Current Electricity Current Electricity The branch of Physics which deals with the study of electric charges in motion is called current electricity.

Electric current The flow of electric charges in a particular direction constitutes electric current. The electric current is defined as the rate of flow of charges across any cross sectional area of a conductor is known as electric current.

Where, I = electric current q= charge passed through any cross section of conductor t= time If the rate of flow of charge is not uniform then current varies with time and is given by-

Note Current is a scalar quantity. The direction of conventional current is taken as the direction of flow of positive charges or opposite to the direction of flow of electrons. Units of electric current: Ampere (in S.I. System)- One ampere represents the passage of one coulomb of charge per second. An electric current is due to the drift of 1. Electrons in a metallic conductor. 2. Positive and negative charges in an electrolyte. 3. Electrons and ions in gases in discharge tubes. 4. Electrons and holes in a semiconductor.

How Electric Current Flow in the Conductor When no potential difference is applied across a conductor, the electrons are in random motion. The average velocity of electrons is zero. Thus the motion of electrons does not constitute any transport of charge in any direction. The current in the conductor is zero. When potential difference is maintained (i.e. battery is connected) across a conductor, the electrons gain some average velocity in the direction of positive potential (towards positive terminal of battery). And thus current is set up in the conductor.

Ohm’s Law It states that physical conditions like temperature pressure etc. remaining constant, the current flowing through a conductor is always directly proportional to the potential difference across the conductor. i.e.

Where R is constant of proportionality, called resistance of conductor. From (1)

So, if we plot a graph between V and I it will be a Straight line as shown in figure.

Resistance It is the property of a body due to which it opposes the flow of current through the conductor. It is equal to ratio of potential difference applied to the current flowing through the conductor.i.e.

Unit of R: unit of resistance is ohm (Ω) in S.I. system. One Ohm: Resistance of a conductor is said to be one ohm if a potential difference of one volt produces one ampere current through it. Cause of Resistance: As we know that there are large numbers of free electrons in a conductor. When a potential difference is applied across the ends of conductor the free electrons moves with higher energy and collide among themselves and with the atoms of conductor and causes obstacle For free study material: notes/MCQ/Assignments etc of 9th, 10th,10+1, 10+2,NDA,TET, AIEEE/IIT-JEE Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics visit our website: www.rsnotes.in NOTES ALSO AVAILABLE FOR – NTSE, BANKING, SSC, HCS and other competitive Exams.

to flow of current. This obstacle produces the opposition to flow of electrons i.e. produces resistance.

Conductance (G) The reciprocal of resistance is known as conductance. i.e. G= Unit of conductance is Simen or mho.

Resistivity () As we know, resistance of a conductor (R) is (i)

Directly proportional to length(l) of conductor i.e. Rl Inversely proportional to the area of cross-section (A) of the conductor R

Combining these two points, we have R = Where, is the constant of proportionality, called resistivity of the material. If l = 1, A = 1 then = R So, is defined as the resistance of a material having unit length and unit area of crosssection. depends on the nature of material, but not on the dimensions of the material. Unit of is ohm-metre

Conductivity () The reciprocal of resistivity () is called conductivity () i.e. = Unit of conductivity is Simen per metre

Current density (J) The electric current per unit area ,taken normal to the current, is known as Current Density.

Drift Velocity When no Electric field is applied across a conductor, the electrons are in random motion. The average velocity of electrons is zero. Thus the motion of electrons does not constitute any transport of charge in any direction. The current in the conductor is zero. But when Electric field is applied, the free electrons at negative end experience a force F = eE in a direction opposite to the electric field i.e. towards positive end. Thus due to collision, there act backward force on electron. So, the electron drift slowly towards positive end with a constant average velocity called, drift velocity vd So, drift velocity is defined as the velocity with which free electrons get drifted towards the positive terminal, when electric field is applied is known as drift velocity Expression for drift velocity: If

Note: the conductors which do not obey ohm’s law completely are called non-ohmic conductor e.g. semiconductors, and diodes.

RESISTIVITY OF VARIOUS MATERIALS Depending on resistivity, the materials can be classified as conductor, semiconductors and insulators. The conductors (metals) have low resistivities in the range of 10-8 Ωm to 10-6 Ωm . The insulators have very high resistivities in the range of 108 Ωm to 1014 Ωm. The semiconductors have resistivities between conductors and insulator i.e. in the range of 10-2 Ωm to 104 Ωm.

Temperature Dependence of Resistance As we know for metallic conductor R= i.e. R So, when temperature of a conductor is increased, the thermal energy of electron increases. Due to which the frequency of collision of free electrons with atoms or ions also increase and hence decreases. Hence, resistance increases. If

R0 = resistance of conductor at 00C & Rt = resistance of conductor at t0C

And

t = rise in temperatue.

Then

Rt = R0 ( 1 + t)

Unit of = 0C-1 or kelvin-1 For metals: is positive. So, from (1) Rt > R0 Therefore resistance of metals increases with rise of temperature.(this implies that conductivity decreases with rise in temperature.) For insulators and semiconductors: is negative. So, from (1) Rt < R0 Therefore resistance of insulators or semiconductors decrease with rise of temperature.(this implies that conductivity increases with rise in temperature.) For Alloys: for alloys like Nichrome, Manganin etc is very-very small. So, from (1) Rt R0 Therefore resistance of alloys almost remains same with rise in temperature. That is why we use these alloys to make standard resistance coil. Similarly resistivity of a metallic conductor is given by

t = 0 ( 1 + t)

Combination is useful when internal resistance is equal to external resistance. Note : Ohm ‘s law is unable to give current in complicated circuits.

Kirchoff’s Law: Kirchoff’s gave two laws which are very useful to give current in complicated circuits. Kirchoff’s 1st law or Junction Law: It states that, the algebraic sum of the currents at any unction in a circuit is zero. i.e.

So, according to this law there is no accumulation of electric current at any junction (the points where wires meets in an electric circuit). By convention, the currents which flow towards a junction are taken as positive & the currents which flow away from the junction are taken as negative. From figure, we have-

Kirchoff’s 2nd Law or Loop Law: it states that , in any closed circuit, the algebraic sum of the products of the current and resistance of each part of the circuit is equal to the total emf in the circuit. i.e.

By convention, the product of current and resistance is taken as positive when we move in the direction of flow of current. The emf is taken positive when we move from negative to positive terminal through the cell and vice-versa. Applying Kirchoff’s to the circuit as shown in fig. For the loop ACDBA,

Construction: It is consist of long uniform wire of constantan or manganin stretched in 4 to 10 segment, each of one metre length. Te segments are stretched parallel to each other on a wooden board. The ends of the wire are fixed to Cu strips. A metre scale is fixed parallel to the wire.

Principle of Potentiometer An potential difference less than the total potential difference maintained across the potentiometer wire can be balanced against a convenient length of the potentiometer wire. The potential difference balanced is directly proportional to the length of the wire which balances the potential difference. Proof: Make the connections as shown in circuit diagram. Here E1 > E. I is constnt current. G is galvanometer. If the potential difference between A and J is equal to the emf of the cell, no current flows through the galvanometer. It shows zero deflection.
