Unformatted text preview: 1 Lecture 15 Chapter 19. Electric Circuits Announcement: There will be no lectures on Monday March 28 and Wednesday March 30, 2011 to compensate for the evening exam #1 that took place on Feb 15th, 2011 and evening exam #2 that will take place on March 30 st , 2010. i 1 = i 2 i 2 = i 3 + i 4 Current at a Node Current Node Rule or Junction Rule or Kirchhoffs Current Law Energy in a Circuit Energy conservation (the Kirchhoff loop rule [2 nd law]): V 1 + V 2 + V 3 + = 0 along any closed path in a circuit V wire = EL V battery = ? V= U/q energy per unit charge Energy Conservation The algebraic sum of the changes in potential encountered in a complete traversal of any loop of circuit must be zero. Loop Rule or Junction Rule or Kirchhoffs Voltage Law V 1 + V 2 + V 3 + .... = along any closed path in a circuit. V = U q Energy per unit charge 2 E C F C The emf is measured in Volts, but it is not a potential difference!...
