Outline DC and AC circuit Omh’s Law
Equivalent resistance in series and parallel cuicuits Exercises & Homework

Direct Current (DC) & Alternating Current (AC)
DC: uni-directional movement of electric charges AC: the direction of the movement of electric charges reverses periodically

Ohm’s Law Quantifying the relationship between voltage and current
V voltage, volt (V) I current, amp (A) R resistance ohm (Ω) I V R

An Example 3V = I x 1000 Ω I=3V / 1000 Ω = 3milliAmps
Determine the current using Ohm’s Law 3V = I x Ω Solve for I: I=3V / 1000 Ω = 3milliAmps 3V R = 1K Ω I = ? Amps

Resisters in Series I R1 R2 R3 Apply Ohm’s Law on each resister V
Just one path, currents are equal Equivalent resistance Voltage drops can be added up

Principles for Resisters in Series
Current remains same in one circle Voltage can be added up Equivalent Resistance equal to sum of all resisters in series V R1 I R2 R3

Examples Online examples for resistances

Resisters in Parallel I R1 R2 R3 Apply Ohm’s Law on each resister V
Voltages are same on each path Current is divided to 3 paths Equivalent resistance

Principles for Resisters in Parallel
