsinusoidal wave forms square triangular sawtooth May not be on test THAT SHOULD HELP WITH THE TAKE HOME PORTION Problems and Formulas everyone s favorite Coulombs C is the force of 1 NewtonN separated by 1 meterm lQT l current

for a square waveform these may not be on test THIS SHOULD HELP THOSE WHO DON T HAVE THE TEXTBOOK I hope this helps you guys I am not allowed to post the homework problems directly due to copyrighted material rules Examples of problems and notes from lecture class can be found on studysoupcom Search school under KSU and this course title name quotSurvey of Electricity and Electronsquot Best of luck
