Our goal is to solve for the current through resistor R4 in Fig. 17. The standard method This method involves assigning currents to each branch of the circuit and then applying KVL and KCL. In Fig. 17 we have assigned currents I0 , I1 , and I2 . 2 Resistors 15 but in circuits with more than three branches KCL gives additional relations. Next we use KVL around the loops indicated in the figure. 29) while Loop 2 gives and finally for Loop 3. We thus have four equations relating the three unknown currents I0 , I1 , and I2 and need to solve for I1 .

In electronics, we are usually concerned with currents (the flow of charge) rather than charge. If we take the time derivative of Eq. 2) and note that, by definition, I = dQ dt we get I=C dV . 3) Viewed from this perspective, C is the constant relating a time-varying voltage across the capacitor to the AC current through the capacitor. 1 Equivalent circuit laws for capacitors As with resistors, capacitors in series and parallel can be combined to form simpler equivalent circuits. 1 Series capacitors Consider, for example, three capacitors in series as shown in Fig.

When t = RC, the current has dropped to about 37% of its initial value and the capacitor has reached roughly 63% of its final value. This notion of time constant makes physical sense, too: a larger capacitor will take longer to fill with charge; a larger resistor will limit the flow of charge, thus increasing the time it takes to charge up the capacitor. 2 Discharging Suppose that we have waited long enough that the capacitor has become fully charged. We now throw the switch to the down position. Resetting our clock to t = 0, our initial conditions are now Vc = V0 and V = 0.
