Series Resistors and Voltage Division
Resistors in series act like one resistor with the resistance of the sum of the resistors
Sum of the voltage drops across the resistors in series is equal to the volt

Welcome
This is CMPE306 Basic Circuit Theory for Computer
and Mechanical Engineers.
The instructor is Dr. Chuck LaBerge
For the first few (15) weeks, bear with me as I try to
learn your names (Im a slow learner!)
The more you come see me, the better c
