• 6. How does an Electrical Appliance Work? • To make an electrical appliance work, electricity must flow through it. • The flow of electricity is called an electric current. • The path along which the electric current moves is called the electric circuit.
• 7. What is an Electric Current??? electric cell connecting wire filament flow of electrons Definition: An electric current is the rate of flow of electric charges in a circuit.
• 8. Electric Charges • Electric charges are made up of positive charges (protons) and negative charges (electrons). • When these charges flow in a circuit, a current is produced.
• 9. How does electricity flow? • The battery in a circuit gives energy to the electrons and pushes them around a circuit, from the negative terminal of the cell, round the circuit and back to the positive terminal of the cell.
• 10. How to Measure Current? • The SI unit for electric current is ampere (A). • Smaller currents are measured in milliamperes (mA). 1 A = 1,000 mA 1 mA = 0.001 A • Different electrical components and appliances require different sizes of current to turn them on.
• 11. Instrument to Measure Current • An ammeter is an instrument used for measuring electric current.
• 12. Ammeter • It must be connected in series in the circuit. • Positive side of ammeter must be connected nearest to the positive terminal of the battery (electric cell), and vice versa.

• 24. Series Circuit • A series circuit connects the components one after the other • A single loop is formed • A break in any part of a series circuit stops the flow of current in the whole circuit.
• 25. Parallel Circuit • A parallel circuit divides into two or more branches. • The current divides and flows through each parallel branch. • If a component breaks or is removed, the other components remain on.

• 32. Voltage • An electric cell gives energy to the electrons and pushes them round a circuit. Voltage is a measure of how much energy the electrons receive. • Different voltages are supplied by different cells and batteries. 1.5 V Dry Cell 12 V Car Battery 9 V Dry Cell
• 33. How to Measure Voltage? • The SI unit for voltage is volt (V). • A voltmeter is an instrument used for measuring voltages.
• 34. Voltmeter • Voltmeters must be connected in parallel to the circuit. • The positive side of voltmeter is connected to the positive terminal of the cell, and vice versa.
• 35. Recall: Ammeter!!! • It must be connected in series in the circuit. • Positive side of ammeter must be connected nearest to the positive terminal of the battery (electric cell), and vice versa.
• 36. Electromotive Force (e.m.f) • Electromotive force is the same as voltage. • E.m.f refers to the amount of energy supplied by the electric source (eg. battery) to each unit of electric charge.
• 39. Potential Difference • (p.d) Remember Diffusion? • High  Low electric • Similarly, electric charges cell connecting wire will flow from a point of filament higher potential (energy) to lower potential flow of electrons •This difference in electric potential between 2 points in a circuit is known as the potential difference. It is the same as VOLTAGE also.

• 41. Resistance • When an electric current flows through a circuit, there will be some resistance that opposes it. (similar to friction) • It can be measuredRbyResistance V = dividing R= voltage by the current. I V = Voltage I = Current
• 42. Resistance • Good conductors of electricity have LOW RESISTANCE. (Eg. Metal objects) – Electricity is able to flow through them very easily • Poor conductors of electricity have HIGH RESISTANCE. (Eg. Wood, cloth) – Electricity is not able to
• 43. Resistance • The SI unit for resistance is ohm () • Different electrical components have different resistance • For example, nichrome wires have a higher resistance than copper wires. So should we use nichrome or copper to make wires?
• 44. Example 1 • An electric rice cooker operates at 240 V and uses a current of 8 A. What is the Voltage (V) of the rice cooker? resistance 240 = 240 V R= 8 Current (I) = 30  =8A V R= I

Electrical energy has been converted into heat energy. • The greater the resistance of the wire, the greater the amount of heat produced. This heating effect is used in common electrical appliances.

Which material, copper or nichrome, should be used for the heating element, and for the external wire?
