Ohms Law
As we just discussed, a resistor is a conductor with a
specified resistance. It has that same resistance no matter
what the magnitude and direction (polarity) of the applied
potential difference are.
Other conducting devices, however, might have resistance
that change with the applied potential difference.
First, we must define how to assign polarity to a terminal and
how to describe current direction.
The terminal with higher potential is
given a positive sign, while the
terminal with lower potential is given
a negative sign.
The current will flow from higher
potential to lower potential. This is
taken as direction of positive current.

Ohms Law
The i-V plot of a 1000 resistor
is shown next.
The slope of the line (i/V) is the
same for all V.
This means that the resistance
of the device is independent of
the magnitude and polarity of V.
The i-V plot of a pn junction
diode is shown next.
The relation between i and V is
not linear. The slope of the line
(i/V) varies throughout V.
This means that the resistance
of the device depends on the

Ohms Law
Ohms law:
A conducting device obeys Ohms law when the resistance of
the device is independent of the magnitude and polarity of the
applied potential difference. Otherwise, it does not obey
Ohms law.
Resistors obey the Ohms law.
Diodes do not obey the Ohms law.

## Power in Electric Circuits

The figure below shows a circuit consisting of
a battery, connected by wires to an
unspecified conducting device.
The wires are assumed to have negligible
resistance.
The unspecified device might be a resistor, a
rechargeable battery, a motor, or some other
device.

The rate at
which energy is transferred from the battery to the
unspecified device is given by:

## Power in Electric Circuits

The principle of conservation of energy tells
us that the decrease in electric potential
energy from a to b is accompanied by a
transfer of energy to some other form.
If the unspecified device is a motor, the
energy is transferred as work done on the

## Work, Energy, and Emf

Charge carriers will only flow through a conductor if we
establish a potential difference between its two ends.
To produce a steady flow of charge, we need a charge
pump, a device that maintains a potential difference between
a pair of terminals by doing work and the charge carriers.
Such a device is called an electromotive force device (emf
device).
Emf devices come in various kinds. All transform one source
of energy into electrical energy.
A common emf device is the battery, electric generator, solar
cells, and fuel cells.

## Suppose we start at any point in the circuit above and

proceed in either direction.
As we move, we add algebraically the potential differences
that we encounter.
When we return to our starting point, we must also have

## Ideal and Real Battery

The figure below left shows a real battery, with internal
resistance r, wired to an external resistor of resistance R.
The internal resistance r of the battery is the electrical
resistance of the materials that build the battery and thus
unremovable.

## Trivia: Switching Theory

There is a room with one locked door and closed windows.
Inside the room is a light bulb. Outside the room there are
three switches.
You are allowed to flip any switches as many times as you
wish. But, you may only open the door and enter the room
once.
How do you find out which switch turns on the light?

## Potential Difference Between Two Points

To find the potential between any two points in a circuit, we
start at one point and go through the circuit to the other point,
following any path.
Along the way, the changes in potential we encounter must

## Ammeter and Voltmeter

An instrument used to measure current is called an ammeter.
It should be connected serially, means the current to be
measured must pass through the meter.
An instrument used to measure potential difference is called a
voltmeter. To find the potential difference between any two
points, the voltmeter should be connected in parallel, means
the voltmeter terminals are connected between those points.
