2.3 Mixed electric circuits
Mixed electric circuits, also called group circuits, are combinations of parallel
and series connections. Group circuits can always be reduced to their basic
components: the parallel and the series connections. One can use this characteristic
for the calculation of partial currents, partial voltages and partial resistance.
The following two examples and diagrams show how one has to proceed in this
regard.
