Chapter 5 • Ohm’s Law
Objectives • After completing this chapter, you will be able to: – Identify the three basic parts of a circuit – Identify three types of circuit configurations – Describe how current flow can be varied in a circuit – State Ohm’s law with reference to current, voltage, and resistance
Objectives (cont’d.) – Solve problems using Ohm’s law for current, resistance, or voltage in series, parallel, and series-parallel circuits – Describe how the total current flow differs between series and parallel circuits – Describe how the total voltage drop differs between series and parallel circuits – Describe how the total resistance differs between series and parallel circuits
Objectives (cont’d.) – State and apply Kirchhoff’s current and voltage laws – Verify answers using Ohm’s law with Kirchhoff’s law
Electric Circuits • Electric circuit – Path that current follows • Series circuit, parallel circuit, or series-parallel circuit – Consists of a voltage source, load, and a conductor
