2 Preliminaries Branch Node Loop Voltage drop / rise The following statements are true and equivalent There is a 5 V voltage drop from a to b There is a 5 V voltage rise from b to a There is a -5 V voltage rise from a to b There is a -5 V voltage drop from b to a • The first expression is the most common • In most cases, we will be concerned with voltage drops a b + 5 V - Kirchhoof’s Voltage Law (KVL) The algebraic sum of all voltage drops around any closed loop is zero
