PHY2061 R. D. Field Department of Physics chp31_2.doc University of Florida DC Circuit Rules Loop Rule: The algebraic sum of the changes in potential encountered in a complete traversal of any loop of a circuit must be zero . V i loop = 0 . Junction Rule: The sum of the currents entering any junction must be equal the sum of the currents leaving that junction. II i in i out = ∑∑ Resistor: If you move across a resistor in the direction of the current flow then the potential change
