Series and ParallelCircuitsHow to Simplify to FindTotal Resistance, Current andVoltage
Series Circuits Series Circuits are the simplest to work with. Here we have three resistors of different resistances.They share a single connection point. When addedtogether the total resistance is 90-Ohms.
Parallel Circuits A parallel circuit is shown here and it has TWOcommon connection points with another component.In this case another resistor. We cannot add thevalues of each resistor together like we can in theprevious series circuit. So what do we need to do?
Calculating Total Resistanceof a Parallel CircuitTwo methods can be used to calculate the totalresistance of the parallel circuit. They are theProduct Over Sum equation or the ReciprocalFormula.(R1 x R2)Product Over Sum is RT (R1 R2)Reciprocal Formula is RT 111111 𝑅1 𝑅2 𝑅3 𝑅4 𝑅5

Series-Parallel CircuitsIf we combined a series circuit with a parallelcircuit we produce a Series-Parallel circuit. R1 and R2 are in parallel andR3 is in series with R1 ǁ R2.The double lines between R1and R2 is a symbol for parallel.We need to calculate R1 ǁ R2first before adding R3.
Series-Parallel Circuits Here we can use the shorter Product OverSum equation as we only have two parallelresistors.(R1 x R2) 27 𝑥 34 918R1 ǁ 2 (R1 R2) 27 34 61R1 ǁ 2 15.049Ω R3 RTRT 15.049 58 73.049Ω RT 73Ω
Series-Parallel Circuits Now that we have our circuit resistance of RT wecan calculate circuit current by using Ohm’s Law.If RT 73Ω and E 100VI 10073 1.369 Amps or 1.37 AThe parallel resistors must bereduced to a single series valuebefore being added to theseries resistor.
Series-Parallel Circuits Series-Parallel circuits can be more complex as in this case:In circuit (a) we have our original complex circuit. In circuit (b)we have resistors R1and R2 combinedto get 13.2Ω. R4 isin series with thenewly combined R12and their addedvalue is 51.2Ω.And now (c) we areleft with R124 inparallel with R3.(d) is our final circuit.

The API also provides the user with ability to perform simple processing on measurements made by the CTSU for each channel and then treat each channel as a Touch Button, or group channels and use them as linear or circular sliders. The API inherently depends on the user to provide valid configuration values for each Special Function Register (SFR) of the CTSU. The user should obtain these .
