Internal resistance of a voltage source

Voltage sources, whether batteries, generators, etc., are not ideal (perfect). A real voltage source is composed of an ideal voltage source in series with a resistance called internal resistance.

Ohm’s Law and the Electric Power – Formulas

Ohm’s Law relates in one equation the voltage, the current and resistance. Resistance = Resistor’s value.

A more complete expression of Ohm’s Law is achieved using the electric power formula

Ohm’s Law explanation

Ohm’s law states that the voltage across a resistor is directly proportional to the current flowing through the resistance and directly proportional to the resistance of the circuit.

Mesh Current Method in a Resistor Network

The Mesh current method is very useful to know all the current in a network of only resistors. This method, a little more extended, is also applied to circuits where there are resistances and reactance.

Window comparator using op amps

A window comparator using operational amplifiers lets you know if a signal (voltage level) is within or outside a previously defined acceptable voltage limit. Using a comparator or operational amplifier that controls the upper voltage level and another comparator that controls the lower voltage level, a window comparator can be implemented.

Benjamin Franklin’s Fluid Theory

Benjamin Franklin imagined the electricity as a invisible fluid. Franklin assured that if any body had more fluid than usual, it could have a positive charge, but if it had less fluid than normal it had negative charge.

What is a Voltage divider?

The Voltage divider is a circuit that allows us to obtain an output voltage less or equal to the input voltage. The output voltage is normally obtained across ground and the resistor connected to it, but it could be across any of the other resistors.

What is Direct Current? – DC

Direct Current (DC), is the result of the flow of electrons (negative charge) in a conductor (most of the time, wires of copper) that goes only in one direction.

The Superposition Theorem

The Superposition theorem states that the effect of two or more voltage sources in a resistor is equal to the sum of the individual effects of each source taken separately, replacing all the remaining voltage sources with short circuits.
