Physics 102: Lecture 5, Slide 4 Physical Resistor Resistance: Traveling through a resistor, electrons bump into things which slows them down. R = ρ L /A ρ : Resistivity: Density of bumps L : Length of resistor A : Cross sectional area of resistor Ohms Law I = V/R Cause and effect (sort of like a=F/m) potential difference cause current to flow resistance regulate the amount of flow Double potential difference double current I = (VA)/ ( ρ L) A L
Preflight 5.1 Two cylindrical resistors are made from the same material. They are of equal length but one has twice the diameter of the other. 1.
