Example text

As we add more reactive elements, we can achieve a higher slope, so filters are often referred to by their order, which is the number of reactive elements contributing to the slope. A third-order filter would have three reactive elements, and its ultimate slope would, therefore, be 18 dB/octave. Although the curve reaches an ultimate slope, the behaviour at cut-off is of interest, not least because it allows us to say at what frequency the filter begins to take effect. On the diagram, a line was drawn to determine the ultimate slope.

Therefore, we can ignore the battery, or replace it with a piece of wire whilst we calculate the resistance of the total circuit: Next, we need to find the output voltage. We will use the potential divider equation: So: Now for a much more complex example. 11). 11 For some obscure reason, we want to know the current flowing in the 1 Ω resistor. The first thing to do is to redraw the circuit. Before we do this we can observe that the 5 Ω resistor in parallel with the 12 V battery is irrelevant. Yes, it will draw current from the battery, but it does not affect the operation of the rest of the circuit.

This is still rather unwieldy, so symbols are assigned to the various units: charge has symbol Q, current I and time t. This is a very useful equation, and we will meet it again when we look at capacitors (which store charge). Meanwhile, current has been flowing, but why did it flow? If we are going to move electrons from one place to another, we need a force to cause this movement. This force is known as the electro motive force (EMF). Current continues to flow whilst this force is applied, and it flows from a higher potential to a lower potential.
