UCSD Summer Session Physics 2B Formula Sheet UNIT 3 –Resistor & Network (combo) Supplement Three macroscopic parameters completely define how a resistor behaves in a circuit: the Resistance R , the applied Potential V , and current I . They are always related by VI R = Ohm’s Law We connect Resistors together into networks in different ways. The basic building blocks are SERIES and PARALLEL . These in turn can be joined to make more complicated circuits. In these configurations, one equivalent capacitor Equiv R can replace them all, and we can use the same equation for the equivalent. When we do so, we may still be interested the R , V , and I of each of the individual elements. The following table summarizes the characteristics for the two types of networks. Of course, when we combine these into more complicated networks, the same rules apply. Supplementary Resistor Circuit Table
