Physics 2213 Homework #5 Spring 2010 *** This assignment will be covered on Prelim Exam #1. *** Read: Chapter 23, all (section 23.5 for conceptual content); Chapter 26, sections 26.2 and 26.5 Basic Ideas: Electric Current, Voltage, Resistance Electric Potential Energy, Potential, Work, Power Resistors in Series and Parallel Kirchhoff's Circuit Rules Conservation of Energy & Electric Charge Math Skills: Algebra, Topology ("Connectedness") Conservative Vector Fields & Potentials Potential Gradient Learning Goals: (Be sure you understand where and how each goal in each assignment applies to our homework, discussion, lecture, and lab activities.) * Use Kirchhoff's Rules to relate and determine electric currents and voltages in circuits. * Recognize whether it is possible or not possible to reduce networks of electrical resistances to simpler equivalent forms using series and parallel resistance combinations. Do this reduction where possible and useful. * Determine properties of electric circuits (V, I, R, or P), and predict how those properties will change when components or connections are changed. * Calculate electric potential as a function of position in space, either using the Point-Charge Superposition Principle or from a known electric field.
