### Electronics

In many electrical circuits, the values of components are specified in units with prefixes. This makes the numbers easier to handle without long strings of zeros.

mega = X 106
kilo = X 103
milli = X 10-3
micro = X 10-6
nano = X 10-9
pico = X 10-12

E = Potential Difference (volts)
I = Current (amperes)
R = Resistance (ohms)
P = Power (watts)

Power (watts)
E X I
I2 X R
E2 / R

Potential Difference (volts)
I X R
SQRT( P X R )
P / I

Current (amperes)
E / R
P / E
SQRT ( P / R )

Resistance (ohms)
E / I
E2 / P
P / I2

Resistances in series
RT = R1 + R2 + R3 .... + Rn

Resistances in parallel
1/RT = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3... + 1/Rn

Resistances in parallel (2 components)
RT = (R1 X R2) / (R1 + R2)

Capacitances in series
1/CT = 1/C1 + 1/C2 + 1/C3... + 1/Cn

Capacitances in parallel
CT = C1 + C2 + C3 .... + Cn

6dB High Pass
Series Cap = .159 / ( Impedance X Frequency )

6dB Low Pass
Series Inductor = Impedance / (6.28 X Frequency )

12dB Butterworth (high and low pass)
Capacitor = .1125 / ( Impedance X Frequency )
Inductor = ( .2251 X Impedance ) / Frequency
