Summary: For KCL, Notice that you only need current references (voltage references are unnecessary). Imagine that KCL is done in the Amazon basin, only rivers; no hills or mountains. KCL convention—in this class we will usually sum the currents going OUT of the node (we could sum the currents going in, but summing outgoing currents will help with Node Voltage Method later on). For KVL, you only need voltage references. Imagine that KCL is done in the Mojave desert, no running water, only hills, valleys and plateaus.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
