Very informative powerpoint presentation on the difficult topic of potential divider circuits can be used for any spec, but specifically created for ocr gcse. Subject content for gcse physics sufficient coursework marks can be accumulated through investigations carried out as part of the double award lessons schemes of this type are particularly popular where the numbers taking separate sciences are very small latches, potential dividers) a2: processing waves (light waves, refraction. Ocr gateway gcse physics p6: electricity for gadgets 2 resisting dim the lights potential divider the voltage change across a resistor is known as the potential difference (volts) if the pd = 5 volts, this is the same as 5 joules per coulomb of charge or 5 joules of. Potential dividers these are used in particular with ldrs and thermistors to allow only a certain amount of pd to be taken from a circuit.
I'm stuck on a section in physics on potential dividers i was just going through the physics b aqa syllabus and there is a section in there that i am stuck on:- candidates should be able to compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of advances in electronic systems. Potential dividers & resistor combinations - gcse & a-level physics science shorts / education length: 12:58 quick view 25,355 potential dividers jack sheldrake 5 years ago internal resistance of a battery, emf, cell terminal voltage, physics problems the organic chemistry tutor 2 years ago. Electromagnetic induction electromagnetic induction is the production of voltage across a conductor moving through a magnetic field it underlies the operation of generators, all electric motors, transformers, induction motors, synchronous motors, solenoids, and most other electrical machines.
The voltage output therefore changes when the temperature changes and is given by the standard voltage divider formula shown example 1 : in the circuit above, if r2 = 1000 ω, and vs = 10 v, then the output voltage from the voltage divider will be 091 v when the temperature is 25 °c. Physics coursework emma sullivan does changing the ohms of resistor 1 affect the voltage out of a series circuit introduction in this investigation i have changed the ohms of resistor 1 because from my prelimary investigation it was the clearest set of results out of the four i completed. In this article i will go through all you need to know for physics as on chapter 2 this will include going over in order (i think) current, flow of charge per second, voltage (or potential difference), resistance in series and parallel, potential dividers, internal resistance and emf of a power supply, power calculations, work done, conductance, resistivity and conductivity. The potential divider a potential divider [ potential divider : device that uses two resistors to control the voltage in a circuit ] is used to produce the required voltage in a circuit.
Potential divider circuits: potential dividers are used to produce a required voltage 2 or more resistors in series increase the resistance of the circuit. - the relay isolates the low voltage in the sensing circuit from high voltage mains how does a relay use a small current in the coil to switch on a circuit in which a larger current flows - when a current passes through a coil, the iron armature is attracted. These are focussed around gcse electronic products course - ocr for further progression and more able students, there are more topics on the a-level page this page provides students and teachers with resources for. A potential divider is used to split the voltage of a circuit widely used for setting and adjusting the circuit, eg, in radios, games and toys you may find you need 6 volts for a circuit but you only have a 9 volt battery therefore you would use a potential divider add both resistors together.
Below are some potential dividers begin by following the instructions below to calculate voltages in them for each divider, do the following: 1 - check voltages top and bottom (to get the total voltages 2 - add up all the resistors to get the total resistance, r. Summary notes and past exam questions by topic for ocr (a) physics as and a-level module 4 - electrons, waves and photons. The salters gcse physics course (1993 – 2007) was based on the physics content from the double award science course, with the addition of three new modules to provide coverage of the extra content.
Isaac physics a project designed to offer support and activities in physics problem solving to teachers and students from gcse level through to university isaac physics the potential divider shown in the figure contains ideal diodes, meaning the diodes have zero resistance in the forward direction and infinite resistance in the reverse. A series of videos covering the gcse physics syllabus for aqa ocr and edexcel gcse exams are taken in the uk (and elsewhere) by students usually aged 15/16.
