Kirchoff’s laws

Start here

Kirchhoff’s laws are rules for understanding the behavior of electric current (I) and potential difference (V) in electrical circuits. They were first described in 1845 by German physicist Gustav Kirchhoff.

They are widely used in electrical engineering and physics; we’re studying them in class now.  The ideas behind them can be found in chapter 35 of Conceptual Physics (Hewitt/Pearson)  Here is Kirchoff’s voltage law:
