Q27.1 Voltage is a measure of potential difference, not of current. Surge implies a owand only charge, in coulombs, can ow through a system. It would also be correct to say that the victim carried a certain current, in amperes. Geometry and resistivity. In turn, the resistivity of the material depends on the temperature.

Q27.2

*Q27.3 (i) We require rL /AA = 3rL /AB. Then AA /AB = 1/3, answer (f ). (ii) rA2/rB2 = 1/3 gives rA / rB = 1/ 3, answer (e). *Q27.4 Originally, R = Answer (b). Q27.5 The conductor does not follow Ohms law, and must have a resistivity that is current-dependent, or more likely temperature-dependent. The amplitude of atomic vibrations increases with temperature. Atoms can then scatter electrons more efciently. (i) The current density increases, so the drift speed must increase. Answer (a). (ii) Answer (a). The resistance of copper increases with temperature, while the resistance of silicon decreases with increasing temperature. The conduction electrons are scattered more by vibrating atoms when copper heats up. Silicons charge carrier density increases as temperature increases and more atomic electrons are promoted to become conduction electrons.

Q27.7

Q27.8

*Q27.9 In a normal metal, suppose that we could proceed to a limit of zero resistance by lengthening the average time between collisions. The classical model of conduction then suggests that a constant applied voltage would cause constant acceleration of the free electrons. The drift speed and the current would increase steadily in time. It is not the situation envisioned in the question, but we can actually switch to zero resistance by substituting a superconducting wire for the normal metal. In this case, the drift velocity of electrons is established by vibrations of atoms in the crystal lattice; the maximum current is limited; and it becomes impossible to establish a potential difference across the superconductor. Q27.10 Because there are so many electrons in a conductor (approximately 1028 electrons/m3) the average velocity of charges is very slow. When you connect a wire to a potential difference, you establish an electric eld everywhere in the wire nearly instantaneously, to make electrons start drifting everywhere all at once.

*Q27.11 Action (a) makes the current three times larger. (b) causes no change in current. (c) corresponds to a current 3 times larger. (d) R is 1/4 as large, so current is 4 times larger. (e) R is 2 times larger, so current is half as large. (f) R increases by a small percentage as current has a small decrease. (g) Current decreases by a large factor. The ranking is then d > a > c > b > f > e > g. *Q27.12 RA =

PA = I A V = (V )2 /RA = (V )2 / 2 RB = PB / 2 Answer (f ).
*Q27.14 (i) Bulb (a) must have higher resistance so that it will carry less current and have lower power. (ii) Bulb (b) carries more current. *Q27.15 One amperehour is (1 C/s)(3 600 s) = 3 600 coulombs. The amperehour rating is the quantity of charge that the battery can lift though its nominal potential difference. Answer (d). Q27.16 Choose the voltage of the power supply you will use to drive the heater. Next calculate the V 2 . Knowing the resistivity of the material, choose a combination required resistance R as R of wire length and cross-sectional area to make = . You will have to pay for less A material if you make both and A smaller, but if you go too far the wire will have too little surface area to radiate away the energy; then the resistor will melt.

Then = 0 1 + (T 20.0C) , and = 1 + ( T 0C must both give the correct resistivity at any temperature T. That is, we must have:

Let a be the temperature coefcient at 20.0C, and be the temperature coefcient at 0C.

0 [1 + (T 20.0C )] = [1 + (T 0C )]
Setting T = 0 in equation (1) yields: and setting T = 20.0C in equation (1) gives:

= 0 1 ( 20.0C ) , 0 = [1 + ( 20.0C )]

Put from the rst of these results into the second to obtain:

## 0 = 0 [1 ( 20.0C )][1 + ( 20.0C )]

Therefore 1 + ( 20.0C =

which simplies to

[1 ( 20.0C)]

From this, the temperature coefcient, based on a reference temperature of 0C, may be computed for any material.

*P27.53 The original resistance is Ri = rLi/Ai. The new length is L = Li + d L = Li(1 + d ). Constancy of volume implies AL = AiLi so The new resistance is R = A= Ai Li Ai Li Ai = = L Li (1 + ) (1 + )
