Example text

But it takes place only for a fraction of a second. Still, many coulombs of charge are displaced in a single bolt of lightning. ” This can be caused by a buildup of static electric charges, as in the case of a lightning stroke. When the charge builds up, with positive polarity (shortage of electrons) in one place and negative polarity (excess of electrons) in another place, a powerful electromotive force (EMF) exists. This force is measured in units called volts. Ordinary household electricity has an effective voltage of between 110 and 130; usually it is about 117.

C) an electric generator. (d) a magnetic field. 18. In a battery, chemical energy can sometimes be replenished by (a) connecting it to a light bulb. (b) charging it. (c) discharging it. (d) no means known; when a battery is dead, you must throw it away. 19. A fluctuating magnetic field (a) produces an electric current in an insulator. (b) magnetizes the earth. (c) produces a fluctuating electric field. (d) results from a steady electric current. 20. Visible light is converted into electricity (a) in a dry cell.

You can make your own galvanometer. Buy a cheap compass, about 2 feet of insulated bell wire, and a 6-volt lantern battery. Set it up as shown in Fig. 3-1. Wrap the wire around the compass four or five times, and align the compass so that the needle points along the wire turns while the wire is disconnected from the battery. Connect one end of the wire to the negative (−) terminal of the bat36 Copyright © 2006, 2002, 1997, 1993 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. Click here for terms of use.
