Example text

This is because the same current flows through any set of resistors connected in a series. The equivalent resistance or total resistance of a set of resistors connected in a series is found by summing up the resistances of each of the individual components. 22) If two resistors are connected in a series to a source, then the voltage across resistor 1 is v 1 (t) = R1 v s (t) R1 + R2 while the voltage across the second resistor is v 2 (t) = R2 v s (t) R1 + R2 EXAMPLE 2-9 Find the voltage across the second resistor in the circuit shown in Fig.

The Resistor In this chapter we study our first circuit element in detail, the resistor. As we will see, the resistor is actually a very simple device, so our analysis won’t change too much at this point. We will just have to do a bit of extra algebra. The operation of a resistor is based on the following fact from physics. As we know, a current is a flow of charges—in other words, the charges in a material are moving in a given direction at some speed. As the charges move through the material, they are going to collide with atoms that are fixed in place in the form of a crystalline lattice.

23) EXAMPLE 2-10 What is the total resistance of the circuit shown in Fig. 2-13, and what is the voltage across each resistor? SOLUTION The total resistance is RT = 4 1 1 = = 1/R1 + 1/R2 1/2 + 1/4 3 A rule of thumb is that the total resistance of two resistors in parallel is RT = R1 R2 R1 + R2 CHAPTER 2 Kirchhoff’s Laws and Resistance 2Ω 45 4Ω Is (t) = 9 cos 177t Fig. 2-13 The circuit used in Example 2-10. The voltage across each resistor can be found using the fact that i s (t) = G T v(t), from which we conclude that v(t) = RT i s (t), which gives v(t) = 4 9 cos 177t = 12 cos 177t V 3 This example brings us to the concept of a current divider.
