Q = VC = C I = dQ/dt εmaxsin(ωt) ε = εmaxsin(ωt) C I = VmaxωC cos(ωt) Amplitude = Vmax/XC where XC = 1/ωC is like the “resistance” of the capacitor XC depends on ω Physics 212 Lecture 20, Slide 3 Physics Inductors
dI/dt = VL = εmaxsin(ωt) ε = εmaxsin(ωt) L I =  Vmax/ωL cos(ωt) Amplitude = Vmax/XL where XL = ωL is like the “resistance” of the inductor XL depends on ω Physics 212 Lecture 20, Slide 4 Physics RL ACT
An RL circuit is driven by an AC generator as shown in the figure.
BB L Imax = Vmax/XL XL = ωL R
For what driving frequency ω of the generator will the current through the resistor be largest A) ω large B) Current through R doesn’t depend on ω C) ω small
Physics 212 Lecture 20, Slide 5 Physics Summary
R
Imax = Vmax/R V in phase with I
Because resistors are simple C Imax = Vmax/XC XC = 1/ωC V 90o behind I
Current comes first since it charges capacitor Like a wire at high ω L Imax = Vmax/XL XL = ωL Opposite of capacitor Like a wire at low ω
Physics 212 Lecture 20, Slide 6 Physics V 90o ahead of I Makes sense to write everything in terms of I since this is the same everywhere in a oneloop circuit: Vmax = Imax XC V 90o behind I Phasors make this simple to see Imax XL C εmax L R Vmax = Imax XL V 90o ahead of I Imax XC Imax R Vmax = Imax R V in phase with I Always looks the same. Only the lengths will change
