## Norton Current Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Norton Current.

In = Vt / Rt

- Where In is the Norton Current (amps)
- Vt is the Thevenin voltage (volts)
- Rt is the Thevenin resistance (ohms)

To calculate norton current, divide the thevenin voltage by the thevenin resistance.

## How to Calculate Norton Current?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Norton Current.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the Thevenin voltage (volts). In this example, the Thevenin voltage (volts) is measured to be 40.
- Next, determine the Thevenin resistance (ohms). For this problem, the Thevenin resistance (ohms) is calculated to be 4.
- Finally, calculate the Norton Current using the formula above:

In = Vt / Rt

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives:

In = 40 / 4 = 10 (amps)

**Example Problem #2: **

Using the same process as example problem 1, we first define the variables outlined by the formula. In this case, the values are:

Thevenin voltage (volts) = 60

Thevenin resistance (ohms) = 10

Entering these values into the formula above gives us::

In = 60 / 10 = 6 (amps)
