Module 6

Objectives:

After completing this module students will be familiar with the definitions of current density, current, resistance, and resistivity.  They will be able to solve simple circuit problems.  students will be able to use Kirchhoff's rules to analyze DC circuits and find the equivalent resistance of resistors in series and in parallel.
