AC circuits: Familiarization of resistors, capacitor and inductor

Familiarization of resistors: Learning Objectives:


Explain the function of and unit of resistors Measure the value of a resistor Measure the tolerance of a resistor Explain the types of resistors

Resistors: Oppose the flow of current (electrons) Resistance is measured in Ohm 1000 Ohm resistor is shown as 1 k Ohm and 1000 K Ohm resistor is shown as 1 M Ohm

Types of resistors: Fixed Variable Fixed resistors: Carbon film, metal film, wire wound resistors (value of resistor is specified and cannot be changed) Variable resistors: Semi fixed completely variable, potentiometer (can be changed by rotating the wiper) Reading value of fixed resistors: Resistors are color coded as they are too small for the value to be written on them. There are 4 or 5 bands of color. Value of a resistor is decoded from these bands of color.

Reading value: Step 1:

If your resistor has four color bands, turn the resistor so that the gold or silver band is on the right hand side or the end with more bands should point left. Step 2: The first band is now on the left hand side. This represents the first digit. Based on the color make a note of the digit. In this case- 4 band its 5 and for 5 band its 2. Step 3: The second band represents the second digit. The colors represents the same numbers as did the first digit. In this case- 4 band its 6 and for 5 band its 3. Step 4: The third band divulgues how many zeros to add/divide to the first two numbers for a 4 band resistor. In this case- 4 band its 4 zeros to be added. So value is 560K. Step 5: The third band denotes the 3rd digit for a 5 band resistor. In this case -5 band its 7. So the value of the 5 band resistor is 237 Ohms as its multiplier digit is 0. Tolerance: The last band denotes the tolerance. So the value of the 4 band resistor it is +/- 1%.

Tolerance of a resistor is also an important property to consider A 100 Ohm resistor with a 10 % tolerance can mean its value can be any fixed value between 90 to 110 Ohms A 120 Ohm resistor with a 10 % tolerance can mean its value can be any fixed value between 108 and 132 Ohms So there is some overlap between 100 Ohm and 120 Ohm resistance in terms of its limits.

Mnemonic to remember:

Carbon film resistors: Most general purpose, cheap resistor Tolerance of resistance value is usually +/- 5 % Power ratings of 1/8 W, 1/4 W, and 1/2 W are usually used Con: Tend to be electrically noisy

Metal film resistor: Used when higher tolerance is needed, ie more value They have about +/- 0.05 % tolerance

Wire wound resistors: A wire wound resistor is made of metal resistance wire, and because of this they can be manufactured to precise values Also, high wattage resistors can be made by thick wire material Have very high power ratings

Familiarization of Capacitor: Learning Objectives: 1. 2. 3. 4. Provides definition of capacitance and name its unit Explain how capacitor can be constructed to give a particular value of capacitance Explain why capacitor has maximum working voltage Determine experimentally the energy stored in the capacitor

5. Identify the value and type of capacitor 6. Determine the polarity of terminals What is a capacitor? A capacitor is an electronic component which has a wide range of uses in various circuits due to their ability to store charge.

There are several types of capacitors which will vary in its construction but all will function in the similar way Construction of capacitor: The basic construction of all capacitor is that it consists of two parallel metal plates separated by an insulating medium (dielectric). An insulator is a medium which is non- conducting i.e. it shows high resistance to the path of letting to electric current flow through it.

For a capacitor the simplest type of capacitor used is air. Other types are oil or paper. Real capacitors are made by taking thin strips of metal foil and the appropriate dielectric medium and sandwiching them. Capacitor achieves large area (thus large capacitance) by taking a large area of foil sandwiching the insulating medium and rolling them in form of a cylinder. Capacitor is so called because of its capacity to store energy. Capacitor are marked by a value indicating its capacitance i.e. their ability to store charge. Capacitance can be thought of as the electrical capacity of the body. It is measured in Farads. Maximum working voltage: If the voltage across the capacitor plates is too high the insulator between the plates fails to insulate and charge passes from one plate to another. Capacitors are usually marked with the working voltage to avoid this situation. A good thumb rule is that never place a voltage to the capacitor which exceed two third of its maximum voltage especially in alternating current circuits. Function of capacitor: Consider a circuit set up i.e the capacitor is connected in series with the ammeter and the switch is closed. The ammeter will show 1. 2. 3. 4. Steady state reading A reading of zero Flip back and forth Flip on one side and come back to zero.

