Objectives Objectives 1. Understand and be able to use the node-voltage  method to solve a circuit. 2. Understand and be able to use the mesh-current  method to solve a circuit. 3. Be able to decide whether the node-voltage method  or the mesh-current method is the preferred  approach to solving a particular circuit. 4. Understand source transformation and be able to  use it to solve a circuit. 5. Understand the concept of Thevenin- and Norton- equivalent circuits and be able to construct both. 6. Know the condition for maximum power transfer to a  resistive load and be able to calculate the load  resistor value that satisfies this condition.

4.1 Terminology 4.1 Terminology To discuss the more-involved methods  of circuit  analysis  we need to define a  few basis terms. So far, all circuits presented have  been  planer circuits. The Circuit of Fig. 4.1 (a) can be  redrawn as Fig 4.1 (b) which is  planer. Note that this can  not  be done for  Fig. 4.2 which is a nonplaner circuit. The node-voltage analysis is applicable  to planer and nonplaner circuits. Only planer circuits can be analyzed  by  the mesh-current analysis.

    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.
