## Electricity: Basic Principles

The first chapter of the book covers the basic principles of electricity, such as voltage, current, resistance, power, energy, Ohm's law, Kirchhoff's laws, etc. These are the fundamental concepts that you need to understand before moving on to more advanced topics. Here are some examples of solved problems from this chapter:

### Example 1

A 10-ohm resistor is connected across a 20-V battery. Find the current through the resistor.

#### Solution

We can use Ohm's law to find the current: I = V/R = 20/10 = 2 A

The current through the resistor is 2 A.

### Example 2

A circuit consists of three resistors connected in series: R1 = 5 ohms, R2 = 10 ohms and R3 = 15 ohms. The circuit is connected to a 60-V battery. Find the total resistance, total current and voltage drop across each resistor.

#### Solution

We can use Kirchhoff's voltage law to find the total resistance: Rt = R1 + R2 + R3 = 5 + 10 + 15 = 30 ohms

The total resistance is 30 ohms. We can use Ohm's law to find the total current: It = Vt/Rt = 60/30 = 2 A

The total current is 2 A. We can use Ohm's law to find the voltage drop across each resistor: V1 = I * R1 = 2 * 5 = 10 V

V2 = I * R2 = 2 * 10 = 20 V

V3 = I * R3 = 2 * 15 = 30 V

The voltage drop across R1 is 10 V, across R2 is 20 V and across R3 is 30 V.

## DC Electric Circuits

The second chapter of the book covers DC electric circuits, such as series and parallel circuits, voltage dividers, current dividers, etc. These are the basic types of circuits that you will encounter in electrical engineering. Here are some examples of solved problems from this chapter:

### Example 3

A circuit consists of four resistors connected in parallel: R1 = 4 ohms, R2 = 8 ohms, 3 = 12 ohms and R4 = 24 ohms. The circuit is connected to a 48-V battery. Find the equivalent resistance, total current and current through each resistor.

#### Solution

We can use the formula for parallel resistors to find the equivalent resistance: 1/Re = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3 + 1/R4

1/Re = 1/4 + 1/8 + 1/12 + 1/24

1/Re = 0.25 + 0.125 + 0.0833 + 0.0417

1/Re = 0.5

Re = 2 ohms

The equivalent resistance is 2 ohms. We can use Ohm's law to find the total current: It = Vt/Re = 48/2 = 24 A

The total current is 24 A. We can use the formula for parallel resistors to find the current through each resistor: I1 = Vt/R1 = 48/4 = 12 A

I2 = Vt/R2 = 48/8 = 6 A

I3 = Vt/R3 = 48/12 = 4 A

I4 = Vt/R4 = 48/24 = 2 A

The current through R1 is 12 A, through R2 is 6 A, through R3 is 4 A and through R4 is 2 A.

### Example 4

A circuit consists of three resistors connected in series: R1 = 6 ohms, R2 = 9 ohms and R3 = 15 ohms. The circuit is connected to a voltage source that has an internal resistance of 3 ohms and delivers a terminal voltage of 60 V. Find the load voltage and load current.

#### Solution

We can use Kirchhoff's voltage law to find the load voltage: Vl = Vt - Ir

Vl = Vt - It(Rt + r)

Vl = Vt - It(Rl + r)

where Vt is the terminal voltage, Ir is the internal voltage drop, It is the total current, Rt is the total resistance, r is the internal resistance and Rl is the load resistance. We can find the total resistance by adding the load resistance and the internal resistance: Rt = Rl + r

Rt = R1 + R2 + R3 + r

Rt = 6 + 9 + 15 + 3

Rt = 33 ohms

The total resistance is 33 ohms. We can find the total current by using Ohm's law: It = Vt/Rt

It = 60/33

It = 1.818 A

The total current is 1.818 A. We can find the load voltage by substituting the values into the equation: Vl = Vt - It(Rl + r)

Vl = 60 - (1.818)(30 + 3)

Vl = 60 - (1.818)(33)

Vl = 60 - (59.994)

Vl = 0.006 V

The load voltage is almost zero. We can find the load current by using Ohm's law: Il = Vl/Rl

Il = (0.006)/(30)

Il = (0.0002) A

The load current is almost zero.

## Network Laws and Theorems

The third chapter of the book covers network laws and theorems, such as mesh analysis, nodal analysis, superposition theorem, Thevenin's theorem, Norton's theorem, etc. These are useful techniques for analyzing complex circuits and simplifying them into equivalent circuits. Here are some examples of solved problems from this chapter:

### Example 5

Use mesh analysis to find the current in each branch of the circuit shown below.

#### Solution

We can label the four meshes as A, B, C and D, and assign a current to each mesh as Ia, Ib, Ic and Id. We can then write a KVL equation for each mesh, using the sign convention that the current is positive if it enters the positive terminal of a voltage source, and negative otherwise. We can also use Ohm's law to express the voltage drop across each resistor in terms of the current. For mesh A, we have: -10 + (Ia - Ib) * 2 + (Ia - Ic) * 4 + Ia * 6 = 0

For mesh B, we have: (Ib - Ia) * 2 + Ib * 8 + (Ib - Id) * 4 = 0

For mesh C, we have: (Ic - Ia) * 4 + Ic * 12 + (Ic - Id) * 6 + 20 = 0

For mesh D, we have: (Id - Ib) * 4 + (Id - Ic) * 6 + Id * 10 - 30 = 0

We can simplify and rearrange these equations into a matrix form: 12 -2 -4 0 Ia 10 -2 14 -0 -4 Ib 0 -4 0 22 -6 Ic -20 0 -4 -6 20 Id 30

We can use a calculator or a software to solve this system of linear equations and find the values of the currents: Ia = 1.667 A

Ib = -0.833 A

Ic = -1.667 A

Id = 1.667 A

The current in each branch is equal to the difference between the currents in the adjacent meshes. For example, the current in the branch with the 2-ohm resistor is Ia - Ib = 1.667 - (-0.833) = 2.5 A.

