Rogers: Lectures based on Halliday, Resnick and Walker’sFundamentals of Physics, Copyright 2005 by Wiley and Sons Ch 27: Circuits p705 - 723 (exclude 27-8:meters) 2 lectures An emf device is one which maintains a potential difference between a pair of terminals. It provides an emf, , => does work on the charge carriers. It must have a source of energy. emf = electromotive force (an outdated phrase). examples battery, electric generator, fuel cell thermopiles, solar cells, living systems (eels, people) Ch27-1/32 Work, energy, emf Represent the emf by an arrow from -ve to +ve terminal (i.e. from lower to higher potential). Circle on tail to distinguish from arrow for current direction. Current is same all around a circuit. Define emf of an emf device as amount of work done moving a charge dq from low to high potential terminal. An ideal emf device has no internal resistance so V = Real emf devices have internal resistance => so V < when current is flowing Ch27-2/32Material, including many figures, is used with permission of John Wiley and Sons, Inc.Material is not to be further distributed in any format and is subject to CopyrightProtection. 1

Hence: (for an ideal battery) Ch27-3/32 Calculating current in a single-loop circuit Potential Method Start at any point in circuit - go around in either direction, - add up potential differences. After a loop, the change in potential must be 0. Kirchhoff’s loop rule In general, the algebraic sum of changes in potential encountered in a complete traversal of any loop in a circuit must be zero. Start at point a where potential is Va. go clockwise. Potential difference across ideal battery is + . Potential drops across R (high to low potential) , i.e. V = -iR.
