Electric Current, I I = dQ/dt in Coulombs/s = Ampere (A) (direction convention is that of + charge flow) The actual flow direction of particles may be different from I: Semiconductors (electrons or + holes) Metals (electrons) Ionic solutions (+ or – ions, or both) DEMO

Resistance, R Macroscopic definition: Apply potential difference ΔV = V and measure I that flows: Define R: R = V/I in Volts/A = ohm, Ω (omega) V Question #1: R may depend on which parameters?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
