When n resistors are connected in parallel, it means they are connected to the same potential difference V:

(2)

It also means that the total current in the circuit is given by the sum of the currents flowing through each branch (each resistor) of the circuit:

(1)

By using Ohm's law:

we can rewrite (1) as

However, we said that the potential difference across each resistor is equal (eq.(2)), so we can rewrite the last formula as

From which we find an expression for the equivalent resistance of n resistors in parallel:

Question

A cello string 0.75 m long has a 220 hz fundamental frequency. find the wave speed along the vibrating string. answer in units of m/s.

Solution 1

For fundamental frequency of a string to occur, the length of the string has to be half the wavelength. That is,

1/2y = L, where L = length of the string, y = wavelength.

Therefore,

y = 2L = 2*0.75 =1.5 m

Additionally,

y = v/f Where v = wave speed, and f = ferquncy

Then,

v = y*f = 1.5*220 = 330 m/s

1/2y = L, where L = length of the string, y = wavelength.

Therefore,

y = 2L = 2*0.75 =1.5 m

Additionally,

y = v/f Where v = wave speed, and f = ferquncy

Then,

v = y*f = 1.5*220 = 330 m/s

Question

A car has two horns, one emitting a frequency of 199 hz and the other emitting a frequency of 203 hz. what beat frequency do they produce?

Solution 1

Beat frequency, fb = |f2-f1|

That is, beat frequency is the absolute difference between two frequencies. Is is as a results of destructive and constructive inferences.

Therefore, in this case:

fb = 203 - 199 = 4 Hz

That is, beat frequency is the absolute difference between two frequencies. Is is as a results of destructive and constructive inferences.

Therefore, in this case:

fb = 203 - 199 = 4 Hz

Question

Extend your thinking: household appliances are usually connected in a parallel circuit. why do you think it might be a problem if too many appliances are turned on at once? (hint: current in a wire also produces heat.)

Solution 1

There might be a problem of a lot of **power** being **dissipated** if too many

appliances are turned on at **once.**

We can infer from **Ohm's law** that as **resistance** decreases, the total **current** increases.

**I= V/R**

The **power** dissipated through the circuit is directly proportional to the **square**

of the **current**.

**P= I²R**

We can therefore state that the **power** dissipated via heat will be much when

too many **appliances** are turned on at **once**.

Solution 2

The equivalent resistance of several devices connected in parallel is given by

where are the resistances of the various devices. We can see that every time we add a new device in parallel, the term increases, therefore the equivalent resistance of the circuit decreases.

But Ohm's law:

tells us that if the equivalent resistance decreases, the total current in the circuit increases. The power dissipated through the circuit (and so, the heat produced) depends on the square of the current:

therefore if there are too many devices connected in parallel, this can be a problem because there could be too much power dissipated (and too much heat) through the circuit.

Question

What is an advantage of using coal power over solar power to generate electricity

Solution 1

An advantage of using **coal power** over **solar power** to generate electricity is Reliable Fuel.

Compared to solar power or wind energy, **coal** is a reliable, predictable, and dependable fuel. While it may not be at the forefront of national energy production, it can provide invaluable backup service and highly reliable fuel.

**"Coal-fired power **plants burn coal to make** steam** and the steam turns turbines (machines for generating rotary mechanical power) to generate **electricity**." Many industries and businesses have their own power plants, and some use coal to generate electricity for their own use and mostly in combined **heat** and power plants.

**"Solar power** works by converting energy from the sun into power." There are two forms of **energy **generated from the sun for our use – electricity and heat. Both are generated through the use of **solar panels**, which range in size from residential rooftops to '**solar farms**' stretching over acres of rural land.

if Brian has 50 apples how many apples does he have now , sorry just needed to change my question

Solution 1

50 bc he HAS 50 so he STILL HAS IT

Question

How does natural selection result in adaptations in a species

Solution 1

An organism's "fitness" is measured by its ability to live long enough to reproduce and pass down traits to their offspring. In sexually reproducing organisms, those who are most fit are most likely to survive often have a specialized trait that gave them the advantage in doing so. The organism with the traits that allowed them to survive and reproduce passes the trait to it's offspring. Assuming that the environment doesn't overly change, those offspring have a greater chance to survive and reproduce themselves. Thus, this trait becomes a specialized adaption for the environment and allows the species as a whole to survive longer.

Question

I need help finding the answer: When a guitar string plays the note "A", the string vibrates at 440 Hz. What is the period of the vibration?

Solution 1

The formula applicable:

Period, T = 1/f --- Where T = period (s), and f = frequency (Hz).

Substituting by use of the values of frequency given in the current scenario,

T = 1/440 = 2.27*10^-3 seconds

Period, T = 1/f --- Where T = period (s), and f = frequency (Hz).

Substituting by use of the values of frequency given in the current scenario,

T = 1/440 = 2.27*10^-3 seconds
