Have a discussion in class about ways of saving electric power in the home. Self test 1 A 1000 W microwave oven cooks a bowl of porridge in 4 minutes. 31 p per kWh, what is the cost of cooking the porridge? 2 The 2 kW heater of a fan-heater is found to be switched on for 20% of the time. The fan, runs all the time and takes 10 W. 9 p per kWh, what is the daily cost of running the fan-heater for an 8-hour day? 5 kW. Use this value in the formula. 6 = 38 p 25 Electronics — A First Course 9 Sources of energy Energy can not be created.

14 What is the output if the input is reduced to 3 V? 15 What is the output if the resistors are exchanged? 5 V, given an input of 9 V. 8 V, given an input of 12 V. 18 State the equation that describes Ohm’s Law. If a voltage of 5 V is applied to a resistor and the current through the resistor is 61 mA, what is the resistance of the resistor? 2 kW electric kettle runs on the 230 V mains, what is the resistance of its heating element? 20 A coil has a resistance of 200 Ω. What voltage is required to produce a current of 400 mA through it?

Its potential energy at point B is equal to the work that must be done to move it to B. This we have seen is 20 joules per coulomb. Whatever charge we move from A to B takes 20 J/C. This is the electrical potential at B relative to A. We have a special name for the unit of potential, instead of J/C. We call it a volt, symbol V. So, in this example, the potential at B relative to A is 20 V. Note that potential (or ‘voltage’) is always measured relative to some other point. For convenience, we often take the Earth as zero potential.
