Voltage in Series Circuits
Voltage in a Series Circuit
Voltage in a series circuit is said to be additive. That means to find the
total voltage in any series circuit, just add up the voltages of each component
in that circuit.
Here is the formula for voltage total in a series circuit with 4 components:
Et= E1 + E2 + E3 + E4
If you know the total voltage and all the component voltages except one,
then here are formulas for a circuit with 4 components:
E1 = Et - E2 - E3 - E4
E2 = Et - E1 - E3 - E4
E3 = Et - E1 - E2 - E4
E4 = Et - E1 - E2 - E3
