### Photoelectric Effect - High School Physics Tutorial

Photoelectric Effect-Tutorial
The photoelectric effect is the observation that many metals emit electrons when light shines upon them. Electrons emitted in this manner may be called photo electrons.

Overview of the Photoelectric Effect
The photoelectric effect is studied in part because it can be an introduction to wave-particle duality and quantum mechanics.

As shown in video below,when a surface is exposed to sufficiently energetic electromagnetic energy, light will be absorbed and electrons will be emitted. The threshold frequency is different for different materials.

### Transformer Working Principal - High School Physics Tutorial

Transformer Working Principal
A transformer and its close relative, the Induction coil, use a B field created by a Primary Coil to induce a current in a Secondary coil through induction. The B field changes as the Primary Current changes.

Related Topics: Electromotive force (EMF) Voltage Source and Current Source Body Or Chassis Ground in Electronic Circuits Basics Of Electric Current
The link between the Primary and Secondary is strengthened by the use of a laminated iron alloy core ( laminated to reduce eddy currents ) to increase the B field. Further, both Primary and Secondary use multiple windings which dictate the strength of the flux between them. More coils, more area hence more flux.

### Laws of Resistance and Specific Resistance

Laws of Resistance and Specific Resistance The laws of resistance states that the Resistance “R” offered by a conductor depends upon following factors:

1. The Resistance “R” is directly proportional with it’s length “L”

2. The Resistance “R” is Inversely proportional with it’s Cross Sectional Area: “A”

### Effect of temperature on Resistance Of Materials

Effect of temperature on Resistance Of Materials
In pure metals the resistance of the substance increases with the increase in it’s temperature. The increase is large and fairly regular for normal ranges of temperature. Or metals have a positive temperature coefficient of resistance.

Effect of temperature on Resistance Of Material

In alloys also the increase in temperature results in increase of it’s resistance, but unlike pure metals the increase is relatively small and irregular. For some high resistance alloys like Eureka ( Cu 60% & Ni 40%) and maganin , the increase in resistance is ( or can be made) negligible over a considerable range of temperature.

### Basics Of Electric Current - High School Physics Tutorial

Electric Current is the flow of electrons in a substance from it’s one point to another in other words Electric Current is the rate at which the charges or electrons flows through a particular surface or point in a substance for eg. The current in a wire is the rate at which the charges carrying electrons passes through the cross sectional surface of the wire.

The anatomy of a conductor and flow of current:A conductor is usually made up of a lot of molecules piled one over another , and the molecules are collection of atoms.

### Electromotive force (EMF) - High School Physics Tutorial

Electromotive force (EMF)
Electromotive force (EMF) also called Voltage sometimes is the measure energy which causes the flow of current through a circuit or conductor. By definition:

Electromotive Force is the energy per unit charge causing the charge to move through the circuit.

Body Or Chassis Ground in Electronic Circuits

By the name Electromotive force might sound like a force ; But EMF is not exactly a force instead it is the measure of Energy or Work done per charge which causes the charge to move around in a circuit as shown in the figure below:  What is Potential Difference?

Electric potential is the electric potential energy which tends to move the charge through the circuit and the potential difference (PD) is the difference between the electric potential of two points in a circuit. In any circuit Potential difference between two points is almost equal to the Electromotive force between them , and thee measure of PD is al…

### Voltage Source and Current Source

Voltage Source:A device which can produce a continuous force to move the electrons (or, continuous voltage) through the wire connected into the two terminals of the device is called a Voltage Source. There are two types of the Voltage Source which are:

Direct Voltage Source:

A device which produces a continuous direct voltage output is called a Direct Voltage Source. For example: Cells , Battery , DC Generator.

### Body Or Chassis Ground in Electronic Circuits

Body/Chassis
In any circuit or electronics devices the outer cover or framework of the device or the circuit is called the Chassis.

Grounding:
Grounding is the process of determining a Zero Voltage Or Reference Voltage Level point and connecting all other devices to it for a common return path for current.

### Voltage Divider in Electronic Circuit

Circuits-Voltage Divider
A Voltage Divider is a circuit or device that divides the total supplied voltage into fractions or parts among the various components or points in the device.
Voltage dividers are normally used to obtain various voltage output from a voltage source , For example in Transistor Biasing , Audio Circuits , Providing power to devices draining small currents etc.

Pulse-width modulation (PWM), or pulse-duration modulation (PDM), is a technique used to encode a message into a pulsing signal. It is a type of modulation. Although this modulation technique can be used to encode information for transmission, its main use is to allow the control of the power supplied to electrical devices, especially to inertial loads such as motors. In addition, PWM is one of the two principal algorithms used in photovoltaic solar battery chargers,the other being MPPT.