Now let us extend this by using a galvanometer on both sides of the capacitor and using a two way switch If the switch is connected to p then 1. 2. 3. 4. Neither moves Both flick briefly to left Both flick briefly to right They flick briefly in opposite directions

Now if the switch is connected to the o terminal: 1. 2. 3. 4. Neither moves Both flick briefly to left Both flick briefly to right They flick briefly in opposite directions

If instead of first moving it to p if its moved to o then it might be the possibilities as mentioned above.

From the behavior of the ammeter needle it suggests that the current first flows in one way and then it flows in the other direction when the switch is moved from p to o So this suggests that 1. 2. 3. 4. Equal amount of current flows off from one plate to the other More charge flows of from plate A onto B More charge flows of from plate B onto A No charge flows at all

Charging and discharging of capacitor: We can say that capacitor is charged when connected to P and discharged when connected to terminal O Charging: The plate of the capacitor that is connected to the negative terminal of the battery accepts electrons that the battery is producing. The plate of the capacitor that is connected to the positive terminal of the battery loses electrons to the battery. Once it is charged, the capacitor has the same voltage as that of the battery. Let us connect a battery a light bulb and a capacitor in series. What are the possibilities that are about to happen? 1. The bulb will glow as long as the battery is connected 2. It will never glow 3. It will first glow and then dimming of slowly and then finally turns off If we then remove the battery and replace it with a wire, current will flow one plate of the capacitor to the other. The bulb will glow initially and then dim as the capacitor discharges, until it is completely out. A static description of a capacitor behavior is understood by the expression Q = CV where Q is the total charge, C signifies how big the capacitor is and V is the voltage across it. The dynamic description i.e. the one which changes with time is given by the equation. I = dV/dt This is just time derivative of static description, C is the constant with respect to time and I is the rate at which charge flows. This essentially shows that the bigger the current the faster the capacitors voltage changes. Analogy: Think of capacitor as a tub that can hold charge. A tub of large diameter (C), holds a lot of water (Q) for a given height (V). If we fill the tub with a thin straw (small I) then water level V-

will rise slowly. If we use a large pipe (large V) then water level will rise faster. Similar for draining (discharging) tub. Of course a tub of larger diameter takes longer to fill than a tub of smaller diameter. Classification of Capacitors: Polarized: They have a positive and negative electrode. o Electrolytic o Tantalum o Super Un-Polarized: They dont have a positive and negative electrode indication o Ceramic o Multilayer ceramic o Polystyrene film o Polyester film o Polypropylene o Mica Electrolytic capacitor: Electrolytic capacitors are polarized and they must be connected the correct way round. It is easy to find the value of electrolytic capacitors because they are clearly printed with their capacitance and voltage rating. Tantalum capacitors: Tantalum bead capacitors are polarized and have low voltage ratings like electrolytic capacitors. Usually, the + symbol is used to show the positive component lead. Modern tantalum bead capacitors are printed with their capacitance, voltage and polarity in full. However older ones use a color-code system which has two stripes (for the two digits) and s spot of color for the number of zeros to give the value in F. Un-Polarized capacitors - small values upto 1 F:

Familiarization of inductor: Learning Objectives: Explain function of inductor Explain the factors influencing inductance Function of an inductor: The function of a value is to control the amount of fluid that flows through a pipe. In an electric circuit, the resistor is used to control the amount of current that flows through a conductor. Another device that controls the current is the inductor: However unlike the resistor that affects the current uniformly at all times, the inductor only affects currents when they are changing in value. Similarity with capacitor: Rate of change of voltage in a capacitor depends upon the current through it Rate of change of current in an inductor depends upon the voltage applied across it. Like capacitive current, inductive current is not simply proportional to voltage. Unlike the situation in a resistor, the power associated with inductive current (V times I) is not turned into heat but is stored as energy in the inductors magnetic field. V = L*dI/dt, Where, L is the inductance and is measured in henry. Putting a voltage across an inductor causes the current to rise as a ramp. 1 volt across 1 henry produced a current that increases at 1 amp per second Structure of an Inductor: It consists of a wire wound as a coil around a core. The core may consist of a air filled hollow tube or solid material.

Inductance: The amount of inductance in henries a coil has, is determined by the following factors:

Inductive Kick: An inductor is capable of producing a momentary voltage that is much higher than the voltage of the power source that supplied the current to create its magnetic field. This temporary voltage is called an inductive kick. Example of applications of inductive devices to provide an inductive kick is a combustion engine ignition system that creates the spark across the gap of the spark plug.
