Lecture 10 1/18 Electric Current Current is charges in motion rate at which net positive charges move through a cross sectional area dt dq t Q I units of current is ampere (A) 1 A = 1 C/s Current is a scalar, signed quantity, whose sign corresponds to the direction of motion of net positive charges by convention A A d J I J is current density , a vector with units (A/m 2 )

Lecture 10 3/18 EMF Electromotive Force An EMF device is a charge pump that can maintain a potential difference across two terminals by doing work on the charges when necessary (Volts) ] [ V Emf dq dW Emf Examples: battery, fuel cell, electric generator, solar cell, fuel cell, thermopile, … Converts energy (chemical, mechanical, solar, thermal, …) into electrical energy. Within the EMF device, positive charges are lifted from lower to higher potential. If work dW is required to lift charge dq ,
