September 30, 2010 University Physics, Chapter 26 2 Chapter 26 Section 3 Multi-Loop Circuits To analyze a multi-loop circuit, identify all complete loops and all junction points in the circuit and apply Kirchhoff’s Rules to these parts of the circuit separately Analyze the single loops in a multi-loop circuit with Kirchhoff’s Loop Rule and the junctions with Kirchhoff’s Junction Rule, and obtain a system of coupled equations in several unknown variables These coupled equations can be solved in several ways Solution with matrices and determinants Direct substitution

September 30, 2010 University Physics, Chapter 26 3 Example: Kirchhoff’s Rules (1) The circuit here has three resistors, R 1 , R 2 , and R 3 and two sources of emf, V emf,1 and V emf,2 This circuit cannot be resolved into simple series or parallel structures To analyze this circuit, we need to assign currents flowing through the resistors We can choose the directions of these currents arbitrarily

September 30, 2010 University Physics, Chapter 26 4 At junction b the incoming current must equal the outgoing current At junction a we again equate the incoming current and the outgoing current But this equation gives us the same information as the previous equation! We need more information to determine the three currents 2 more independent equations Example: Kirchhoff’s Laws (2) 2 1 3 i i i  1 3 2 i i i 
