Description

Day 15 of Linear Circuits.  Nodal analysis is a systematic process that can be used to solve any linear circuit.  While nodal analysis can seem daunting at first, it turns out, that all we are really doing is applying Kirchhoff's Current Law (KCL) and Ohm's Law over-and-over again.  In part 2, we apply nodal analysis to even more circuits.


The material covers all of the lecture material from an fifteenth lecture in a traditional, sophomore-level linear circuits class.
