332:373 Elements of Electrical Engineering Spring, 2010 Dr. Shoane Minimum Things to Know for Midterm Know how to: 1. Recognize whether elements are connected in series, parallel, or neither series nor parallel. 2. Apply the voltage divider and current divider principles. 3. Write the node voltage equations and appropriate auxiliary equation for a circuit. 4. Write the mesh equations and appropriate auxiliary equation for a circuit. 5. Use Cramer’s Rule to solve a set of node voltage or mesh current equations. 6. Obtain the Thevenin or Norton equivalent of a circuit, and use source transformation to convert from Thevenin to Norton form and vice versa. 7. Use the continuity condition for an inductor or capacitor, and the solution form for
