Electricity & Magnetism
FUNDAMENTAL TERMS
Potential difference (Vor E):
Charges interacting with each other to do
work by attraction or repulsion • Unit: volt (V)
Electric charge (Q or q):
Unit of electricity • Unit: coulomb (C)
Electric current (I):
Measure of electron flow • Unit: ampere (A)
Resistance (R):
Measure of opposition to current flow
• Found from Ohm’s Law; R = V/I
• Unit: ohm (Ω)
Electric energy (E):
E = VIt = Pt • Unit: joule (J), electron-volt (eV)
Electric power (P):
Rate of electric energy • P = VI, or P = V2/R,
or P = I2R• Unit: watt (W) or J/s, horsepower
(hp)
Frequency (f):
Cycles/second • f = 1/T
• Unit: hertz (Hz or s–1)
Capacitance (C):
Ability to store electric charge
• Unit: farad (F)
Inductance (L):
Ability of a conductor to induce voltage in
itself when the current changes
• Unit: henry (H)
Capacitive reactance (XC):
Opposition to flow of AC current due to
capacitance in circuit • XC= 1/(2πfC)
• Unit: ohm (Ω)
Inductive reactance (XL):
Opposition to flow of AC current due to
inductance in circuit • XL= 2πfL
• Unit: ohm (Ω)

CURRENT FLOW
• Conventional flow is used in
North America; current flow is
used in Europe

Loved by over 2.2 million students

Over 90% improved by at least one letter grade.

Leah — University of Toronto

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Description
This Guide is another one of the many products that effectively advances one’s knowledge of a distinct aspect of the physical sciences. The basic of the properties of electricity and electrical circuits are established in a chart that provides helpful graphic aids. Magnetism, electromagnetism, and the laws governing the conduction of an electric current are each provided
