Highly Damped LCR No oscillations when LC L R 1 2 But we can force the LCR circuit to oscillate by driving the circuit with a oscillating emf. Our primary goal in ch 31 is to understand the (series) LCR driven by a sinusoidal emf. Like a pendulum in thick molasses Like a car with new shock absorbers

Question #1 Why do we power our houses and factories with AC and not DC? 1. DC is more dangerous in terms of electrocution 2. AC can be transformed to higher or lower voltages 3. AC current does not drain electrons like DC 4. DC does not work well at low voltages 5. People trusted Thomas Edison more than George Westinghouse

Transformers ξ p s s p p s s s s p p s s p p N N V or V N N V and N V dt d N V hence dt d N V dt d N V = = = Φ = Φ - = Φ - = = , 100 years ago AC (Westinghouse) beat out DC (Edison) as the US power standard, primarily because AC voltages can be easily transformed up and down. ξ(t) p s p p s p s s s p p I N N I V V I thus V I V I = = = Energy conservation The “turns ratio” N s /N p is the important parameter here. DEMO
Question 2 Transformers are often made of laminated iron sheets rather than a solid block of iron because: 1. this increases magnetic permeability 2. eddy currents are reduced 3. the transformer can run hotter 4. it is easier to build
