L Haken ECE110 transparencies – set 1 page 3 Kirchhoff Voltage Law (KVL) (The same can be said about elevation changes on a topographic map. Circuit nodes are like flat spots on the map; voltage drops or rises at circuit elements are like elevation changes down or up on the map.) Begin by labeling the nodes with A, B, C. Then solve the equation: V AB + V BC + V CA = 0 In any closed path: of all voltage drops = 0 In any closed path: of all voltage rises = 0

L Haken ECE110 transparencies – set 1 page 4 How many closed paths (loops) are in this diagram? Write two loop equations. You can start anywhere in a loop, and go clockwise or counterclockwise. Be careful about signs: is it a voltage drop or a voltage rise?

L Haken ECE110 transparencies – set 1 page 5 The battery symbol has an implied + on the side with the long line. Write in the + and – for clarity, and label nodes. Write a loop equation, and solve for V AB . Watch your signs!

L Haken ECE110 transparencies – set 1 page 6 Kirchhoff Current Law (KCL) For any portion of the circuit, These are called KCL node equations; all three are equivalent. (You can liken this to the network of water distribution pipes for a town. The network of pipes is like a node in a circuit. The total amount of water entering the network of pipes from the water tower equals the total amount of water leaving in buildings around town.)
