Introduction
Two types of current are readily available to the consumer today.
One is direct current (dc), in which ideally the flow of charge (current) does
not change in magnitude (or direction) with time.

A BRIEF DISCUSSION ABOUT ELECTRIC
FIELD
Basically an electric field is defined by the region where an electric
charge will experience a force.
It exists around any charged body.
The field can by represented by a set of

SUPERPOSITION THEOREM
If a circuit has two or more independent sources,
the value of the specific variable is determined by
the contribution of each independent source to
the variable and then add them up.
