Network Theorems

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Can someone explain to me what are these theorems with proper example?
    (a)thevenins theorem
    (b)nortons Theorem
    (c)super position principle

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Unfortunately, I am unfamiliar with the first 2 theorems, but I can explain you the superposition one.
    Imagine, for instance, you have got a known amount of charged particles in space, and you would like to know the electric field at a specific point in space, you would simply add each force made by each particle on that specific place.
    The superposition theorem assumes that you can handle every particle as it is alone in space and sum up all the contributions from each particle to a given point.
