Chapter 28 Direct Current Circuits 28.2 Resistors in Series and Parallel
Resistors in Series A, L 1 A, L 2 R 1 = L 1 /A R1R1 R 2 = L 2 /A R2R2 R eq A, L 1 + L 2 R eq = (L 1 + L 2 ) /A = R 1 + R 2 For resistors in series, the same current flows through each resistor from conservation of charge. For many resistors in series the equivalent resistance is the sum of all the individual resistances R eq = R 1 + R 2 + R 3 + …
Series Resistors 1. Current same through each resistor (conservation of charge) 2. Add
Resistors in Parallel A 1, L A 2, L 1/R 1 = A 1 / L R1R1 R2R2 R eq A 1 + A 2, L 1/R eq = (A 1 + A 2 )/ L = 1/R 1 + 1/R 2 For resistors in parallel, the voltage across each resistor is the same from conservation of energy. For many resistors in parallel the reciprocal of the equivalent resistance is the sum of all the reciprocals of the individual resistances 1/R 2 = A 2 / L 1/R eq = 1/R 1 + 1/R 2 + 1/R 3 + …
Parallel Resistors 1. Voltages same across each resistor (conservation of energy) 2. Add reciprocals

Junction Rule: The sum of the currents entering any junction equals the sum of the currents leaving that junction. This is due to conservation of charge. I 1 = I 2 + I 3 Loop Rule: The sum of the potential differences across each element around any closed loop is zero. This is due to the conservation of energy. 28.3 Kirchhoff’s Rules I1I1 I2I2 I3I3 R I - IR = 0
Kirchhoff’s Rules Analogy: River flowing down hill through a gravel bed. R I Loop Notes 1. Go through a battery from - to +: + 2. Go through a battery from + to -: - 3. Go through a resistor with current: -IR 4. Go through a resistor against current: +IR
