What is the theme or topic to be presented?
Electric power and its various fluctuations and applications.
Students will be able to:
• Apply the terms electric force, electric field power, flux, electric potential,
and electric potential energy.
• Create an object from which they can observe electric field power.
• Demonstrate electric potential.
Physics Standard, Year 12:
3.5 Formulate electric force, electric field power, flux, electric potential, electric
potential energy and their application in several cases
• Direct Current
• Alternating Current
• Electric field
• Potential energy
• Electric potential
• Ohm’s law
Students should have an understanding of the concepts addressed in the Background Information at the end of this document. The following Making Activity requires students to apply their knowledge, and use it to explain what is happening in their motor.
