ELECTROSTATICS CIRCUIT BASICS
ELECTRIC CHARGE, Q Circuits Made up of active and passive elements and their interconnecting
conducting paths
Elementary Charge Active Include sources such as batteries, DC generators, AC generators, and so on
• Charge is not fluid; it consists of multiple
elementary charges Elements
• Any charge q can be written as q = ne, Passive Include current controlling devices such as resistors, capacitors, inductors,
where n = positive or negative integer and Elements and so on

relation to the force between two charges path through which it circulates
Force: Proportional to the product of the Ohm’s Law I = V/R, where I is the current, V is the electrical potential difference, and
two charges; inversely proportional to the R is the resistance
square of the distance between them
Potential Difference (Electromotive Force, EMF)
Coulomb’s Law • In the case of direct current, Ohm’s law defines potential difference as the product of

ELECTRIC FIELD, E • Used to control flow of current through a circuit; here, R = V/I
Resistivity
