    Energy & Electricity Energy & Electricity Presentation Transcript

    • Energy & Electricity Year 9 module on Electricity as a convenient form of energy © N.R.Wheeler, 2004
    • Energy Resources © N.R.Wheeler, 2004 Wind Fossil Fuels Solar Nuclear Hydroelectric Geothermal
    • Energy Types © N.R.Wheeler, 2004 Gravitational Potential : due to height Chemical Potential : found in food and fuels Sound : produced by the voice Thermal : hot objects Light : bright objects Magnetic Electric
    • Energy © N.R.Wheeler, 2004 Resources Types Note : Coal, Oil and Gas = Fossil fuels Magnetic Electrostatic Chemical Elastic (spring) Kinetic (movement) Gravitational Potential Nuclear Electrical Sound Light Thermal (heat) Geothermal Solar Biomass Hydroelectric Wave Wind Nuclear Gas Oil Coal
    • Measuring Current © N.R.Wheeler, 2004 Current is measured in units called ‘amperes’ or ‘amps’. Current is measured using an ‘Ammeter’. Ammeters are always connected in SERIES with all the other components in a circuit.
    • CURRENT FLOW © N.R.Wheeler, 2004 Current measurements Ammeter 1 = 3.0 amps Ammeter 2 = 1.5 amps What are the readings on the other ammeters? Hint : the length of the wires makes no difference and you cannot lose current in a circuit ! NOTE : the series connection of each ammeter.
    • Measuring Voltage © N.R.Wheeler, 2004 Voltage is measured using a ‘voltmeter’. Voltage is measured in units called ‘Volts’. Voltmeters are always connected in PARALLEL to the component being measured in a circuit. NOTE : the main circuit has components in series.
    • VOLTAGE SUM © N.R.Wheeler, 2004 Voltage measurements Voltmeter 1 = 1.5 volts Voltmeter 2 = 0.9 volts What is the voltage across the resistor, voltmeter 3 ? Hint : The total must be the same as the supply voltage. NOTE : the main circuit has components in series.
    • Series and Parallel © N.R.Wheeler, 2004
      • SERIES CIRCUITS
      • Components one after the other
      • Same current through all components
      • Different voltages across each component
      • Energy of supply shared
      • PARALLEL CIRCUITS
      • Components side by side
      • Different current through each components
      • Same voltages across each component
      • Energy of supply identical
    • WATER CIRCUIT MODEL © N.R.Wheeler, 2004
      • Which part represents :-
      • a) battery
      • b) wires
      • resistance
      • switch
      What is wrong with the model ?
    • SKI LIFT MODEL © N.R.Wheeler, 2004
      • Which part represents :-
      • wires
      • resistance
      • current
      • voltage
      What is wrong with the model ?
    • Voltaic Pile (battery) © N.R.Wheeler, 2004 A battery is a collection of cells that converts chemical to electrical energy.
    • Power Station © N.R.Wheeler, 2004 Overall chemical energy is converted into electrical energy, which is a convenient form for a consumer.
    • Sankey Diagram © N.R.Wheeler, 2004 The width of the arrow represents to proportion of energy that is supplied (100%), used or wasted.
    • Wasted Energy © N.R.Wheeler, 2004 Very little of the supplied energy is useful in a light bulb.
    • Sound Electricity © N.R.Wheeler, 2004 Can you construct the two Sankey diagrams for the energy transfers involving a loudspeaker and a microphone. 30% Efficiency 10% Efficiency
    • Warming Energy © N.R.Wheeler, 2004 Can you draw the Sankey diagram for this room heater?
    • EFFICIENCY Fill in the unknown values. ? 72000 96000 Lift 120 ? 600 Food Mixer 10 10 ? Radio ? 1960 2000 Kettle 21 2 ? Fluorescent Bulb 98 2 100 Filament bulb Wasted Energy (J) Useful Energy (J) Energy Supplied (J) Appliance
