Electronics: Resistors in Series S1W5
This Basics Electronics Course will teach you how to solve series resistor circuits. To understand Direct Current (DC) Electronics, you need to master four resistor configurations:
This course will teach you to master the first category above.
These are the topics covered in this course:
In other words, you will understand exactly how to solve series circuit resistor problems!
Thiscourse is important if you wish to understand electronics. The analysis of basic series circuits is a fundamental tool that you must master to properly troubleshoot, analyze and maintain electronic equipment. Ohm's Law states the basic relationships between voltage, current and resistance in an electronic circuit. This information is mandatory for any hobbyist or professional who needs to understand how electronic circuits work. This course is a quality product taught by a college instructor who has been teaching electronics for over twenty years. It is the equivalent of a full week of college level training at a community college or technical university.The primary teaching method is instructor led lectures using PowerPoint slide presentations. Drawings, images and schematics are used to clearly illustrate each electronic principle. There are ten separate lectures that take you through the concepts of Ohm's Law and series circuits in a clear, simple manner. A number of quizzes are included test your retention of the lecture material.
At the end of this course, you will have a solid grasp of the principles of Ohm's Law and the application of this law to the solution of electronic circuit problems.

Section 1: Introduction to Electronics: Resistors in Series  

Lecture 1  04:49  
This course Introduction video walks through the topics covered in this week 5 of a full semester course about "DC Electronics", and develops the training for the rules of series resistive circuits as used in electronics. Topics Include:


Lecture 2  09:32  
Given some number of resistors, there are only four ways that resistors can be connected together:
This lecture describes the first three configurations, and promises to cover the fourth after the student has mastered the first three. 

Quiz 1  3 questions  
Questions about the different ways that a resistive circuit can be configured. 

Lecture 3  19:38  
Electrical and electronic circuits require ground connections for several reasons. This lecture describes the concept of grounding, then shows the main ground schematic symbols and explains how they are used. 

Section 2: Basic Laws of Series Resistors  
Lecture 4  14:32  
Series resistive circuits have four main rules or characteristics that govern their use in electronics. This and the next lecture explain and discuss the rule that in a series circuit, the total resistance is equal to the sum of the resistances in the circuit. 

Lecture 5  12:12  
Series resistive circuits have four main rules or characteristics that govern their use in electronics. This and the previous lecture explain and discuss the rule that in a series circuit, the total resistance is equal to the sum of the resistances in the circuit.  
Quiz 2 
Series Resistors

2 questions  
Lecture 6  18:50  
Kirchhoff's Law states that the sum of the voltage drops in a series circuit must equal the source voltage applied to the circuit. This lecture explains and expands on that rule. 

Quiz 3  3 questions  
Questions about Kirchhoff's Voltage Law 

Lecture 7  04:53  
In any series resistive circuit, the current is the same throughout that circuit. This concept is explained and examples given in this lecture. 

Section 3: Voltage Drop and Series Circuit Practice Problems  
Lecture 8  13:05  
In electronics, we say that a component "drops" a specific voltage in a circuit. This, and the next lecture explain that concept, and gives several examples of how voltage drop is computed. 

Lecture 9  09:57  
In electronics, we say that a component "drops" a specific voltage in a circuit. This, and the previous lecture explain that concept, and give several examples of how voltage drop is computed.  
Lecture 10  17:22  
This lecture presents the student with several resistive series circuit problems, and walks the student through to the correct solution of all characteristics of the circuits. 

Quiz 4  4 questions  
Solve a series circuit using all of the tools described in this lesson.
