J. Phillips EECS 215 Open circuit, short circuit Open circuit infinite resistance Short circuit zero resistance v + - i=0 v=0 + - i What happens if you connect a current source to an open circuit? What happens if you connect a voltage source to a short circuit? J. Phillips EECS 215 Circuit/Network Terminology Branch: single element, such as a resistor or source Node: connection point between two or more branches Loop: closed path in a circuit node branch loop

J. Phillips EECS 215 Circuit/Network Terminology Branch, nodes, and loops Parallel – connected to same two nodes Series – exclusively share a single node, same current series parallel branches = loops + nodes -1 J.
