@Electrons moving randomly very fast, bouncing off wire atoms but having an
\“ average direction parallel to the wire due to the fame exerted on the electrons by the
' . electric ﬁeld in the wire. .

with time in a sinusoidal manner. The power requirement of say a toaster will
therefore vary with time. Since, however, only average(rms) values are used in
alternating current calculations, what is the average poll/g; requirement of a toaster if
the rms value of the voltage dr0p(Vms) is 50.Vlwh'ile the rms value of the current ~

be substantially different. Thus, for the toaster in problem 8 in which the rms voltage
drop was 50.v, the actual peak (maximum) voltage drop is v a). .77” \I' 10'. Electric power originating from power stations is transmitted over long distances at
very high voltages. The reason for such high transmitted voltages is a). Keeps birds off the wires
b). Voltages at the power station are of the same magnitude and thus can be transmitted directly with no additional equipment. . transmitted voltages corresPond to low currents and thus 12R losses are kept to a minimum
