ICE 3M1 - Circuit Analysis Problems Part 1 1. Rt=R1+R2+R3 Rt=39Ω + 39Ω + 39Ω = 117Ω To solve this circuit all you need to do is add up all the resistances since they are in series. We know that the resistors are in series is because the are all in a line and the wires that branch off to the sides are irrelevant because there is no load. 2. Total 1 2 3 4 5 Vt (V) 9V It (mA) 0.44mA Rt (kΩ) 20.29kΩ 12kΩ 16kΩ 10kΩ 6kΩ 8kΩ For this circuit the 12kΩ and 16kΩ resistors are in parallel as well as the 8kΩ and the 6kΩ resistors are in parallel. Once we have combined these two sets of resistors we can see that they are just in series. Now that they are in series we can just add them up so that we can get the total resistance.

3. Total 1 2 3 Vt (V) 2000V 1000V 1000V 1000V It (mA) 50mA 50mA 10mA 40mA Rt (kΩ) 40kΩ 20kΩ 100kΩ 25kΩ To solve this circuit we can first need to subtract the 10mA from 50mA which will give us the current value at 3. Now we can calculate the voltage at 2 and 3 by using Ohms law. Once we have
