Note-A-Rific: Super Kirchhoff! It’s quite unlikely that you will ever be faced with a problem this difficult on any exam. Still, it’s important for you to see just how far reaching Kirchhoff’s Rules can be, and the way that they can be applied to difficult circuits. Kirchhoff really had circuits even more complex than this in mind when he developed his rules. Just look at the circuit diagram for a dishwasher and you’ll see how complex the circuits can be for an everyday device. Problem : Determine the current in each part of this circuit. Solution : To figure this out, you will need to also calculate the voltage drops in each part of the circuit. If you are ever asked to do a similar question where you are asked only for the voltage drops, do that question the same way as this one . I’ve put in some letters to divide up the parts of the circuit where something might happen to the voltage. Notice that in between the letters there is only one resistor or one battery… I’ve isolated the circuit into manageable parts.

### What students are saying

• 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.
