Voltage Division Rule: The voltage is divided between two series resistors in direct proportion to their resistance. This simple rule can be used in solving simple circuits or in simplifying the solution of complicated ones. In this post, the voltage divider circuit is studied and some examples are solved to show how this rule can be deployed in solving circuits.

Problem 1-16: Voltage Divider
In this solved problem, four circuits are solved using voltage divider (the voltage division rule). Problems are arranged from simple ones to more challenging ones. It is shown how voltage divider can be used to solve simple problems.
Ideal Independent Sources
The ideal independent voltage and current sources are explained. Their symbols and voltage-current characteristics are presented. It is shown how their definitions can be used to solve problems. Some examples are also provided to clarify their characteristics.
Problem 1-15: Power of Independent Sources
Determining power of independent voltage and current sources. Passive sign and active sign conventions are used to find out which source is supplyingpower and which one is absorbing.
