The experiment no. Linear circuits are composed entirely of independent sources. . By reviewing the principle of superposition. We were also able to know how to verify whether the linear response at any point in a linear circuit having several independent linear sources is equivalent to the algebraic sum of individual responses produced by each independent source acting alone. Great understanding and showing precision in every step we do are the things we considered while doing the experiment. we were able to finish it correctly and successfully. We easily understood the procedure but we experienced a little confused in connecting the wires. linear dependent sources and linear elements. I can say that after conducting the experiment. 7 explains the principle of superposition. we were able to investigate and learn the effects of multiple active linear source in a network. This experiment is to illustrate the principle of linearity. I learned that superposition can be applied only in linear circuits.CONCLUSION The experiment is all about “Superposition Theorem and Linearity”. In performing this experiment. whether the current that will flow in a resistor will be positive or negative. This states that the response in a linear circuit having more than one independent source can be obtained by adding the responses caused the separate independent sources acting alone.

A negative response in superposition impU lies that the assumed direction of the current is wrong.625) V= 4. 2.667 A I1= -0. application of superposition theorem does not normally lead to simplification of analysis. 3. 5.375 V + 0= 4I1-2I2 + -15= -2I1+10I2 I2= -1.633 V . 4. It is not the best technique to determine all currents and voltages in a circuit.667) V= 1.5 V= 2(-0. In addition.833+1.833 A 6. The number of responses are based from the number of independent source. It is possible to eliminate dependent sources on superposition.ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS AND PROBLEMS 1.8125 A V= 2(2. It is not possible to apply superposition theorem directly to determine power associated with an element.8125-0.625 A I1= 2. driven by multiple of sources. Solution: Vb= 10A Va= (1/2+1/2+1/3) = Vb/3 4/3Va= 10/3 Vx= 2. Solution: 10= 4I1-2I2 0= -2I1+10I2 I2= 0.
