Unformatted text preview: People often find it easier to be a result of the past than a cause of the future. Birzeit University Physics Department Physics 112 Experiment No.4 NETWORK ANALYSIS II The Thevenin and Norton techniques Student’s Name: Ammar T. Ammar Student’s No.: 1040385 Section: 7 Date: 18/3/2005 Instructor: Dr. Ziyad Izzat 2005 Copy left reversed Abstract: The aim of the experiment: is to verify Thevenin and Norton techniques. And to find the current passing through a resistance, or the voltage between its terminals. The method used: by comparing the value of the current passing each resistant measured using the ammeter with values we calculate using the mentioned laws. (i.e. by employing the equivalent circuit technique of Thevenin and Norton.) Main results: I 1, I 2 , and I 3 were found to be 3.16mA, 1.29 mA and 1.87mA respectively and V 1 , V 2 , V 3 was found to be 3.20 V, 2.80V and 8.76V respectively. Theory: The techniques of Thevenin and Norton are used for more complicated circuits than those for which we use Kirchhoff's Laws and the Superposition Principle. Thevenin's Technique: "Any network of resistors and supplies having two output terminals can be replaced by a series combination of a voltage source ( 29 eq ε and a resistor ( 29 eq R ." This means that, with Thevenin's theorem, we can calculate the current passing across any resistor...
