ECE201 Lect-3 2 Single Loop Circuit The same current flows through each element of the circuit---the elements are in series. We will consider circuits consisting of voltage sources and resistors.

ECE201 Lect-3 4 Solve for I The same current I flows through the source and each light bulb- how do you know this? In terms of I , what is the voltage across each resistor? Make sure you get the polarity right! To solve for I , apply KVL around the loop.

ECE201 Lect-3 6 Some Comments We can solve for the voltage across each light bulb: V = IR = (10.5mA)(228 Ω29 = 2.4V This circuit has one source and several resistors. The current is Source voltage/Sum of resistances (Recall that series resistances sum)
