KIRCHHOFF'S LAWS
KIRCHHOFF'S LAWSThe circuits in this chapter are all solvable by means of Ohm's law as demonstrated. There are, however many circuits that are more complex, which cannot be solved by Ohm's law alone. For these circuits, Kirchhoff's laws may provide the necessary techniques and procedures.Kirchhoff's laws were discovered by Gustav Robert Kirchhoff, a German physicist of the nineteenth century. The two laws may be stated as follows: Law No. 1.In a series circuit, the algebraic sum of the voltage drops in that circuit must be equal to the source voltage. Kirchhoff's law of voltage drops may also be applied to any portion of a circuit that is…
