2
Jump to first page Introduction n Informational lecture by Fred Baker n Electronics Instructor for U.S. Navy

3
Jump to first page Topics of Discussion n Resistance totaling values, dependent on the circuit structure n Knowing how to calculate resistance depending on circuit structure n Understanding these basics can save valuable time and effort

4
Jump to first page Resistance Rules for Series Circuits n Series circuits are always one-for- one additive u Rt = R1 + R2 + R3 + Rn

5
Jump to first page Series Circuit n Sample of a Series Circuit layout R1 R2 R3

6
Jump to first page Solving for Series Resistance n Calculate the resistance using the series formula: u Rt = R1 + R2 + R3 + Rn Rt = 20 + 30 + 50 R1= R2= R3=

7
Jump to first page Resistance Rules for Parallel Resistance Circuit n Parallel circuits are reciprocally additive u Rt = R1 R2 R3

8
Jump to first page Parallel Circuit n Sample of a Parallel Circuit layout R1=20 R2=30 R3=50

9
Jump to first page Solving for Parallel Resistance n Calculate using reciprocal formula: u Rt = 1 / 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/Rn Rt = 1/1/20 + 1/30 + 1/50 Rt = 1/0.05 Rt = 1/103 R1=20 R2=30 R3=50
