No problems. Good luck with the rest of your assignment.lol... thanks a bunch dave, i just wanted to clarify these little things.. I don't know why the professor would just throw us a curveball like tat and change his conventions...
Lol! Funny you should say that, I have recently received literature for work we are supposed to be doing for a company in Austria - all in German! I see the occasion diagram I recognise but at the minute I'm not even sure I'm the right guy for the job!Wait until you get some professor bringing in some equipment to fix and you discover that not only do you have to read the manual in German, but the Germans use slightly different symbology as well.

Lol! Is that what they call karma?!
its all your fault,
you started the elf puzzle.
In the UK, we very rarely use E at all. For example when Ohm's Law or power equations are quoted we always use V, whereas other sources (of which the e-book on this site is an example), they use E ref. http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_5/chpt_1/1.htmlReally? I was taught to use V as the symbol for voltage. E I always presumed was electromotive force, which is the same as voltage. Is there any place where one MUST be used instead of the other?
ref. http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_1/chpt_2/1.htmlThe mathematical symbol for each quantity is meaningful as well. The "R" for resistance and the "V" for voltage are both self-explanatory, whereas "I" for current seems a bit weird. The "I" is thought to have been meant to represent "Intensity" (of electron flow), and the other symbol for voltage, "E," stands for "Electromotive force." From what research I've been able to do, there seems to be some dispute over the meaning of "I." The symbols "E" and "V" are interchangeable for the most part, although some texts reserve "E" to represent voltage across a source (such as a battery or generator) and "V" to represent voltage across anything else.
