Questions:
1. Which situation represented the largest current, I?
2. Which situation represented the largest resistance, R?
3. Which situation is capable of the most power, P?
4. Which situation would take the least amount of time to move equal current?
CASTLE Assignment #1 - WHAT DO THE BULBS DO TO MOVING CHARGE?
AC/DC – not just a band!
AC – alternating current, the direction the charge flows switches. In between each switch, the lights actually
go off. Why don’t we see the lights flicker?
DC – direct current moves from one end to another. Batteries have fixed positive and negative ends. The +
end pushes current, the – end pulls. What happens when you switch the batteries around in a flashlight?
60 Hz – Hertz (Hz) measures frequency. 60 Hz means 60 reversals/second. American speed.
A resistor is something that resists letting current flow through. It’s like putting your thumb over the end of a
water hose. Some examples of resistors are:

CASTLE Assignment #2 - INVESTIGATION TWO: COMPARING RESISTANCE
Sometimes resistors are used just to reduce the current in a wire. These resistors have different colored bands,
like a numbering code, telling you how resistive it is.
Salt and water can both lower the resistance of your body to electricity. Combined, saltwater can lower your
skin’s resistance from about 500,000Ω down to about 100Ω. How do lie detectors work?
GSR – Galvanic Skin Response – a measure of the skin’s conductivity
ΔV – potential difference (aka, voltage); measured in volts (V); how much pressure is pushing the current;
the energy source - the ability to do work based on the difference between charges at one location compared to
the charge at another location. Usually measured from one side of something, like a light bulb or a battery, to
the other side. Which can unleash more energy in the same amount of time, a 1.5m wide waterfall or a 9m wide
waterfall?
Which has a greater difference between ends, a 9V battery or a 1.5V D battery?
Which can release more energy in the same amount of time, a 9V battery or a 1.5V D battery?
Why are there so many kinds of 1.5V batteries? (AAA, AA, C, D)
P – electric power; measured in watts (W); the rate at which current, I, is changed to potential difference, ΔV.
Which uses more power, a 40W bulb or a 100W bulb?
Which one converts energy from an electrical form to a different form of energy the fastest?
What forms of energy does a light bulb convert electrical energy into?

Electric companies sell energy, not power. Your electric bill is measured in kilowatts hour, kw x hr.
(Electrical Energy = Power x Time) 1kWhr = 3.6 x 106 Joules
New Equations! Yay!
Remember: m (milli) = 10-3, µ (micro) = 10-6, p (pico) = 10-12
E = Pt
Ohm’s and Watt’s Laws
Practice:
Use the equation in the
outer ring to find the
variable in the inner
circle.

Ohm’s Law, btw)

Series
Parallel
Have to go through each resistor to get to
another. If one goes out, they all go out.
Can get to any resister w/o going through any other.
If one goes out, the others stay on.
Resisters in series equation: Req = R1 + R2 + R3…
Resisters in parallel equation:
Current in series equation: I = I1 = I2 = I3 …
Current in parallel equation: I = I1 + I2 + I3…
Potential difference series: V = V1 + V2 …
Potential difference parallel: V = V1 = V2 …
Remember: when you take the inverse of a variable, it goes under 1. Ex the inverse of R is 1/R.

use the same voltage. Voltage adds in series
and voltage drops should add to the battery
