BASIC COMPONENTS OF A SIMPLE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT 1.A Source of Electrical Energy/Potential Difference 2.An Electrical Device : resistors (considered as loads) 3.Connecting Wires
1. Simple Circuits : with only one voltage source Ohm’s Law is sufficient to analyze it!

2 . Simple Circuits : with 2 or more voltage source Ohm’s Law is not sufficient to analyze it! Kirchoff’s Law will be needed
SIMPLE CIRCUITS: WITH ONE EMF RESISTORS IN SERIES the current flows through them one after another.

There is only one path for the current to travel, the current through each of the resistors is the same. Thus I1= I2 = I3 The voltage drops across the resistors must add up to the total voltage supplied by the battery: V total = V1+V2+V3 R equivalent

### What students are saying

• 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.
