Chapter 4 battery and bulb

  1. 1. Battery and Bulb<br />
  2. 2. Get one wire, one battery, and one bulb.<br />Using this equipment, try to make the bulb light.<br />Keep trying if you don’t get it right away. Think about different ways you can connect the battery, the bulb, and the wire.<br />As you try each different arrangement, draw it on the piece of paper. Draw arrangements both that lighted the bulb and that did not light the bulb.<br />Find out 4 different ways<br />Can you light the bulb? <br />
  3. 3. Battery<br />Device that converts chemical energy to electrical energy<br />A combination of two or more electrochemical cells <br /> ( negative electrode and positive electrode)<br />
  4. 4. Electricity: A variety of phenomena resulting from the presence and flow of eclectic charge<br />Circuit: pathway which allows electricity to flow<br /><ul><li>Closed circuit: pathway in which all components are connected to allow electricity to flow
  5. 5. Open circuit: pathway in which all components are not connected / does not allow electricity to flow
  6. 6. Short circuit: closed circuit where electricity travels along an unintended, alternative path </li></ul> => cause circuit damage, overheating, fire or explosion<br />Electric Circuit<br />
  7. 7. <ul><li>Series circuit:
  8. 8. A circuit in which all parts are connected in a single loop
  9. 9. There is only one path for electric charges to follow, so the charges moving through a series circuit must flow through each part of the circuit.
  10. 10. All the bulbs in a series circuit share the same current.
  11. 11. What if there is any break in the circuit? </li></ul> => The charges will stop flowing.<br />Electric Circuit (Cont.)<br />
  12. 12. <ul><li>Parallel circuit:
  13. 13. There are at least two independent paths for electric charges to follow, so each branch of the circuit can work by itself.
  14. 14. The bulbs in a parallel circuit do not have the same current.
  15. 15. What will happen to the other bulbs if one of the bulbs is removed from its bulb holder? </li></ul> => They are still working because charges still run through the other branches. <br />Electric Circuit (Cont.)<br />
  16. 16. Bulb Observation <br />Glass Bulb<br />Low pressure inert gas<br />Tungsten filament<br />Contact wire<br />Contact wire<br />Support wires<br />Glass mount / support<br />Base contact wire<br />Screw threads<br />Insulation<br />Electrical foot contact<br />
  17. 17. Conductor: a substance through which electrical charges can easily flow<br />Insulator: a material through which electric charges cannot move<br />
  18. 18.
  19. 19. Electricity does not come from the light switch on the wall; it comes from power generating plants. <br />More than half of the electricity that is used in the US is provided by burning coal. <br />One ton (2,000 pounds) of coal can produce 2,500 kilowatts (kwh) of electricity.<br />About 7,500 pounds of coal is mined every year for every person in the US, most to produce electricity. <br />Find your state’s source of electricity from the Energy Information Administration<br />Electricity & Sources of it<br />

  23. 23. A form of energy released by an atom <br />Electromagnetic radiation of a wavelength<br />What is the light?<br />

  25. 25. Conductor<br /><br />
  26. 26. Structure of the Bulb<br />

  31. 31. Container: A steel can housing the cell’s ingredients to form the cathode, a part of the electrochemical reaction.<br />Cathode: Manganese dioxide mixture and carbon. Cathodes are the electrodes reduced by the electrochemical reaction.<br />Separator: A non-woven, fibrous fabric which separates the electrodes.<br />Anode: Powdered zinc metal. Anodes are the electrodes that are oxidized. <br />Electrodes: Where the electrochemical reaction takes place.<br />Electrolyte: A potassium hydroxide solution in water. The electrolyte is the medium for the movement of ions within the cell and carries the ionic current inside the battery. <br />Collector: A brass pin in the middle of the cell that conducts electricity to the outside circuit. <br />Battery Parts<br />
