Applied DC Fundamentals: Ohm's Law & DC Circuits

Applied DC Fundamentals: Ohm's Law & DC Circuits is part two of the Applied DC Fundamentals four-part training series.

Course objectives include:

  • Understand the various Ohm's law relationships
  • Understand known and unknown values and how to use the proper Ohm's law relationships to solve for the unknown values
  • Calculate the total equivalent resistance of series, parallel, and series-parallel resistive currents
  • Calculate currents and voltages in series and parallel circuits
  • Understand the proper formula for calculating DC-circuit power
  • Explain simple rules and formulas for calculating circuit values
  • Calculate voltages and currents for circuits consisting of both series- and parallel-connected resistors
  • Determine resistance values for multi-range voltmeter and ammeter circuits
  • Calculate the power dissipated by each resistor in a series DC circuit
  • Calculate the power dissipated by each resistor in DC circuits consisting of both parallel- and series-parallel-connected resistors.
