Fall 2004 Review of Last Class l Ohm’s Law V = I * R l KCL/KVL and Ohm’s law allow us to compute equivalent resistances l Resistances in series R = R1 + R2 l Resistances in parallel 1/R = 1/R1 + 1/R2 l Resistances in series => Voltage Dividers l Resistances in parallel => Current dividers

Fall 2004 Power l Power = rate at which energy consumed or produced l Power, symbol (P), Units (Watts) l P = I * V l Water analogy, amount of water (current), the height of the drop (voltage) determine power l Horsepower ratings on engines, wattage ratings on bulbs

Fall 2004 Energy l Charge moving through battery converts chemical energy to electrical energy l Energy U = Q V = (charge * Voltage) l Energy units (Joules, KWh), symbol (U) l Remember Power = rate of energy consumed = dU/dt = d/dt (QV) = dQ/dt V = I V l Utility bill in KWh = 1000 Watts over an hour = 1000 Watts * 3600 sec = 3.6 MJoules
