Ohm’s law is one of the basic principles of electricity. It relates the basic parameters of electricity, current and voltage, to each other. Georg Ohm, after whom the law was…

This article focus on explaining the similarities and dissimilarities between neutral and earth (ground). Understanding the difference between the neutral and earth may be difficult in the beginning. A Lot…

Over-current Any situation in which the current flow through a device or conductor exceeds the desired value is known as over current. Both overload and short circuit can cause excessive…

**Transformer action** is a phenomenon by which EMF(Electro-motive force) is induced in from one coil to the other coil by electro magnetic induction. It is the basic principle of **electric transformers.**

Voltage division rule is one of the basic rules of circuit analysis. It is applicable to all series circuits and combination circuits. Series circuit always acts as a Voltage divider. In a series circuit, the same current flows through each resistance. Hence the voltage drops across each resistor are proportional to their ohmic value.

Current flow in a circuit is determined by the impedance offered by the circuit components, which is in turn determined by the way circuit components are connected. Series connection and parallel connection are the two simplest ways of connecting a circuit.
