Power Consumed in a Resistor

Power Consumed in a Resistor

Current flowing through a resistor causes power to be dissipated as heat or thermal energy. For this reason, the maximum power rating of the resistor must not be exceeded or the resistor may overheat – probably causing its destruction. The maximum power which...

The plcLib User Guide is now available as a single downloadable PDF file, intended for offline use. It is almost identical to the online version, but organised as a series of chapters rather than separate web pages. Please see the Contents Page for more details....

Half Adder

A half adder circuit performs a 1-bit binary addition, producing a Sum output and also a Carry-Out to a more significant stage. Operation of the half adder is summarised in the following truth table. The half adder may be constructed using an XOR (exclusive-or) gate,...