### Example 6

Use Thevenin's theorem to find the equivalent circuit of the circuit shown below between terminals a and b.

#### Solution

We can use Thevenin's theorem to find the equivalent circuit of a circuit with a single voltage source and a single resistor. The voltage source is equal to the open-circuit voltage between terminals a and b, and the resistor is equal to the equivalent resistance between terminals a and b when all independent sources are deactivated. To find the open-circuit voltage, we can use KVL or node-voltage method. We will use node-voltage method here. We can label the node between R1 and R2 as V1, and the node between R2 and R3 as V2. We can then write a KCL equation for each node, using Ohm's law to express the currents in terms of the voltages. For node V1, we have: (V1 - V2)/R2 + (V1 - Va)/R1 = 0

For node V2, we have: (V2 - V1)/R2 + (V2 - Vb)/R3 + (V2 - (-10))/R3 = 0

We can simplify and rearrange these equations into a matrix form: (1/R1 + 1/R2) -(1/R2) V1 Va/R1 -(1/R2) (1/R2 + 2/R3) V2 10/R3

We can substitute the values of R1, R2 and R3 as given in the circuit: (1/6 + 1/12) -(1/12) V1 10/6 -(1/12) (1/12 + 2/18) V2 10/18

V1 = 2.5 V

V2 = -3.333 V

The open-circuit voltage between terminals a and b is equal to V2 - Va: Voc = V2 - Va

Voc = -3.333 - 10

Voc = -13.333 V

The open-circuit voltage is -13.333 V. To find the equivalent resistance, we need to deactivate all independent sources and find the resistance seen from terminals a and b. We can do this by replacing the voltage sources with short circuits and the current sources with open circuits. In this case, we only have voltage sources, so we replace them with short circuits. The circuit then becomes:

We can see that R1 and R2 are in parallel, and their equivalent resistance is in series with R3. We can use the formula for parallel and series resistors to find the equivalent resistance: Req = (R1 * R2)/(R1 + R2) + R3

Req = (6 * 12)/(6 + 12) + 18

Req = (72)/(18) + 18

Req = 4 + 18

Req = 22 ohms

The equivalent resistance is 22 ohms. Therefore, the equivalent circuit of the circuit between terminals a and b is a single voltage source of -13.333 V in series with a single resistor of 22 ohms.

## Electrostatics

The fourth chapter of the book covers electrostatics, such as electrostatic fields, capacitance, electric potential, etc. These are important concepts for understanding how electric charges interact and how capacitors store energy. Here are some examples of solved problems from this chapter:

### Example 7

A point charge of 5 nC is placed at the origin of a coordinate system. Find the electric field intensity and electric potential at a point P(3,4) m.

#### Solution

We can use Coulomb's law to find the electric field intensity at point P: E = kQ/r^2

where k is the Coulomb's constant, Q is the charge at the origin, and r is the distance from the origin to point P. We can find the distance r by using the Pythagorean theorem: r = sqrt(x^2 + y^2)

r = sqrt(3^2 + 4^2)

r = sqrt(25)

r = 5 m

The distance r is 5 m. We can substitute the values of k, Q and r into the equation: E = kQ/r^2

E = (9 * 10^9)(5 * 10^-9)/(5^2)

E = (45 * 10^0)/(25)

E = 1.8 N/C

The electric field intensity at point P is 1.8 N/C. We can use the formula for electric potential to find the electric potential at point P: V = kQ/r

We can substitute the values of k, Q and r into the equation: V = kQ/r

V = (9 * 10^9)(5 * 10^-9)/(5)

V = (45 * 10^0)/(5)

V = 9 V

The electric potential at point P is 9 V.

### Example 8

A parallel-plate capacitor has a capacitance of 100 pF and a plate area of 0.01 m^2. The capacitor is connected to a battery of 12 V. Find the charge on each plate, the electric field intensity between the plates, and the energy stored in the capacitor.

#### Solution

We can use the formula for capacitance to find the charge on each plate: C = Q/V

where C is the capacitance, Q is the charge on each plate, and V is the voltage across the capacitor. We can rearrange the equation and substitute the values of C and V: Q = C * V

Q = (100 * 10^-12)(12)

Q = 1.2 * 10^-9 C

The charge on each plate is 1.2 nC. We can use the formula for electric field intensity between parallel plates to find the electric field intensity: E = V/d

where E is the electric field intensity, V is the voltage across the capacitor, and d is the distance between the plates. We can find the distance d by using the formula for capacitance of parallel plates: C = epsilon * A/d

where epsilon is the permittivity of free space, A is the plate area, and d is the distance between the plates. We can rearrange the equation and substitute the values of C, epsilon and A: d = epsilon * A/C

d = (8.85 * 10^-12)(0.01)/(100 * 10^-12)

d = 8.85 * 10^-4 m

The distance d is 8.85 * 10^-4 m. We can substitute the values of V and d into the equation for electric field intensity: E = V/d

E = (12)/(8.85 * 10^-4)

E = 13559.32 N/C

The electric field intensity between the plates is 13559.32 N/C. We can use the formula for energy stored in a capacitor to find the energy stored in the capacitor: W = (1/2)CV^2

where W is the energy stored, C is the capacitance, and V is the voltage across the capacitor. We can substitute the values of C and V into the equation: W = (1/2)CV^2

W = (1/2)(100 * 10^-12)(12^2)

W = (1/2)(100 * 10^-12)(144)

W = 7.2 * 10^-9 J

The energy stored in the capacitor is 7.2 nJ.
