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

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

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