Step I: Simplify “Compile” Circuits Step I: Simplify “Compile” Circuits Resistors Capacitors Key formula : V=iR Q=CV In series : same current same charge R eq =∑R j 1/C eq = ∑1/C j In parallel : same voltage same voltage 1/R eq = ∑1/R j C eq =∑C j

Around every loop add + E if you cross a battery from minus to plus, E if plus to minus, and –iR for each resistor. Then sum to Zero: + E 1 E 2 – iR 1 – iR 2 = 0. Step II: Apply Loop Rule Step II: Apply Loop Rule R 1 R 2 E 1 E 2 + + Conservation of ENERGY!

Step II: Apply Junction Rule Step II: Apply Junction Rule At every junction sum the ingoing currents and outgoing currents and set them equal. i 1 = i 2 + i 3 i 1 i 2 i 3 Conservation of CHARGE!
