Week 7 Thursday, October 6, 2016 11:07 AM • Nichrome wire from last week melted and recast w 2x original length. Find Rn as multiple of old resistance Ro Suppose electrical wire replaced w one having every linear dimension doubled  With higher T, atoms vibrate leading to thermal scattering of electrons  Electrons find it more diff to pass thru atoms bc of more collisionsw atoms  Increased e- scattering w inc T= inc R  For most metals, R inc approx linearly w T over limited T range    Ex) platinum resistance thermometer-measures T by measuring change in resistance of conductor ○ Principle of thermometer measured by resistance formula above ○ When device is immersed in vessel containing melting indium, its resistance inc to 76.8 ohms(Rmp). Find the mp(Tmp) of indium (RoTo= 50 ohms at 20C) ○ Indium heated further until reaches 235C, what is ratio of new current I in platinum to current Imp at mp? Back to resistance formula….  Measure T coeff of resistivity  Electrical E in a circuit… power  Electrical E in a circuit… power As charge moved thru battery from A to B, pot E of system inc by: … Chem E of battery dec by same amt As charge moved thru resistor, from C to D, it loses E in collisions w the atoms in the resistor When charge returns to A, net result is some chem E of battery delivered to resistor and caused T inc …rate of E lost is power: From ohms law(delta V=IR), alternate power forms: Power unit: Watts ….I in Amperes, R in ohms, and voltage in V Kilowatt-hour: amt of time power is supplied 1kWh=3600s x 1000W=3.6x10 J 6 Ex) V applied across ends of nichrome heater wire w A and L… same V applied across ends of second nichrome heater wire w A and 2L. Which wire gets hotter? Shorter wire does bc R inc so P dec Ex) rank currents: Current proportional to power since pot diff same Current btwn pos/neg higher than thru other resistors in circuit bc power splits btwn other connected resistors but all goes back thru pos/neg part Ex) diameter of A > diameter B… lengths and resistivities are equal. For given V diff across ends, relationship btwn Pa and Pb? Pa>Pb bc diameter a larger so power dec Ex) light A 25W 120V and light B is 100W 120V…. Diff power when connected to constant 120V source Resistance of each? During what time interval does a 1C charge goes into bulb A? In what time interval does 1J pass into light A? Cost of running light A contn=inuously for 30 days assuming company sells at .11 per kWh?  Superconductors- direct drop in resistance w/out slowly going down… dec to 0 ○ Resistance os same as normal metal above certain T Tc ○ Suddenly drops to 0 at Tc

Why people love StudySoup

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Bentley McCaw University of Florida

"I was shooting for a perfect 4.0 GPA this semester. Having StudySoup as a study aid was critical to helping me achieve my goal...and I nailed it!"


"Their 'Elite Notetakers' are making over $1,200/month in sales by creating high quality content that helps their classmates in a time of need."
