Example Circuit Con’t Would the answer be different if we took another path? No. -5V + V 2 + V 4 + 2 = 0 From before, V 4 = 9V V 2 = -6.00 V Or the same result as before! 2

KVL Practice Problem 1 Compute the voltages associated with elements D, E and F as indicated. Show work so that V D =70, V E =200, and V F =50. Practice Problem 2 Compute the voltages associated with elements A, C, E and G as indicated. Write KVL equations showing how you get the following results: V A =-80, V C =120, V E =-40 and V G =-160. 3

Must obey the passive sign convention! V 1 + V 2 - 12 = 0 V 1 + V 2 = 12 The Single Loop Circuit Elements in a circuit which exclusively share a single node and hence carry the same current are in series . What is the series current, I S ? First, we need voltage references for the resistors. 5

What is the series current I S ? From KVL: V 1 + V 2 = 12 Invoke Ohm’s Law: V 1 = I S R 1 V 2 = I S R 2 Then substitute: I S R 1 + I S R 2 = 12 I S (R 1 + R 2 ) = 12 I S = 12/(R 1 + R 2 ) What is the power absorbed by each circuit element? For the lights:
