Day 17 of Linear Circuits.  Linearity and superposition are powerful tools to simplify and solve linear circuits.  Using these two principles, we can break our larger circuits into different, but substantially smaller circuits. Then, we can simply add the results of our smaller circuits together to get our final answer.  In this lesson, we will review the basic principles introduced in the last lesson, and we will go over even more examples.

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