Study guide for the First Exam EE 302 Dr. Bruce McCann 1. Physical basics: Know the definition and understand the units for charge, voltage, current, power, work, energy and resistance. You must really understand these fundamental concepts and how they inter-relate. 2. Know the unit prefixes micro ( μ ), milli (m), kilo (k) and mega (M). You do not need to know the others (for now). Remember to put units on all numeric answers. 3. Understand ideal voltage and current sources, short circuits, open circuits and switches. 4. Be able to compute the power absorbed or delivered by a component. Be able to identify which components in a circuit absorb power and which deliver power. Be able to demonstrate power balance in a circuit. 5. Know Kirchhoff’s Laws and how to apply them. Understand reference directions for current and voltage. Be sure you know how to use signs in a self-consistent manor when writing the equations for the currents at a node or the voltages around a loop. 6. Know Ohm’s Law in all its forms. Be sure you know how to use reference directions in a self- consistent manor when writing the equations for the voltage and current for a resistor. Remember that Power = I 2 R or V 2 /R and know when and how to apply these short-cut formulas (V and I must be the voltage and current associated with the resistor, R). Understand the importance of the power rating of
