- The force between two charged bodies was studied by Coulomb in 1785.
- Coulomb’s law states that the force of attraction or repulsion between two point charges is directly proportional to the product of the charges and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. The direction of forces is along the line joining the two point charges. Let q1 and q2 be two point charges placed in air or vacuum at a distance r apart. Then, according to Coulomb’s law,
F αq1 q2/r2
orF = k×q1 q2/r2
where k is a constant of proportionality. In air or vacuum,
k =1/4πε0, where εo is the permittivity of free space (i.e., vacuum) value of ε0 is 8.854 × 10-12 C2 N-1 m-2.
Ohm’s Law (1827)
- George Simon Ohm established the relationship between potential difference and current, which is known as Ohm’s law.
- At a constant temperature, the steady current flowing through a conductor is directly proportional to the potential difference between the two ends of the conductor.
(i.e) I α V
Kirchhoff first law (current law)
Kirchhoff current law states that the algebraic sum of the currents meeting at any junction in 7 a circuit is zero.
Kirchoff’s second law (voltage law)
Kirchoff’s voltage law states that the algebraic sum of the
products of resistance and current in each part of any closed circuit is equal to the algebraic sum of the emf’s in that closed circuit. This law is a consequence of conservation of energy.
Resistance of a conductor is defined as the ratio of potential difference across the conductor to the current flowing through it. The unit of resistance is ohm (Ω)
Resistance – The electrical resistance of an electrical conductor is a measure of the difficulty to pass an electric current through that conductor. The inverse quantity is electrical conductance, and is the ease with which an electric current passes.
Any conductor’s resistance depends upon the following things
- Length of the conductor (L).
- Specific resistance of the nature material (Rho).
- Cross sectional area of the conductor(A).
Length Directly is Proportional to Resistance
R ∝ L
The resistance is directly proportional to the length
If the conductor length is longer then resistance is high so current flow is less.
Cross Sectional Area is inversely Proportional Resistance
R ∝ 1/A (or) R ∝ A-1.
Specific Resistance of the materials
The specific resistance of the material of a wire is determined by knowing the resistance (P), radius (r) and length (L) of the wire using the expression ρ =Pπr/L
|Material||ρ (Ωm) at 20°C||σ (S/m) at 20°C||Temperature coefficient (1/°C) x10^-3|
|Carbon (amorphous)||5×10−4 to 8×10−4||1.25 to 2×103||-0.5|
|10||Dirty water(salt water)||Conductor|
|28||Nichrome||Resistance material||10-4 Ωm|
Copper material ρ (of copper) = 1.7 x 10-8 Ωm (17 E-9 or 17 EXP-9 when entering it into your calculator in Standard Form, depending on which model you use), L (Length of cable) = 7m and d (Diameter of cable) = 0.5mm(500 E-6 or 500 EXP-6 metres in Standard Form. so Find the resistance??
- A (Cross Sectional Area of cable in square metres) = π(d/22) = 3.142 x ((500 EXP-6/2)2) = 196.4 EXP-9m2
- Therefore R = (ρL) / A = (17 EXP-9 x 7) / 196.4 EXP-9 = 605mΩ

Electrons flow in a conductor
Eg: water flow in a pipe line.
- 1amps= 6.25*1018=(6,250,000,000,000,000,000) electrons/second,
We define voltage as the amount of potential energy between two points on a circuit. One point has more charge than another. This difference in charge between the two points is called voltage. It is measured in volts, which, technically, is the potential energy difference between two points that will impart one joule of energy per coulomb of charge that passes through it (don’t panic if this makes no sense, all will be explained). The unit “volt” is named after the Italian physicist Alessandro Volta who invented what is considered the first chemical battery. Voltage is represented in equations and schematics by the letter “V”.
When describing voltage, current, and resistance, a common analogy is a water tank. In this analogy, charge is represented by the water amount, voltage is represented by the water pressure, and current is represented by the water flow. So for this analogy, remember:
- Water = Charge
- Pressure = Voltage
- Flow = Current
Consider a water tank at a certain height above the ground. At the bottom of this tank there is a hose.
Voltage, Current, Resistance, and Ohm’s Law
- V = Voltage in volts
- I = Current in amps
- R = Resistance in ohms

- A PN-junction diode is formed by joining together n-type and p-type silicon.
- In practice, as the n-type Si crystal is being grown, the process is abruptly altered to grow p-type Si crystal. Finally, a glass or plastic coating is placed around the joined crystal.
- The p-side is called anode and the n-side is called cathode.
- When the anode and cathode of a PN-junction diode are connected to external voltage such that the potential at anode is higher than the potential at cathode, the diode is said to be forward biased.
- –In a forward-biased diode current is allowed to flow through the device.
- •When potential at anode is smaller than the potential at cathode, the diode is said to be reverse biased. In a reverse-biased diode current is blocked.
