P2F10 2 Electromotive force emf is the "energy per unit electric charge" used to separate two opposite charges. It has the same units as electric potential. (volts) Sources of emf in circuits include batteries, capacitors, generators… pump High (+) reservoir Low (-) reservoir

P2F10 3 Kirchhoff’s Circuit Rules (the simple statement) 1-VOLTAGE RULE (LOOP RULE): The sum of changes in the potential ( V ) encountered in a complete traversal of any loop of a circuit must be zero. 2-CURRENT RULE (JUNCTION RULE): The sum of all currents into a point in a circuit is equal to the sum of all currents leaving that point.

P2F10 4 EMF Loop Rule for Circuits The sum of changes in the potential ( V ) encountered in a complete traversal of any loop of a circuit must be zero. For a move through a resistor in the direction of the current, the change in V is - iR ; in the opposite direction it is + iR For a move through an emf from the negative terminal to the positive, the change in V is + E . E i R To solve for the current in a loop. Add up the EMF’s around the loop. 0 / E iR i E R - = =

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
