Lecture 5, Slide 1 EECS40, Fall 2003 Prof. King Lecture #5 OUTLINE • Resistors in series – equivalent resistance – voltage-divider circuit – measuring current • Resistors in parallel – equivalent resistance – current-divider circuit – measuring voltage • Circuit w/ dependent source example Reading Chapter 3.1-3.5 Lecture 5, Slide 2 EECS40, Fall 2003 Prof. King Clarification of Terms If p > 0 , then the circuit element is absorbing electric power from the rest of the circuit. (Power is delivered to the element.) – For a resistor, energy is dissipated in the form of heat – For a source, energy is stored If p < 0 , then the circuit element is supplying electric power to the rest of the circuit. (The element is said to be developing power or generating power ; this power is delivered to the rest of the circuit.) + v _ i

Lecture 5, Slide 3 EECS40, Fall 2003 Prof. King Consider a circuit with multiple resistors connected in series. Find their “equivalent resistance”. • KCL tells us that the same current ( I ) flows through every resistor • KVL tells us Equivalent resistance of resistors in series is the sum
