Phys 122 Introductory Physics II TUTORIAL 3 Electric Circuits. Key DC Current and Ohm’s Law. 1. The filament of a light bulb has a resistance of 580 . A voltage of 120 V is connected across the filament. How much current is in the filament? We know that V = IR . Therefore, I = V R = 120 V 580 = 0.21 A 2. A battery charger is connected to a dead battery and delivers a current of 6.0 A for 5.0 hours, keeping the voltage across the battery terminals at 12 V in the process. How much energy is delivered to the battery? First determine the total charge delivered to the battery using Equation 20.1: q = I t = (6.0 A)(5.0 h)[(3600 s)/(1 h)] = 1.1 × 10 5 C To find the energy delivered to the battery, multiply this charge by the energy per unit charge (i.e., the voltage) to get Energy = ( q ) V = (1.1 × 10 5 C)(12 V) = 1.3 × 10 6 J 3. In the Arctic, electric socks are useful. A pair of socks uses a 9.0-V battery pack for each sock. A current of 0.11 A is drawn from each battery pack by wire woven into the socks. Find the resistance of the wire in one sock. Ohm's law (Equation 20.2), V = IR , gives the result directly: R = V I = 9.0 V 0.11 A = 82 4. The resistance of a bagel toaster is 14 . To prepare a bagel, the toaster is operated for one minute from a 120-V outlet. How much energy is delivered to the toaster? Energy = V q Solving Equation 20.1 for q gives q = I t , which can be substituted in the previous result to give Energy = V q = VI t According to Ohm’s law (Equation 20.2), the current is I = V / R , which can be substituted in the energy expression to show that 1

This beam constitutes a current whose value is 0.50 μ A. (a) How many protons strike the target in 15 seconds? (b) Each proton has a kinetic energy of 4.9 × 10 –12 J. Suppose the target is a 15-gram block of aluminum, and all the kinetic energy of the protons goes into heating it up. What is the change in temperature of the block at the end of 15 s? The number N of protons that strike the target is equal to the amount of electric charge q striking the target divided by the charge e of a proton, N = ( q ) /e . a. The number N of protons that strike the target is 6 13 19 (0.50 10 A)(15 s) 4 7 10 1.6 10 C q I t N e e - - × = = = = × × . b.
