Worksheet: NOR Gates

In this worksheet, we will practice determining the input and output of NOR gates in logic circuits and completing truth tables for NOR gates.

Q1:

The diagram shows 2 NOR gates connected as part of a logic circuit. Use a truth table to work out what type of logic gate this arrangement is equivalent to.

  • AAn AND gate
  • BAn XOR gate
  • CA NOT gate
  • DAn OR gate
  • EA NOR gate

Q2:

The diagram shows 3 NOR gates, where the outputs of the first 2 NOR gates are the inputs to the third. If input A is 1, input B is 0, input C is 1, and input D is 1, what is the output?

Q3:

The diagram shows a NOR gate. If input 𝐴 is 0 and input 𝐵 is 1, what will the output be?

  • A0
  • B1

Q4:

The diagram shows a NOR gate. If input A is 0 and the output is 1, what must input B be?

Q5:

Which pair of logic gates shown in the diagram produces the same output as a NOR gate?

  • A(c)
  • BNone
  • C(d)
  • D(b)
  • E(a)

Q6:

NOR Gate
Input A Input B Output
0 0 𝑝
0 1 𝑞
1 0 0
1 1 0

The truth table shows the output of a NOR gate for various combinations of inputs.

What is the value of 𝑝 in the table?

What is the value of 𝑞 in the table?
