Can secondary cell can be described in circuit simulator?? With other symbols like capacitor. Also I wonder if there's a program that provide secondary cell(like Li-ion battery). Please help me
I'm trying to better understand the physics of how earth ground works.
In circuit analysis and other electronic courses they usually present a conceptual picture like below where the earth is viewed as a path that completes a circuit? In this conceptual view, the current travels on the...
Let us connect a battery of potential difference V to a wire. There is no resistance. Nothing!
Now the battery creates some potential difference and the charges in the conducting wire move due to the Electric field created in the conductor by the battery. So, as the charge moves, its potential...
My understanding of emf
Let us consider 2 parallel plates with charges (opp. but equal in magnitude) stored on it. When we connect both the plates from the outer side, the electrons from the lower potential (i.e., negatively charged plate) moves to the higher potential (positively charged plate)...
Given the total angles in the x direction, I set up this:
(mg/cos(x))*sin(x)-Fe=0
then isolated for x:
mgtan(x)=(kq^2)/(2*sin^2x)
sin^2(x)*tan(x)=(kq^2)/(2mg)
From here I am stuck. How do I go forward when x is contained in two different trig functions on the left?
I know how to calculate the power output and input by analyzing the current in put and output with multimeters and using the formula P=VI. But P_out is obviously incomparably smaller than P_in so the efficiency would suck this way. Is there a better way to do this??
Is emf the work done to move a positive charge from LOWER potential to HIGHER potential to maintain the potential difference or else the charges move from higher potential to lower potential and will reach a point where the potential is the same between the two points and the charge will stop...
This page claims that "[t]he electric field outside the sphere is given by: ##{E} = {{kQ} \over {r^2}}##, just like a point charge". I would like to know the reason we should treat the sphere as a point charge, even if the charges are uniformly distributed throughout the surface of the...
I see that ##V_{ac}=V_{ab}+V_{bc}##, with ##V_{ab}=I_1R_1=I_2R_2## and ##V_{bc}=I_3R_3##.
However, I don't see how to express mathematically the maximum value of ##V_{ac}##. Could someone please help me with this task?
Consider the following experiment: from a lacquered copper wire we cut off twenty to thirty pieces of about 10 cm. From them we form a bundle of parallel wires and connect the two ends with one more wire each. The other ends of these two wires are connected to a sensitive analog ammeter. We hold...
I assume that because there is a resistance, the polarity of the voltage must be the same as the charge flow, and thus the current, in order for energy to flow in the same direction.
For instance, could I use the example of a light bulb (the resistor) plugged into AC lines; we know that if the...
"of the two types of solutions which the Maxwell equations yield for the wave

What is/are the potential or theoretical effect on electricity due to reversal of planetary magnetic field? Would circuitry continue to function or would knowledge and understanding need re-evaluating as a result of a reversal of our magnetic field on planet Earth?
Note: this is not a homework...
Hi,
I’m an undergraduate student interested in cognitive processes. I’m about to ask a very interdisciplinary question, and so hopefully I can find a physicists that can take on the challenge.
What is the fundamental reason behind why modern electronic computers (transistor computers) are...
Hi,
I understand mathematically why using low resistance results in a greater heating effect. Could someone give an intuitive and microscopic picture of why the current contributes more to a greater power dissipation by the resistor rather than the resistance contribution to the power...
Hi all. I'll get to the point. I've been interested in electricity since I was in college. Concepts such as current and resistance seemed easy to grasp for me but voltage remains a little bit obscure. It's thanks to this forum (specially forum members Jim Hardy r.i.p and SophieCentaur, sorry if...
Assume that a resistor R charges a capacitor C, whose other terminal is connected to the ground.
The charge at time t = 0 is assumed to be null and the supply voltage is equal to V.
We have, as is well known, ##i = \frac{V}{R} e^{-\frac{t}{RC}}##. Integrating ##\frac{i^2}{R}## between t = 0 and...
(i) Dividing the rod into thicknesses of dx we get discs of area A with lengths=dx so using (****) we have the resistance of a typical disc (between point x' and x'+dx) as:
(1) ##R(x'dx)=\frac{dx}{g(x)A}##
(ii) Using (1) and (*) and the integrating from a to b of the entire rod we get...
Hi, I'm trying to make a realistic scene, in which water is kept under constant electrical charge. If the power is around 75 milliamps, and it's in a stream about twenty feet across by ten feet deep, would this affect water temperature? Thanks!
So far what i figured out is that R2 and R3 are in parallel, R1 and LDR in parallel. And these two parallel circuits are parallel to each other ( tell me if im wrong)
The voltmeter has to read 0 but im not sure how i can achieve that. Is there a rule where when the resistance of each side is...
I'm a bit confused as to why can't you transmit AC current over a single wire.
For instance, say you have an AC generator which induces potential difference at different points of the wire and thus, creating current. Downstream, the wire can be split and applied to a load. When the wire is...
I am a high school teacher and we were discussing waves and electricity in class today. One of my students asked me if electricity is a longitudinal wave or not and I had no idea how to answer.
So, I realize that electric fields are what drive electrons to move through conducting wires, but...

Hi! I've been struggling with this.
Original exercise here: Find the value of Iy when R=0. And the value of Vx when R is infinite.
For the first part of the question I did this since R=0:
I've tried to solve this circuit and I get that Iy and I5 are 0 A, and this can't be possible since Iy...
Hi everyone. I was just out in my back garden and was watching the water from someone's shower pour down the pipe and out into a drain. I was thinking if all of the used water from my house just goes down a drain then why not try make use of it.
If the water system continues after use and takes...
Homework Statement
The circuit is the one in "Fig.4"
I need to calculate equivalent resistance between A and B. This is what I've tried:
I think that the first resistor is shorted by that wire connected between A and E. Their answer looks like this, in fig 2.2.1. I'm not sure if their...

Calculate the required voltage to produce a electric arc between 2 iron nails (distance: 3cm).
I´ve read in the internet that you need 1 kV per mm. But how can I calculate this value, that I need 1kV per 1mm?
