Multiloop Circuits - Kirchhoff's Rules The sum of the currents entering any junction is equal to the sum of the currents leaving the junction. Kirchhoff's Junction Rule : The algebraic sum of the changes in potential encountered in a complete traversal of any loop in a circuit is equal to zero. Kirchhoff's Loop Rule :

V iR = - Resistance Rule : , the change in the potential is .
