Chapter 5. Resistance

People who study electronic circuit analysis use a lot of calculus. Other than the basic di/dt term I’ve already introduced, I promise to stay as far away from calculus as I can in this book, but we can’t stay away from equations. The whole point of selecting component values in circuits is to obtain a desired result. And the primary way you select component values is to perform calculations.

This book is not intended to show you how to make all the calculations. If you want to know that, you should go get your degree. But this book will cover some of the more fundamental calculations related to electronic circuits. And it will suggest what some of the more difficult calculations are, without actually trying to teach you how to do them. The objective is to give you enough familiarity with the topic that you can do some of the more basic calculations yourself, and can understand some of the more complex ones when someone does them for you.
