Worksheet for Series Circuits SAR Physics AM Kolchin Instructions 1. This worksheet is to be completed in class while work- ing together. Please don’t go ahead of the class. 2. Calculations are to be done showing equations and units. Please don’t just write down numbers without expla- nation. 3. No calculators are to be used unless explicitly stated. 4. The worksheet is to be handed in at the end of class even if it has not been completed. Series Circuits : 1. In a series circuit there is only one path for the current to take. 2. The resistances can be replaced by an ”equivalent resis- tance” that leaves the current unchanged. It is found by adding up all of the resistances in the series circuit: R EQ = R 1 + R 2 + R 3 + .... 3. Ohm’s Law ( V = IR or I = V/R ) can be applied between any two points in a circuit. 1
