The junction rule describes the conservation of which quantity? Note that this rule applies only to circuits that are in a steady state. voltage resistance Correct Part B Apply the junction rule to the junction labeled with the number 1 (at the bottom of the resistor of resistance ). Answer in terms of given quantities, together with the meter readings and and the current . Correct If you apply the juncion rule to the junction above , you should find that the ezpression you get is equivalent to what you just obtained for the junction labeled 1. Obviously the conservation of charge or current flow enforces the same relationship among the currents when they separate as when they

Sum the voltage changes across each circuit element around this loop going in the direction of the arrow. Remember that the current meter is ideal. Express the voltage drops in terms of , , , the given resistances, and any other given quantities. Correct Part D Now apply the loop rule to loop 1 (the larger loop spanning the entire circuit). Sum the voltage changes across each circuit element around this loop going in the direction of the arrow. Express the voltage drops in terms of , , , the given resistances, and any other given quantities. \...
