Unformatted text preview: Microscopic treatment: insight into the fundamental physical mechanism of circuit behavior. Not easy to measure directly E , u , Q, v . It is easier to measure conventional current, potential difference macroscopic parameters Need a link between microscopic and macroscopic quantities. Macroscopic Analysis of Circuits Many elements in a circuit act as resistors: prevent current from rising above a certain value. Goal: find a simple parameter which can predict V and I in such elements. Need to combine the properties of material and geometry. Resistance Conventional current: nAuE q v nA q I = = Different properties of the material Geometry Group the material properties together: I = q nu ( ) AE J = I A = q nu ( ) E = E (A/m 2 ) Current density: Conductivity = m V A nu q Conductivity Combining the properties of a material The conductivity of tungsten at RT is =1.8 . 10 7 (A/m 2 )/(V/m) and it decreases 18 times at a temperature of a glowing filament (3000 K). The tungsten filament has a radius of 0.015 mm. What is E required to dive 0.3A through it? E A I J = = A I E = E = 0.3 A 1.8 10 7 (A/m 2 )/(V/m) / 18 ( ) 7.1 10 10 m 2 ( ) = 424 V/m Exercise E Au n q v A n q I Cl 1 1 1 1 1 1 = = E Au n q v A n q I Na 2 2 2 2 2 2 = = E Au n q E Au n q I I I Cl Na 1 1 1 2 2 2 + = + = J = I A = q 2 n 2 u 2 + q 1 n 1 u 1 ( ) E = E 1 1 1 2 2 2 u n q u n q + = Conductivity with two Kinds of Charge Carriers = f i l...
