Ohms law

Some basics of conhantaohpg.comTo be able to lớn understand a bit more about conhantaohpg.com và the circuits that are shown on this or other websites, it is actually inevitable lớn understand Ohm’s law – it makes live a bit easier. You have to lớn understand what happens with the current, the voltage and the resistance. All these three variables are linked và make part of ‘Ohms Law’.

In formula: U = I x R The voltage is a sản phẩm of the current {A> times the resistance )

A graphical representation of this formula: when you look to lớn the triangle from one of the three angles, you ‘see’ the formula’s for every variable. If you look from the đứng đầu you ‘see’ U = I*R. Looking from the left corner beneath, you ‘see’ I=U/R.

In other words: the higher the value of the resistor, the lower the current given a constant voltage (the battery). If the resistance is 0 Ohm, we điện thoại tư vấn this a short-circuit. A short circuit will result in a undefined value (too high) of the current (dividing by zero is not possible)


Suppose you have a battery of 9V. If you connect a resistor of 1kOhm (=1000 Ohm) parallel, the resulting current will be:I = (U / R) = 9 / 1000 = 9 mA = 0,009 Ampere (A) (9 mili Amp)


Within conhantaohpg.com, the values we use will vary from Tera (= 1000000000000) or 1012 ( a one with 12 zero’s) to lớn pico: 0,000000000001. The engineering values always take steps of ‘3’ digits, in order khổng lồ keep the notation clean và avoid errors.



Voltage divider

If resistors are placed in series (see figure below), the total resistance is a summation of al the resistors. So the total resistance in the example below is: R1+R2. If more resistors are placed in series, just showroom them up. If you have the total resistance, the current can be calculated in that circuit with ohm’s law.

The current (I) in the series-circuit (see above) is the same in the whole circuit. There is only one branch. The voltage however is divided into equivalent parts. Another name for the circuit above is a voltage divider. The current through a resistor causes a ‘voltage-drop’ so with two resistors the voltage is divided into two values. If the series resistors have the same value (let’s say 1k), the value of the voltage parallel to the resistors is the same – the voltage is divided in equal parts. In case of the example below, the 10V of the power-supply is divided into two times 5V.

Be aware of the values that you use with these kind of calculations. Try khổng lồ make use of the ‘engineering-values’ & avoid shifting comma’s. See the figure below.

If we would look at the series circuit defining an input and an output, the battery is the input & the voltage parallel to lớn R2 is defined to be the output. This is an important definition when we start to lớn talk about filters!

If resistors are placed parallel (see figure below), they divide the current in equivalent parts – hence the name current divider. The voltage parallel lớn the two resistors is for both resistors the same – it is one electrical node (= electrical point). The current however is divided into two separate current flows. The amount of current is determined by the value of the resistor. See the figure.

The total resistance of parallel resistors is the inverse of the series switched resistors. To calculate the total resistance you have khổng lồ sum the inverses. This means that when resistors are connected parallel, the total resistance will go down. Suppose we have 2 resistors of 1kOhm placed parallel, the total resistance will be 500 Ohm.
