The first thing to ask the students to do is to count and label the nodes, and then to select one of the nodes as the reference node or ground. Although any node can be selected as a ground, if they choose wisely they can simplify the analysis. Ask them to look for voltage sources. If one or more share a common node, that node makes a good reference candidate. Encourage them to select the negative terminal of a voltage source as their reference. That will automatically make the positive node equal to the voltage of the source – that is one less node they have to worry about. The node labels are ‘ground symbol (0V)’ and V A , V B …V N . Some of the node voltages may be known since they are connected to a source whose other end is connected to ground – e.g.

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.
