6.002 – Lecture, the Third

Posted on August 31, 2010



I watched lecture #3.

I read chapter 3.5-3.6 of Foundations of analog and Digital Electronic Circuits.


Now I’ve learned about circuit linearity and some helpful analysis techniques which apply specifically to linear circuits: superposition, Thevenin equivalences, and Norton equivalences.  Good stuff!  But the book keeps also going into how these things apply to circuits with dependent sources.  The reading assignments for the course had me skip over the section that introduces dependent sources.  I see that it will have me go back and read that later on, but in the meantime I’ve skimmed it, so I have at least some idea of what the book is talking about.

Thank you for reading!
