DC and AC Circuits Final Review 1. Parts of an atom 2. Visual identification of series, parallel, and series-parallel circuits 3. Resistor color codes 4. How to measure voltage, current, and resistance in the lab 5. Current – the orderly motion of free electrons 6. Two requirements for current to flow 7. Voltage – also called electromotive force, potential – exists between two points or across circuit elements and can be described as “electrical pressure” 8. Units – Volt, Ampere, Watt, Ohm, Joule, second – and note that formulas are written for these base units (examples: Volts = Amps * Ohms, Watts = Volts * Amps, Watt = Joule per second) 9. Prefixes: (p, n, µ, m, k, M, G) how to use them with units and how to convert between them – especially 10 3 , 10 -3 , 10 6 , 10 -6 , which we use frequently with electronic circuits 10. Ohm’s Law: V = I R I = V / R R = V / I (be able to use all three forms) 11. Recognize series combinations (a single path for current) and parallel combinations (circuit elements that share the same two nodes) 12. Kirchhoff’s Voltage Law (sum of voltage drops around a loop equals zero) 13. Kirchhoff’s Current Law (sum of currents coming into a node equals sum of currents leaving a node) 14. Resistor combinations in series and parallel – how to calculate resistance for these combinations 15.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
