Transcript of Kirchhoff's rules
is equal to . 1. Since and , also and , are connected in parallel, their voltage is the same. 2. In a parallel connection, the value of the current passing through a resistor must not be necessarily the same. It depends upon the value of the resistor. If the value of the resistor is the same, then the current across it is the same. Conclusion I I I I 1 2 3 4 V 5 Simple circuits can be analyzed using Ohm’s law and the rules for series and parallel combination of resistors. Very often it is not possible to reduce a complex circuit to a single loop. Therefore, to analyze complex circuits, we may use Kirchhoff’s law. We can simplify complicated circuits using of Kirchhoff's rules, the Current law and the Voltage law. But before introducing the rules we need to deﬁne the technical meanings of a junction and a loop.
Junction (Branch point) refers to any point where three
or more circuit elements meet.
Loop refers to any closed path of a circuit such that the point you start with is also the point you end up with. "The algebraic sum of all the currents entering and leaving any branch point in a circuit is equal to zero." This is based on the principle of conservation of energy. This is based on the principle of the law of conservation of charge. in out 1. The sum of currents entering a node is equal to the sum of currents leaving the same node I =I so the net ﬂow of electrical current into or out of a node is zero as indicated by Kirchhoff's Current law. Current entering a point in a circuit is equal to the current leaving the same point. The potential rise and potential drop within a specific closed circuit in a network must be equal.

The sum of the currents entering the node should equal the sum of the currents leaving the node. For each node, the percent difference is computed between the sum of the currents into the node and the sum of the currents out of the node.
Using Kirchhoff's Voltage law, the sum of the changes in electric potential is zero for any loop in the circuit. For each loop, the percent difference was computed between the sum of the potential rise and the sum of the potential drop in the loop. An electrical circuit called the Wheatstone Bridge was used to measure an unknown electrical resistance by balancing two legs of a bridge circuit, one leg of which includes the unknown component. This was used to experimentally demonstrate Kirchhoff's rules. Using the values measured from the Wheatstone Bridge circuit, it was proven that the algebraic sum of the currents at any junction of an electric circuit is equal to zero ,which states Kirchhoff's Current law, and the algebraic sum of all emf's and the resistance voltages in any continuous path of an electric circuit is equal to zero, which states Kirchhoff's Voltage law. In a complex circuit, the algebraic sum of the currents at any junction of an electric circuit is equal to zero, and the algebraic sum of all emf's and the resistance voltages in any continuous path of an electrical circuit is also equal to zero.
