Unformatted text preview: our calculated values with our experimental measured values. Analysis is in following pages. Conclusion: In this experiment I learned the concepts behind both of kirchhoff’s rules and how to use them to find unknowns in a simple circuit. I was able to prove experimentally that kirchhoff’s rules are valid. Kirchhoff’s first rule says that the sum of the current going into a junction must equal the sum of the current leaving the junction, just like water in pipes. The second rule states that the sum of the change in voltage around a closed loop must equal zero. I was able to see a different way, in which many cases may be much easier, to solve for unknowns than using Ohm’s Law....
