Laws

Electron Flow Theory

Negative (-) flows to positive (+)

Kirchoff Voltage Law (Series Circuit)

Across all resistors (voltage drops), the sum of the voltages = the applied voltage

Resistance Law of Proportion

Supply voltage is distrubuted among all resistors according to the proportion of resistance each resistor has relative to the total resistance

See MH-pg 73-Q7

Kirchoff Current Law

Series Circuit_The sum of current flowing into a resistor = the sum of current flowing out of the resistor

Parallel Circuit_Total Current (It) is provided by Source voltage and is the sum of all currents of all branches

Law of Conservation of Energy

A power supply will only produce as much power as that consumed
