Suppose we have the following circuit: I1 10 V 5 Ohms 2 Ohms 3 Ohms I2

Kirchhoff’s Laws You have already learned them! Law 1: The current going into a point must be the current going out of the point. So Iin = Iout Law 2: If you do a full loop, the net change in voltage is 0. We can use this to our advantage!

At the cross points, Iin = Iout I1 10 V 5 Ohms 2 Ohms 3 Ohms I2

If we do any loops then the net voltage is 0. That is the up voltage = the down voltage I1 10 V 5 Ohms 2 Ohms 3 Ohms I2 8 Ohms 6 Ohms 5 V I3

Physics Chutes and Ladders When you look at a circuit, first plot the potential raises and drops. In the direction of the current for each section, the voltages for from low (-) to high (+) potentials. Resistors go from + to –
