Electronics S1W8: Series-Parallel Resistor Combinations



This course is Week 8 of an 8 week series that teaches electronics to professionals, students and hobbyists desiring to know how electronic circuits work. This first 8 weeks has the name “DC Electronics” in most college electronics degree programs because it teaches the following concepts about electronics:- The atomic structure of conductors, insulators and semiconductors- The definition of the major characteristics of electronics: Resistance, Current, Voltage and Power- The use of Ohm’s Law, Kirchhoff’s Voltage and Current Laws, the Voltage Divider and Current Divider Formulas and how to apply them to basic resistive circuits.- Practice solving series resistive circuits, parallel resistive circuits, and the topic for this week’s class: solving series-parallel resistive circuits.The class is presented primarily as a PowerPoint presentation with instruction by your teacher.Quizzes are presented at the end of each section of the course to test your knowledge and comprehension of the material presented in that section.
