Department of Applied PhysicsCollege of Sciences, University of SharjahWorksheet of Kirchhoff’s Law by usingPHET SimulationStudentName:…………………………………………………………………………ID:…………………………………………….------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Title of the Experiment:Kirchhoff’s LawObjectives:To investigate Kirchhoff’s Laws: Kirchhoff’s Current Law (KCL) and Kirchhoff’s Voltage Law(KVL).Apparatus:DCPower supply, voltmeter, ammeter, resistors, and connecting wires.Theory and Background:Kirchhoff’s laws follow from the laws of conservation of energy and conservation of charge.These laws are used to analyze electrical circuits, which contain combinations of batteries,resistors and capacitors. In this experiment, we are interested in investigating Kirchhoff’s lawsfor a direct current (DC) circuit, for which the electrical currents are constants in magnitude anddirection.The two Kirchhoff’s laws are referred to as Kirchhoff’s Current Law (KCL) and Kirchhoff’s VoltageLaw (KVL).
