Answers: 1. 615 mA 2. 720 C Although Equation 2–5 is the theoretical definition of current, we never actually use it to measure current. 6). However, it is an extremely important equation that we will soon use to develop other relationships. Current Direction In the early days of electricity, it was believed that current was a movement of positive charge and that these charges moved around the circuit from the positive terminal of the battery to the negative as depicted in Figure 2–11(a). Based on this, all the laws, formulas, and symbols of circuit theory were developed.

The Ampere Since charge is measured in coulombs, its rate of flow is coulombs per second. In the SI system, one coulomb per second is defined as one ampere (commonly abbreviated A). From this, we get that one ampere is the current in a circuit when one coulomb of c harge passes a given point in one second (Figure 2–10). The symbol for current is I. Expressed mathematically, Q I ϭ ᎏᎏ t [amperes, A] (2–5) where Q is the charge (in coulombs) and t is the time interval (in seconds) over which it is measured.

Coulomb determined experimentally that the force between two charges Q1 and Q2 (Figure 2–5) is directly proportional to the product of their charges and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. Mathematically, Coulomb’s law states Q Q2 F ϭ k ᎏ1ᎏ [newtons, N] r2 ■ Atomic Theory Review 33 r F Q1 ϩ Q2 ϩ F (a) Like charges repel (2–1) where Q1 and Q2 are the charges in coulombs, r is the center-to-center spacing between them in meters, and k ϭ 9 ϫ 109. Coulomb’s law applies to aggregates of charges as in Figure 2–5(a) and (b), as well as to individual electrons within the atom as in (c).
