Multi-loop Circuits: Kirchhoff’s Rules (~1845) Most circuits do not reduce to a simple R eq Kirchhoff’s Loop Rule: Take a round trip: ΔV bat + ΔV r + ΔV R = 0 E – Ir –IR = 0 0 = loop i V (Conservation of Energy)

Who are these guys? (Butch asked of the Sundance Kid) There is some confusion in the Mechanical Universe* as to what Wheatstone and Kirchhoff looked like. They got it wrong in the video. Here following are 3 main players. *Episode 33—see lots of views of Greenfield Village at The Henry Ford

Georg Simon Ohm Georg Simon Ohm (1787-1854) Georg Simon Ohm was a German physicist born in Erlangen, Bavaria, on March 16, 1787. As a high school teacher, Ohm started his research with the recently invented electrochemical cell , invented by Italian Count Alessandro Volta . Using equipment of his own creation, Ohm determined that the current that flows through a wire is proportional to its cross sectional area and inversely proportional to its length or Ohm's law .

    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.
