Physics 201- Introduction to Electricity & Magnetism
October 14- Introduction to Ohm's Law






  Test corrections are due at the beginning of class on Friday- NO EXCEPTIONS. 
  • To earn points, explanations of what was wrong (with the correct solution) need to be provided. 
  • If you scored lower than 70, you must discuss the test with me to earn the points.  Others are more than welcome to talk with me about the test, but aren't required. 
  • You can earn up 25% of your missed points. 
Today we'll begin looking at circuits where we now allow the charges to move about.
  • Define current
  • Discuss what is happening at the microscopic level
  • Define resistance
  • Ohm's law (which we've already seen in lab)
  • Emf- perhaps the most misnamed quantity around
  • Conservation of energy
  • Define power
