Table of Contents. Also note that KCL is derived from the charge continuity equation in electromagnetism while KVL is derived from Maxwell — Faraday equation for static magnetic field the derivative of B with respect to time is 0. According to KCL, at any moment, the algebraic sum of flowing currents through a point or junction in a network is Zero 0 or in any electrical network, the algebraic sum of the currents meeting at a point or junction is Zero 0.
R A and R B are the input resistances of circuits as shown below. The circuits extend infinitely in the direction shown. Which one of the following statements is TRUE? Measurements of this voltage v t , made by moving-coil and moving-iron voltmeters, show readings of V 1 and V 2 respectively. The voltage V and current A across a load are as follows. In the circuit shown below, the voltage and current sources are ideal.
There are some simple relationships between currents and voltages of different branches of an electrical circuit. These relationships are determined by these basic laws known as Kirchhoff laws or more specifically Kirchhoff Current Law and Kirchhoff Voltage Law. Download as PDF for reference and revision. Make sure to read up on the recommended articles before you start off. Here is an excerpt of the article. You can download the pdf to read the full article —. A node is indicated by a dot.
Example 1: Find the three unknown currents and three unknown voltages in the circuit below: Note: The direction of a current and the polarity of a voltage can be assumed arbitrarily. To determine the actual direction and polarity, the sign of the values also should be considered. For example, a current labeled in left-to-right direction with a negative value is actually flowing right-to-left.

Kirchhoff, a German physicist can be stated as such:. By algebraic , I mean accounting for signs polarities as well as magnitudes. By loop , I mean any path traced from one point in a circuit around to other points in that circuit, and finally back to the initial point. However, for this lesson, the polarity of the voltage reading is very important and so I will show positive numbers explicitly:. If we were to take that same voltmeter and measure the voltage drop across each resistor , stepping around the circuit in a clockwise direction with the red test lead of our meter on the point ahead and the black test lead on the point behind, we would obtain the following readings:.
