Unformatted text preview: thc voltage divider cir-cuit in Fig.3.12 and tlre currentdivider circuil in Fig.3.15.The generaliza-tions will yield two addiiional and very usctul circuit analysis lechniques known as voltage division and current division. Consider the circuil shown inFig.3.18. The box on tlre left can cortain a single voltage source or any other combination of basic circuit elements that results in thc vollag ?) shownin the tigure. To the right of the box are r resistors conncctcd in series. We are interested in finding the voltage drop ol across an arbitrary resistor Rl in terms of the voltage r. We start by using Ohm's law !o calculate i, fte current through all of the resistors in serics, in lerms of the current o and n l + R 2 + - + R , , R.q ' (3.2e) figure 3.18 t Cjrcuit usd to ittustEie vottage division....
