Now we go around the ri bad b bad i R i R+ = eq. 2 E 3 3 2 2 2 1 2 ght loop ( ) starting at point and going in the counterclockwise direction: Loop : 0 ( ) We have a system of three equations (eqs.1, 2, and 3) and three unknowns , , and bcd b bcd i R i R i i= eq. 3 E ( 29 3 . If a numerical value for a particular current is negative, this means that the chosen direction for this current is wrong and that the current flows in the opposite direction. We can write a fourth i 1 1 1 2 2 2 equation (Loop rule for the outer loop ) but this equation does not provide any new information. Loop : 0 ( ) abcd abcd i R i R= eq. 4 E E...
