The algebraic sum of all currents entering a node must always be zero where inis the nthcurrent. N is the number of branches.A common assignment: 1.if the current is entering the node, assign a negative “-“sign and 2.if the current is leaving the node, assign a positive “+” sign.For the following figureThe node equation can be written as To use KCL to analyze a circuit,1.Write KCL equations for the currents2.Use Ohm’s law to write currents in terms of bode voltages (one equation for each resistor)3.Solve to find values of node voltage and current

where v n is the n th voltage. N is the number of elements in the loop A common assignment: 1. if the positive (+) side of the voltage is encountered first, assign a positive “+”sign to the voltage across the element. 2. If the negative (-) side of the voltage is encountered first, assign a negative “-”sign to the voltage across the element. For the following figure To use KVL to analyze a circuit, 1. Write KVL equations for voltages 2. Use Ohm’s law to write voltages in terms of resistances and currents. 3. Solve to find values of the currents and then voltages.
