8051 reset pin circuit diagram

  1. Feb 16, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Draw a circuit diagram to show how the reset pin works.

    2. Relevant equations
    A high on this pin will reset the device.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    In the textbook it shows the ground branching out after the switch but before the reset pin. The textbook diagram shows the resistor is placed just before ground.

    However, in my diagram, I drew the resistor after the DC input and before the switch instead... does the circuit still work?
