FIGURE 3–1 A Van de Graaf generator is capable of producing millions of volts. HOLLOW METAL BALL SUPPORT TOWER (NON CONDUCTIVE HOUSES LATEX BELT) BASE TO HOUSE DRIVE MOTOR Light energy can be converted directly to electrical energy by light striking a photosensitive (light-sensitive) substance in a photovoltaic cell (solar cell) (Figure 3–6). A solar cell consists of photosensitive materials mounted between metal contacts. When the surface of the photosensitive material is exposed to light, it dislodges electrons from their orbits around the surface atoms of the material.
DIFFERENCE OF POTENTIAL + LOAD ously mentioned, silver, copper, gold, and aluminum are examples of good conductors. Materials with a high resistance are called insulators. Insulators have few free electrons and offer a high resistance to current flow. As previously mentioned, glass, rubber, and plastic are examples of good insulators. Resistance is measured in ohms, a unit named for the German physicist George Simon Ohm (1787–1854). The symbol for the ohm is the Greek letter omega (1). – – 1–5 1–4 QUESTIONS 1.
An atom that has the same number of electrons and protons is said to be electrically balanced. A balanced atom that receives one or more electrons is no longer balanced. It is said to be negatively charged and is called a negative ion. A balanced atom that loses one or more electrons is said to be positively charged and is called a positive ion. The process of gaining or losing electrons is called ionization. Ionization is significant in current flow. 1–2 QUESTIONS 1. What atomic particle has a positive charge and a large mass?
