Review

Review

What is equivalent resistance of a circuit?

Total resistance of a series-parallel circuit

Review1

Review

What is a combination circuit?

A series-parallel circuit, having a branch of a parallel circuit with resistors in series

Solving for voltage and current values

Solving for Voltage and Current Values

  • Once a circuit has been reduced, voltage and current values found with Ohm’s law

  • Total values can be found first

  • The circuit can be separated to find all other values

Power in a combination circuit

Power in a Combination Circuit

  • P = I2R or P = E× I

  • Total power in a combination circuit is equal to the sum of the individual wattages, regardless of whether they are connected with each other in series or parallel

Review2

Review

Why must a combination circuit be reduced before solving for individual current and voltage values?

Total values should be found before proceeding to individual values

Review3

Review

What is the relationship between total power and individual wattages in a combination circuit?

Total power equals the sum of individual wattages

Troubleshooting a combination circuit

Troubleshooting a Combination Circuit

  • Take voltage readings of individual components

  • Look for an open or a short circuit condition

  • Check against calculated expected values

Review4

Review

How should an ohmmeter be connected when troubleshooting a series circuit?

With one end of the resistor disconnected from the circuit

Review5

Review

Why should you calculate expected values before using meters to troubleshoot a series-parallel circuit?

Because with one parallel resistor open, there is still a path for the current, and the readings can be misleading

For discussion

For Discussion

  • Discuss Kirchhoff’s two laws for electrical circuits.

  • Why does the resistance of a conductor decrease as its cross-sectional area increases?
