General Electricity

Definitions

Types of electricity: Static
vs

Dynamic. AC
vs

DC. High
vs

low pressure lines

SI units:
currenr

(A),
electr
. Potential (V),
resist (

), ..

Classification of substances according to
their electrical conductivity: conductors,
semi
-

conductors, insulators

Types of electricity

Static
vs

Dynamic

Clinical importance of static electricity

Direct
vs

AC current

Direct & Alternating Current

DC: Flows in one direction

AC: Periodically reverses its direction (sine
wave):

-
Wavelength: distance between
2
waves

-
Frequency: no. of waves/cycle

-
Velocity: wave length X Frequency

ELECTRICAL SI UNITS

Frequency: Hertz (Hz)= cycle/sec

Power: Watt (W)

Electrical current: Ampere (A)

Electrical Potential (EMF): Volt (V)=W/A

Electrical Charge: Coulomb (C)=As

Electrical Resistance (Impedance,
Reactance): Ohm (
Ω
)=V/A (
Ohm’s Law
)

Electrical Capacitance: Henry (H) =Vs/A

Electrical Conductivity

,
platinum
, gold, silver

Insulators: glass, plastic, rubber, wood,
mica,
porcelin
, ceramic

Semiconductors: Silicon,
germanium,
selenium

-
Used in: transistors,
thermistors
, diodes,
some transducers

-
Affected by temperature, e.g.
thermistors
