Chapter 1 - Useful Equations And Conversion Factors

PDF Version
  • Components in a series circuit share the same current:
    • Itotal = I1 = I2 = . . . In
  • Total resistance in a series circuit is equal to the sum of the individual resistances, making it greater than any of the individual resistances:
    • Rtotal = R1 + R2 + . . . Rn
  • Total voltage in a series circuit is equal to the sum of the individual voltage drops:
    • Etotal = E1 + E2 + . . . En
